    Very matter of fact and honest. Good at answering any questions and attentive follow up after surgery. I had a knee replacement and would do another with him again if needed.

    If knee pain is so severe that it causes damage and diminishes your quality of life, your doctor might suggest knee replacement.

    How Much Does Knee Replacement Cost?

    Your out-of-pocket expenses will be determined by insurance coverage, and where you have the surgery.
