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.

Dr. Fisher says...

I have performed over 14,000 hip and knee replacements in my career thus far, including primary and complex primary and revision procedures.  I practice in an Orthopedic Specialty hospital where we can provide high quality care in a patient and family friendly environment.  The conditions I treat are generally degenerative conditions of the hip and knee from arthritis, trauma, or systemic illnesses that can affect those joints.

Dr. Fisher says...

The procedures I perform include primary total hip and knee replacements, unicompartmental knee replacements, and revisions of these procedures.  I have patients referred from all over the Midwest and have a team of allied health care providers that help me provide high quality service to these patients.
