Dr Bruns has a wonderful patient manner, instilling the top level of confidence. He has performed a total knee replacement on my right knee and will replace the left knee in a few weeks. Can't recommend him or his staff highly enough. If applicable, ask for Iovera treatment.

I think Dr. Bruns is an outstanding physician. He is professional and really knows what he is doing! He did surgery on my torn meniscus and fractured kneecap. I have no pain now. He is also working on getting my hip bursitis fixed. Another doctor told me just to live with it though I have been suffering with it for 1 1/2 years. He said it would most likely resolve itself. It hasn't resolved itself so Dr. Bruns is referring me to a more aggressive treatment! I like that!

Dr Bruns has done both of my knee replacements, treated broken shoulder and ankle in addition to other arthritis and degenerative problems. Always respectful of patient choices for treatment options. Very professional courteous and knowledgeable. A caring and compassionate Dr who gives back with philanthropic work too
