Dr Oakes did my knee replacement and he is the best around. No problems whatsoever, and he followed through in each stage of my recovery. My knee replacement was a ‘special situation’ because of previous surgeries, scar tissue etc. He did a perfect surgery. My mobility is excellent and 5 years out from surgery I’ve had no issues.

A ditto to all the other positive reviews on Dr. Oakes! He truly is the best in all categories. Even sitting in the X-ray room, other patients comment how they came from far corners just for his expertise. I did a lot of homework before choosing a knee surgeon! He did both knees! If I had two more knees, he would be the one! THANK YOU DR. OAKES! And another plus, what doctor do you know who will answer your emails within one day?

Short and sweet . 2hip replacements 09,4-16, The most professional,patient, informed ,doctor I have ever used. He is only as good as his staff, and they are super stars. I was in and out of the hospital in24 hrs. Back golfing in less than 30 days . You will know from the minute you meet him ,he's the guy! I visited 3 other doctors before I decided on Dr Oakes. I've had no complications and truly feel like he gave me my life back . In summation , I never met him before my surgery , I'm UCLA fan.

Total knee replacement at a young age, after injury. Dr. Oakes is/was magnificent. Despite his popularity, he runs mostly on time. Very thorough, gives you his time. Just a great experience.

He did a PERFECT total right hip replacement on me. I was walking without a limp and felt ready to go back to work in 3 weeks (but took the whole 6 weeks). I'm so glad I did my research and had him do my surgery. The hospital experience was A+ as well; the nursing staff was great and explained everything they were giving me and kept me in the loop as well as giving me choices for meds the whole way. I'll be back for my left hip replacement at the end of the year.
