I love Dr Dusek and his entire staff. He's successfully replaced both my knees now and I'm doing great. He restored my mobility. They made the entire surgery as easy as possible. I truly felt they all cared for my well being.

Dr. Dusek is a very caring, sharing orthopedic dr. He had operated on my wife a number of years ago and replaced her knees and they both turned out excellent. He has also treated my left knee and that also turned out excellent.
