I have had two knee replacement performed by Dr. Starch with a three year differences between each surgery. I cannot say enough good things and how happy I am about the outcome of my surgeries. I was walking bone on bone and experienced horrible pain in both of my knees. It took awhile before I convinced myself to see him and the options that where available to me. I am now pain free in both of my knees and enjoying life.
