World-class surgeon, World-class man. I just completed surgery with Dr. Carr, and he blew all my expectation out of the water. I broke my leg a week ago, and was advised to see an orthopedic surgeon, as my break seemed a nasty one to my primary doctor. I totally lucked out when he recommended me to see Dr. Carr. I expected to be seen and fixed to the best of a surgeons ability, but I did not expect how good the experience would be with Dr. Carr. This man was a surgeon for the U.S. Army in the Middle East piecing back together our fine men and women, giving them hope in situations where they may not have had much. His experience is world-class. He’s also just a great guy. Takes so much time to listen, explain and make you feel comfortable. He exudes kindness, positivity, empathy and professionalism. All the hospital staff sang his praises before surgery, they’re all big fans and it’s easy to see why. I’m so lucky to have found Dr. Carr. Choose him and you’ll feel lucky too

Excellent.... best doctor I have ever been to in Las Vegas. Prior knee surgery with another doctor was horrendous and painful. Dr Carr is a down to earth physician that respects his patients. Couldn’t be any better pre-op or post-op total knee replacement surgery. Many thanks to Dr. Carr and Marisa for making this Robotic Knee replacement surgery with minimal pain and recovery.

Dr Carr is very compassionate and he is always there to answer questions. The performance of my knee replacement is exceptional and I’ve had minimum pain. I walked fifty miles on a two week trip, after only three months. When it’s time to do the other knee he is the only doctor I would consider. His assistant Marissa is also exceptional.

I recently had total right hip replacement done by Dr. Carr. He is the most qualified and outstanding communicator I’ve ever encountered in the medical field. He gave my wife and I his cell number and stayed intouch throughout my recovery. I would highly recommend doctor Carr. He made the surgery very pleasant experience. Very caring doctor.
