49 year old female... Bone on bone in both knees for years...so glad I took the step forward to improve the quality of my life and live pain free...I'm 5 months out of surgery and my life is mine again...pain free! Dr. Talmo explained for my case, a bilateral knee replacement would be his suggestion...he earned my trust after hearing the reasoning and the description of what to expect. Dr. Talmo's experience, bedside manner, care are top notch. Excellent office staff!

Had knee replacement four years ago and couldn't be happier. He had to get my bone legged leg in perfect alignment with hip so I could get a ankle replacement. Everything couldn't have gone any better. Based on my experience, would highly recommend.
I can ski again !! Incredible, both knees at once. Awesome!

I have NEVER been to Dr. as poor as Dr. Talmo. First off the office was a disaster, one of the young ladies was so rude put me in tears. Was referred to him by another Dr. and took 3 months to get an appointment. Waited over two hours to get in to have him talk to me with his back to me. He said "Can't help you with your pain" and walked out. I just sat the amazed. After working in hospitals for 38 years he and staff the WORST!!!

After seeing a specialist for hip, leg, and lower back pain for 8 month and 4 cortisone shots in my lower spine I finally asked for a hip X-ray. I was right, one look at X-ray and I was told I need a hip replacement.. Dr. Talmo is highly regarded in his field and well know by people in my town.. I would definitely / and do refer him to everyone I know and meet.. In my opinion he is the best! He is friendly, experienced, dedicated to his patients and their recovery.

After seeing several other Doctors on Cape Cod for a complicated knee problem ,and getting little help , i was thrilled to find Dr Talmo. He and his wonderful office staff made my knee surgery go without a problem!

Dr Talmo replaced both my hip and knee in 2014 with great success. I recovered from each surgeriy within a few weeks. I cannot recommend him more highly. He is professional and highly competent.

Dr Talmo saved my RT leg from being amputated! I has a MRSA infection that spread to my artificial knee, which already had 2 revisions. My local Doctors were going to amputate but Dr. Talmo agreed to take me back and to make a long story short he did another revesion with a medicacated cement spacer and saved my leg, Thanks Dr Talmo
