I have already recommended a family member to Dr. Phelps, and he is scheduling knee replacement surgery in August. I personally had total knee replacement surgery on both of my knees, with 6 weeks between the surgeries. I am totally satisfied with the complete experience! When the bandage was taken off after 3 weeks, the scarring was extremely minimal. Recovery, healing, therapy and return to better than normal was fantastic! I highly recommend him, even if the wait time to surgery is long.

Broke my ankle and Dr Phelps was able to see me the next day. Surgery scheduled for the next week. The PA, Jose is the best. Have nothing but great things to say about Dr Phelps.

Had my right knee replaced on 10/18/2016. Was sent home on 10/20/2016. Have had very little pain was completely off of all pain meds. on 10/22/2016. Had PT 3 times a week for 4 weeks. Today is 5 weeks post op. Walking with a cane but do not think I need it. I get very little if any pain when doing my exercise. Is a little stiff but very little when I first get out of bed in the AM. Like I said I am 5 weeks post op today and my range of motion is at 120 deg. Dr. Phelps is the best!!!!!

Dr. Phelps is a very caring and compassionate Doctor, while also being very professional, knowedable, and experienced. I had an anterior tissue sparing total hip replacement after having had 2 previous arthroscopic hip surgeries several years before, performed by other physicians. Following surger I have had very little pain, less actually than following arthroscopic surgery. I was able to stand and walk with a walker the same day surgery was performed.

Dr. Phelps is very personable and compassionate and this is so important when one faces a scary surgery.

I'm a year out from wrist surgery Feb. 2015. Dr Phelps and the out patient staff at Baptist Hospital on Stone Oak Pkwy were outstanding. I had heard horror stories from others that had plates put in their wrists. Mine has healed perfectly, no pain and my range of motion about 99%. The scar on my wrist is negligible. We all say thank you after such an ordeal to our Doctors and Nurses, but, in my case, I'm beyond thrilled and thank you is not enough! Highly recommend.
