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.
