I had partial knee replacement done by Dr Sutherland and it was a fantastic experience from start to finish. I'm so happy that I'm getting my other knee done as soon as possible

Review for Dr. Sutherland

Dr NoonBurg addressed the shoulder pain with another shot. This shot seems to help any pain, that was there, prior to this visit. The prior visit was addressed with a shot, from a different angle. It was not successful, thereby the 2ndshot. So far, it seems to be working.
