      Dr. Schafer was my first choice simply because of word of mouth references. I probably talked to 20 people over 5 years that he had operated on and not one had a bad experience; most had better than expected results. My knees had been painful and unusable since I was age 42-43. I was terrified of having the surgery because of the expected pain; it was much less than I expected, very tolerable. Bonus, I was able to walk again right after! You won't regret this surgery. I have my life back.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
