Patient Comments (2)
in Shelton, CT |
I am a 62 yo male. My min. invasive TKR was done at Greenwich Hospital in Oct 2016. Within 10 days I had full range of motion (0 - 140), and walking w/o a walker in less than 2 wks. 4 wks. post surgery I was walking w/o a cane. Here I am at just under 4 months and my knee feels great, with only a little stiffness from sitting for long periods of time. Dr. Kavanagh is a highly competent surgeon, and his min. invasive approach makes a huge difference with recovery time. Highly Recommended!

Dr. K had a direct and logical approach to everything concerning my TKA. I was never in any doubt as to the intelligence and competence of him, his staff, and his operating team.
