Without reservation, I highly recommend Dr. Christensen and his staff! It is reassuring to have a doctor hold your hand and pray specifically for you just before he does surgery! From my very first emergency appointment, through surgery and follow-up I’ve had exemplary care! Everyone in Dr. Christensen’s office cared about me! Matt was my Physician Assistant, he is amazing ! Brittany and Tammy Fugate helped to make my knee replacement a positive experience!!! I am Thankful!

I had hip replacement surgery more than three years ago and Dr Christensen was the surgeon. Dr Christensen and his staff pronounced me well so I was released to come back in five years. I've been back several times because of the pain, often severe pain, but according to him the X-rays showed my replacement to be perfect and he could find nothing wrong. So this is where I am today with continued pain.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH DR. CHRISTENSEN WAS TERRIFIC. I HAD RIGHT HIP REPLACEMENT SURGERY. HE WAS VERY PROFESSIONAL, CORDIAL AND CARING. HIS APPROACH IS FRONTAL ON THE HIP/LEG AREA. IT HAS BEEN SIX WEEKS AND I AM WALKING HALF A MILE AND DOING FIFTY PUSH-UPS IN SETS OF TEN. ALL THE STAFF THAT I CAME IN CONTACT WITH WERE JUST GREAT. FRIENDLY, HELPFUL AND PROFESSIONAL. I WOULD CERTAINLY RECOMMEND DR. CHRISTENSEN TO ANYONE REQUIRING THIS TYPE OF SURGERY. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO THE ENTIRE BGO OFFICE.

Dr. Christensen did a hip replacement for me in 2006 and bilateral knee replacement on 4/28/17. Today is 6/30/17 and I am done with therapy and doing most anything I want. I can't say enough good things about his work and I am telling everybody I know.

Don't waste your time. In my 60 years this was the worse experience ever. In six month's I was able to talk to him for ten minutes. The only thing you get out of his P.A. is come back in three months. I wouldn't take my worst enemy or my dog there. Tim Johnson Mount Sterling Ky

Dr. Christiansen really gave me a new lease on life when he performed my total knee replacement. I am now able to do so many things I love to do but thought were lost to me.

Dr. Christianson is an excellent doctor that explains medical issues in very understandable terms...He has an excellent bedside manner and seems to be genuinely interested in the well being of his patients...He replaced my left hip 5 years ago and I have had no problems associated with that surgery...

I have a bad airway and he took that into consideration and made sure he was very carrful with the problem and done a great job. As the partial knee replacement I think he is the very best so there is no point in looking any further. When the best is here. I had home therapy through them and he was better then going to get out and going anywhere for therapy if you live in pulaski county. It's through VNA and Steven done mine. My whole from start to finish was wonderful. I would recommend him and
