I had a very positive experience with Dr. Nicholson as my surgeon. He was honest with me regarding treatment options including non-surgical. After beginning with the more conservative route with no improvement, he and his team were supportive of my desire to explore the surgical route. I am now 4 weeks post-op and am very pleased with the outcome and prognosis for the future. Thanks you, Dr. Nicholson, Celina (x-ray), Victoria, Sumera and PA Laney!

I had a bad fall and broke my right kneecap. Dr. Nicholson saw me right away after my accident., and he performed the surgery in less than a week. He was honest with me about my recovery, took time to explain the recovery process, and he answered every question that I had about what to expect and the time frame. I chose to do my physical therapy at his office, and I can't say enough about the therapists, Rachael and Jenny. They are excellent, always on time, and have me liking therapy!

Saw him for a torn meniscus. Dr Nicholson performed a menisectomy and did an excellent job. He explained my situation before surgery and then meet me post op to review photos during surgery and what he performed. If you need arthroscopic knee surgery this is your guy.

Dr. Nicholson performed ACL reconstruction surgery and also repaired my torn meniscus. Pre-surgery he was very kind and knowledgable, providing me with as much information about the process as I could have desired. The surgery went extremely well and Dr. Nicholson has a meticulous physical therapy regime that is completed in house. I was running at 3 months and now 6 months out I am back at full activity with no pain. I could not be more pleased with my progress and his help.
