    I am currently 53 years old and had a Total Knee Replacement (TKR) done by Dr. Phillips at NE Baptist Hospital. The surgery went without a hitch in a couple of hours. He is quick, precise, and to the point, and is the best at his task. After the surgery, he was caring and quick to inform about the recovery that lies ahead. He and his staff are easy to reach when any issue may arise!

    His method of hip replacement caused very little pain and a very quick recuperation. I had both done at the same time and was walking unassisted within 2 weeks. I used very little pain medication after the surgery. I think I may have had the best surgeon at the best hospital for hip replacements in our area.
