Wrong size implant

Dr. Kraay replaced my knee with an implant that was too large! After several months of pain I went to another Orthopedic surgeon for a second opinion and after looking at the scan he said the implant was too large! I am still in pain ( 8 months) and am considering a law suit. He also is very rude and his comments are totally out of line.

One Star

Dr Kraay was very arrogant, and unless you are thin as a rail do not bother going for a surgery consult, unless you want to be humiliated.

Would not return to him

Dr Kraay was dismissive, did not listen to me, and did not even offer any solution for me., other than to continue in pain and immobility.
