Got 2nd opinion. massive infection in knee and totally unstable in all directions. have to have surgery to get rid of potentially life threatening infection, then a whole new knee replacement.

So let's start off by saying this "doctor" has the worst bedside manner I have had 4 surgeries on my right knee one of which was a bone tendon bone autograph and 2 on the left knee one of which was a total knee replacement. On my 2 week follow up after knee replacement he stated that he wanted to see my ROM and quickly without warning bent my knee so far that he literally put me into tears. My father asked what's wrong and I said I think he screwed up my knee. been almost 2 years everyday pain

We went there with already knowing the issue. Athritis in the knee. Every 2 monthes it flames up. For aproximatly 2 weeks. Dr said once it flames up. Come in for cortozone shot. Just walk on in. Well out of the fact it takes one hour to get there. I decided to call ahead. Not a good experience. No way to get a live person. So after 2 days trying to get ahold of them. We get a call back. Wanting us to wait a week. For a oppointment. When informed the doctor wanted me to just walk in.

Great dr! Was very good and told me everything I should expect. Had a rod inserted into my tibia. I was terrified but he made me feel comfortable with the decision and everything went Great! I don't even feel like I had surgery a year ago.

Dr. Zeiger thought of everything I would need to have a positive outcome of my hip replacement and his staff scheduled all of the associated appointments for tests and follow-up. I had an outstanding experience!

Dr Zieger performed 3 surgeries on my teenage daughter, for a torn meniscus, in a matter of 12 months. According to 3 other surgeons, he should never have done more than 1. I trusted him and he abused his power. Now my daughter has to endure a meniscus transplant because he left her with very little. She has been in constant pain for at least 3 years. He assured me that he had her best interest at heart. I believe his bank account was the only best interest he had.
