I had a complicated hip replacement that required extensive hardware that had been in place for 23 years. Dr. Knesek was recommended as a joint specialist from another orthopedic surgeon. After surgery my legs are finally same length and properly aligned. Dr. Knesek, his PA Collin and the rest of the staff were professional, friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend Dr. Knesek.

I was referred to Dr. Knesek for a revision of a total knee replacement. I obtained an appointment with a minimal wait time. He took extra precautions because I had a post operative infection on 2 previous knee replacements. Dr. Knesek explained everything and answered all mine and my husband’s questions. My pain was very well controlled after surgery and throughout recovery. Dr. Knesek and his staff answered calls quickly post op when I had a concerns. Office staff friendly and professional

Just had my knee replaced after Dr. Knesek put it in crooked he then packed it with more cement to compensate. My knee was tremendously unstable and every time I went there I would get new exrays and he would tell me nothing was wrong. I went to 3 other surgeons that all agreed it was in crooked. Outstanding support staff but him personally was very poor. I was in tremendous pain and he did nothing but inject me. No follow up phone calls to see how I was doing. Would NOT recommend him.

Had hip surgery 9/2018. My recovery had been quick. At 6 weeks 90% mobility back. I Expect 100% at 3 months. My physical therapist says Dr Knesek did a great job He is caring and asks for questions and answers same. His staff is equally as caring the PA, Dr Moore and Pre Op surgical staff Will definitely return if other orthopedic surgery required in the future

I had swelling/pain around my kneecap and stiffness above and below my knee for a couple of months before I finally made an appointment... which I did solely based on Dr. Knesek's previous reviews. I'm so glad I did! After my x-ray, Dr. Knesek took his time to explain the image on the screen, and after examining my knee, he gave his diagnosis and how he was going to treat it...which he began immediately. He was very thorough and patient.. and wanted to make sure I was comfortable. Great Doc!

Dr. Knesek was recommended by two physicians, one from DMC, one from Hurley. He is professionally competent and an excellent communicator, taking time to address your concerns. His PA, colleagues , and staff in both locations all made me feel well cared for. With a total hip arthroplasty behind me he will be my first choice for orthopedic needs in the future.

Dr. Knesek spent a considerable amount of time with me explaining my knee's condition and why pt was necessary. I did not tell him during my initial visit that I was there for a second opinion for an already scheduled knee replacement surgery with another doctor at another hospital. How thankful I am to have avoided unnecessary surgery and to know that Dr. Knesek is not hurried with my questions and concerns.. I put my cane away and went back to working on walking.

Easy to get in contact with. Understands lifestyle issues and that the end result of treatment is quality of life. Never pushed products or procedures. Very knowledgeable but talks layman terms, never down to patient. Honest with his prognosis on recovery and recovery issues.

Dr Knesek is professional, extremely kind and has immeasurable knowledge and skill. He has a terrific bedside manner whether in office or in hospital. We are 100% confident and fortunate to have him care for son twice in the last year and a half. He and his staff make potentially complex, scary situations very simple and comfortable.

Dr Knesek is an amazing surgeon and a warm caring person. I am in the hospital post op day 1 after breaking my leg skiing. I went from pain 9 yesterday to 0 this morning. I have so much gratitude for Dr Knesek and the whole experience here at Huron valley hospital. Highest recommendation from me.

I have had 7 surgeries on both my knees during the last 10 years. The 7th surgery was a right knee revision performed my Dr. Knesek and his team. The right knee I had replaced in 2014 came loose and I was referred to Dr. Knesek by my orthopedic doctor. I am now pain free, walking with no limp, and feel better than I have in years thanks to this team of doctors. This new knee bends better than my left knee! If you are having problems, this is the team you want to go and see!

I selected Dr. David Knesek, DO to perform my right knee replacement surgery and to guide me through the post surgery physical therapy process. Dr. Knesek was extremely professional and highly knowledgeable during my entire knee replacement process. Dr. Knesek took all the time I needed to have very important matters discussed and important questions answered. Dr. Knesek provided all of his services with a very personal approach, helping me feel comfortable with all of his recommendations.

From thew initial office visit and examination the level of professionalism and communication was outstanding. The surgery and debrief with my wife and I relieved any anxiety that we had following anterior hip replacement. As much pain as I was in prior to surgery was eliminated by the minimal pain afterwards. It's been six weeks since surgery and I'm feeling almost 100% mobility. Dr. Knesek, his PA Colin Zaporski his staffs at HVGS Hospital and at the DMC all deserve an A+

Dr Knesek takes his time during your office visit and is never in a hurry. He explains all options and treatments available and lets you make the decision. After trying cortisone shots, we decided knee replacement was the best option. Dr Knesek did total knee replacement on both knees within 5 weeks using Makoplasty the results are life changing. I can’t explain how happy I am. I would also like to thank his PA Colin Zaporski for his time and attention to my needs. These Guys are the BEST!!
