Dr. Rogusky did my knee replacement when other local Drs would not. Thanks to that, I am now able to exercise again, and have lost 50 lbs. this has been close to life changing. Thank you!

Review for Dr. Rogusky

Dr. Ellis did my right knee replacement 3 years ago. Excellent care and results all around. He will be doing my left knee replacement in Jan 2022.

Review for Dr. Ellis

Fantastic experience. Dr. Ellis relaxed my knee when many doctors wouldn't because of my age. They all said I was too young even though my quality of life was being drastically affected. Dr. Ellis recognized this fact and I'm so glad I went through with the surgery. My new knee is amazing.
