My mother had a total knee replacement surgery on July 12th 2017, she was sent home with a paper RX, to only last her 6 days. After several attempts for a refil, she has now been out of pain management medication for 3 days after only being post op 1 week. TERRIBLE AFTER CARE & PAIN MANAGEMENT!!!!!!!
I had Dr. Emerson perform a total hip replacement on my right hip in June 2012. Dr. Emerson performed flawlessly and as of today I have had no pain whatsoever. Thank you Dr. Emerson for giving me my life back to enjoy. Fred Guidotti Lockwood Ca

Had my right hip replaced 10 weeks ago. Age 70. Excellent surgeon! All went so well. He pays great attention to details. I had some special needs because of a previous spinal cord injury. He did not forget a thing. He explains everything and nicely checks on you. He does a lot of hip and knee work and sees a lot of patients but always remembers you on a personal level. His surgery scheduler is a really thoughtful, caring, and detailed person. Sansum Clinic is top notch. Great hospital.

I am 71 years old and Dr. Emmerson replaced my right knee in May of this year. After 6 weeks of physical therapy I could walk and undertake other activities easily. Now three months since the surgery, I feel better than I did before the surgery and continue to improve. I look forward to a life with no significant constraints on what I am able to do, including long distance walking, skiing and fly fishing in California's rivers. I could not be more pleased with the outcome Dr. Emmerson enabled.

Excellent surgery skills and I made a rapid recovery after hip replacement surgery. Dr. Emmerson was very attentive in his hospital follow up each day and in setting follow up appointments.
