Dr. Stuart takes a personal interest in his patients. He made hospital calls himself everyday I was in hospital. His technique for complete knee replacement was final decision for me. Post op I have done exceptionally well.

I previously had a pcl replaced but 8 years later I was having pain in the same knee. I went to another dr and he said he couldn't figure out what was wrong even though he did a bone graft and saw the inside of my knee. We got tired of going to him and him not being able to figure out what the problem was. Dr. Stuart's office, staff and Dr. Stuart himself were very welcoming and we felt as if they were there for us. Dr. Stuart took one look at my knee, did a little twisting and told us I was missing a pcl and another ligament. When we took the MRI he was exactly right. How could a guy who had never see my previous MRIs or anything figure this out? He's just amazing. I've sent friends to see him and told them it was worth the longer drive to get amazing care. After surgery he took the time to come up to my room and check on me every day i was in the hospital. When I have questions now as I rehab, his staff is always there whether on the phone or in email, to answer my questions and I never feel as if I'm bothering anyone. Dr. Stuart is one of the best orthopedic surgeons in the state of MN if not the country. If anyone has knee pain take the time, even if it is a longer drive, to go to Mayo Clinic and see Dr. Stuart. He has made my way of life much better and he has been very optimistic that I will be back on the field soon and my knee will be better than ever.

Quick and easy

Dr. Stuart successfully operated on my knee. The previous surgeon wasn't successful. No more research needed on Dr. Stuart. He is one of the best. Trust me. I did the research. My other ortho doc wasted my time money and most importantly my quality of life for nearly a year. Save the time money and hassle and just go see Dr. Stuart.
