Patient Comments (6)
in Salt Lake City, UT |
Dr Fukushima is aswome! He surgically repaired my broken patella by removing part of the broken bone and reattaching tendons (previously attached to that piece) to the remaining patella in my knee. I am almost through with therapy and my knee is close to 100%. Dr Fukushima is personable, answers all my questions, and is a great surgeon!
Salt Lake City, UT |
Went in today for an examination. A little long of a wait but on arrival Dr. Fukushima was friendly and efficient. He was helpful and knowledgeable and did the tests with minimal discomfort. He was open about options and conservative on recommendations. He answered my question but spoke fast and his handwriting was hard to read and so be ready to take quick notes. Overall, I will likely recommend this doctor.
in Salt Lake City, UT |
Two highly respected ortho surgeons told me that both of my knees had to come out. I sought another opinion from Dr. Fukushima. He told me not to let them touch me with a knife, yet; that we had several other options and my knees would last another three years. I took his advice. It is now three years later and I have lived a good life, skiing, golf, walking with my dogs and grandkids. But, the knees are now finally shot. Going again to see him for his input as to a surgeon. I recommend him.

He was very rushed and did not take the time to explain his diagnosis to me. He was condescending and rude.
