I had my right knee implant surgery on June 8, 2020. This surgery was my second knee replacement this year and the other was my left knee on January 27th and a review has been submitted previously for that one. I was unable to walk for almost two years and in a wheel chair for a year and a half. Having the same, now retired, Othopedic surgeon for 45 years and a total of 8 previous surgeries, I used this time to find his replacement. I can tell you that I found everything I needed in Dr. Joshi, the results of his education, and skill, along with the Joint Ranch @ Covenant Hospital staff. I am able to walk again, without any support devices. I will always recommend Dr. Joshi and his staff as they resolved my issues during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Had my 1st surgery with Dr. Joshi on 06/01/2009, had my right hip replaced. My 2nd surgery was 07/31/2009, fixed broken right femur. My 3rd surgery was in 2011 to add additional screws in my left hip. My 4th surgery,02/07/2019, which was getting my left hip ready for the custom fit hip to be placed in my hip on 07/19/2019, 5th surgery. I also had right carpal tunnel surgery by Dr. Joshi, don’t remember the year. I haven’t had any issues or complaints with any of my surgeries with Dr. Joshi. I would recommend Dr. Joshi to my family and friends. He’s the only orthopedic doctor I trust.

Had a hip replacement following a motorcycle wreck. I have been very satisfied with Dr. Joshi and staff. The surgery went well and I felt like I had the necessary information and reasonable expectations going in. I had very little pain following surgery and my recovery has gone smoothly. Highly recommend.
