This was the second knee replacement that Dr Christensen has done. Both are so much better than before. Dr. Christensen is great at putting worries at ease before surgery.

Best orthopedics dr there is. Has done 4 surgeries on both my knees in the Last 10 years and I've never had one problem. Very nice and very concerned about your well being. Beijing a Christian I am very pleased that he is also and prays for the surgery and my well being. I trust him. I've never been anxious when hes done surgery on me.

Dr. Christiansen corrected a previous botched total knee replacement for me. He is very caring and tries to figure out the problem quickly. It does take some time to get in to see him but it is worth it. He knows what he is doing and I will and have recommended him.

Great experience, done as outpatient surgery in the surgery center. Very good, I was well informed about what was going to happen and what to prepare for. I have not had any issues with the surgery and feel great. Had other issues that the staff (Laura) helped me with and went out of her way to make sure I was taken care of. Would recommend Dr. Christensen to anyone having a hip replacement.

Wonderful! He really takes the time to offer his patients the best care. Would not consider anyone else for hip or knee. His skills are amazing, plus he really demonstrates that he wants his patients to get better!
