Dr. Curtin did both of my knees for total replacement surgery; the first in October 2015 and the second in January 2019. Both surgeries were great and my recovery was minimal. I was particularly interested in the great direction Dr. Curtin gave his operating staff in keeping infections to a minimum. His entire operating crew wore the equivalent of Hazmat suits where there was no possibility of infection. I feel that Dr. Curtin uses the absolute latest in technology for joint replacement. My wife has had 3 knee surgeries and I have had 2. I would recommend Dr. Curtin for anyone who is considering Orthopedic surgery on Hip or Knee! Brooks Shepherd, Mint Hill, NC

e knee and top of the thigh. Brian looked at me and said, lets get an X-ray. Xray showed no problems and Brian said, "It must be a tissue issue." As he was walking away, I asked if physical therapy would help, and he said, "Sure, you can give it a try. If it doesnt help, give us a call and we'll schedule an MRI." Fast forward a few months, he orders an MRI of my hip (not the soft tissue he said was the probably the problem) and guess what? It WAS a soft tissue issue. Now I need ANOTHER MRI to see exactly what th issue is. What a waste of time. And money.
