Five weeks ago, I received a partial knee replacement and today, except for some slight expected swelling and occasional stiffness, it feels very much normal and like my own. I'm also now walking 2-miles a day or more without pain. I am convinced that the success I’ve experienced is because of the skill and experience of my surgeon (Dr. Hockman), all the very professional staff, and the up-to-date facilities at The Columbia Orthopedic Group.

I couldn't have asked for any better care, from the initial appt. to schedule the surgery to the 6 week post op appt. I brought a list of questions to the first appt and he answered all of them before I had the chance to ask. He took his time to explain the entire procedure, I left that appt with total respect for Dr. Hickman and knew I would be in good hands. Post op went well, no problems. Its been 7 weeks and the scar is almost invisible. I couldn't be happier!

Dr. Hochman listened to me and really tried to understand my history and health issues. I went to the appointment very discouraged and left feeling as if there is hope. His expertise was top notch. Very appreciative.
