    Aloha, Linda performed a total knee replacement on my right knee. I cannot give a more positive rating RE: Linda. The recovery is going very well - better than my other knee ten years ago. Linda's competency is unmatched. Everything she does is aimed at a successful & quick recovery time. Her personal involvement & communication skills are the best. I know many who have benefitted from Linda's skills & professionalism. Everybody loves her & her work. I give Linda my highest recommendation.

    I am so happy that I found Dr. Linda Rasmussen. I have had serious injuries to my neck and spine in 1998 from a car wreck. So when I fell and broke my hip I was really afraid. I waited two years, suffering, unable to walk, drive, sleep, clean. When I found Dr. Rasmussen it was a blessing!! I wouldn't have waited if I knew about her before!! Now it's 6 months post surgery and I'm almost 100% I am gardening, driving, swimming. I have my life back Thank YOU Linda Rasmussen.

    I was in pain for couple of years. Lucky for me, I am a volunteer at Castle Hospital where Dr. Rasmussen noticed that I was walking slower and slower each time she saw me. I had severe Arthritis in both knees. I said what can I do about it. She said all I had to do was come see her at the office. Everything from there on was simple The office staff and the hospital staff made things so easy After my first knee surgery was complete I couldn't wait to do my second knee. Dr. R is the best.

    I am an active 46 year old male who had been battling pain since my teens from a car accident. I had an arthroscopic knee surgery seven years ago, but never attained 100% recovery and range of motion. After having a TKR a little over two months ago, I am now pain free and able to enjoy weight lifting, jujitsu, etc. Dr. Rasmussen kept her promise, "no more pain." She is heaven-sent and highly recommended.

    Dr. Rasmussen and her staff are incredible. The attention to detail, the feeling of having everything thought of and taken care of for me was awesome. Her team of professional people work so well together- nothing was forgotten. Dr. Rasmussen answered all my questions and explained everything in a way that I understood what was about to happen. I was completely confident in her ability to do my knee replacement.

    Dr. Rasmussen successfully performed arthroscopic surgery on my left knee in 2016, to repair two tears in my meniscus. Surgery went well; recovery time was minimal, her patient ~ doctor rapport is excellent. I highly recommend Dr. Rasmussen. Her office staff is cordial and caring. Her surgical staff is very professional and sincerely interested in you, as a patient.

    Dr. Rasmussen is a pleasure to deal with. I needed hip replacement surgery; she explained the reasons why, the procedure details and the recovery process. The surgery went well with minimal pain. The recovery with therapy at Castle hospital was thorough and effective. The staff at Castle was wonderful, always concerned with my post op recovery, as was the therapist. If you need this type of surgery, do not fear it I would recommend Dr. Rasmussen as well as Castle hospital.

    Dr. Rasmussen repaired my broken femur in 2002 and for years after, I had to think to remember which hip it was that was broken! Alas, about 12 years later at age 57, the hip was starting to bother me due to bone spurs and other issues, so I saw Dr Rasmussen again and had a hip replacement done January 11th 2016. It's been one month and I'm doing great, biking, swimming, and doing the Koko Crater stairs (slowly, I'll admit)! Dr. Rasmussen explains everything clearly, and does excellent work!
