    The operation was successful and relatively pain free. Dr Fleming's office manages a physical therapy unit so he is able to monitor progress following the operation and follow up.

    Have gone to Dr. Fleming for both knee and ankle problems. He is thorough in his analysis and treatment, and he conveys feedback in an understandable way. I would highly recommend him.
