Dr Fisher is very compassionate and understands what the patient is going through. He has an excellent beside manner and is an awesome surgeon. I had bi-lateral knee replacement and I had absolutely no problems. I was literally back up and walking the day after surgery. My wife said I was walking better right after surgery than I was when we walked into the hospital.
