      I had both knees replaced 6 weeks apart and had seen 5 other Drs.for their opinions and all of them concurred that that my knees were so bad and stiff not to expect to bend them over 90 degrees. Dr.Rutherford did an amazing job on both knees and I have referred over a dozen friends with the same great outcome

      Why Does Experience Matter?
