      I went in for my knee. Dr. Nelson made me feel comfortable with the situation I had , and had a great understanding of where I wanted to be and what I wanted to do after he told me I tore my acl. Honestly I never feel out surveys. Like. On anything! But I would refer him to anyone . Thank you dr. Nelson. You and your team.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
