Dr Contreras should be called our favorite knee surgeon! He has repaired and replaced both knees for my husband and just recently replaced my left knee. His experience and consideration is consistent and totally reassuring. Though I did consult a second surgeon early on, I am totally satisfied with the process and care given by Dr. Contreras as was my primary care Dr. Have already directed another close friend to him.

This visit was to begin the 3 shot joint fluid treatment to my two knees. This is the fifth year of Orthovisc and Cortisone treatments via Dr. Contreras. He always is professional about what he is administering and doesn't waste time. Very responsive to my questions about knee replacement surgery and explained what to expect. Made me feel comfortable about the procedure and confident that the surgery would be successful.
