He and his staff were professional, charming and cordial. I felt like my surgery was a miracle. His PA said he would challenge me to a tennis game. Of course I thought I would never play again. Within six months after surgery I was on the courts and felt as if I never had a hip problem.

Had left total knee replacement Aug 2017 after 4 months of pain, using a walker and having seen 6 ortho surgeons for evaluation. So happy I decided on Dr. Gordon. Could walk the same day, no pain, great follow-up and PT coming to home. Very happy with the outcome. Thank you.
