      DR.GORDON REPLACED MY KNEE 2YRS AGO.GREAT DR. LISTENS AND ANSWERS ALL QUESTIONS.I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM.
      in Mount Prospect, IL |
      My TKR went better than I could imagine, and I am sure Dr Gordon's skills were the reason. Sure you leg will swell, and you will have some pain. Watch a YouTube video showing a similar surgery, so you can tell just invasive it is. But I can kick myself for waiting so long. After 2 weeks no walker, no cane. Its now been six weeks, and my range of motion is almost perfect. Dr Gordon always took the time to explain everything. I never felt rushed. Thank you Dr Gordon and the entire IBJI staff!!!

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
