    - in Stafford, TX |

    I had a total knee replacement in December 2015. Dr. Matsu is an excellent surgeon and he cares about his patients. I was in-patient rehab and experienced redness at the incision site. Dr. Matsu was called and he came out to my rehab facility in Richmond, Texas. He determined that the redness was caused by the glue used when closing my incision. Coming out to Richmond after hours is something that others doctors no longer do. He has always been extremely kind and caring. I highly recommend him!
