I've used Dr. Raab 2 times in 17 years for different knee injuries (ACL and Meniscus). He did such an amazing job the first time that I knew to use him the second time for a different knee injury. Amazing work both times!!! I would highly recommend him!

Dr. Raab is an excellent orthopedic surgeon. He has done both of my knees and both surgeries were successful with no complications afterwards.
