Excellent. He repaired a shattered kneecap. Upon return to my Orthopedist in Bay Area, 7 other Orthopedists review the pre and post op X-Rays and absolutely marveled at the brilliance of his surgery and the techniques applied. It took 3 years of PT to return to skiing however I have skied for an extra 11 years following Dr Alexander's surgical intervention.
