RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful Reply I live 10 minutes from numerous big hospitals with numerous orthopedic doctors, several who gave me cortisone and supartz injections. As my condition became worse, I asked each of them to give me his/her evaluation as well as discuss the treatment he/she proposed to give me. I also asked everyone I met who had knee replacements his/her opinion of these doctors. A close friend said, "Dr. Dusek is the only one I would trust." After hearing her opinion and meeting Dr. Dusek, I decided I would drive 1 hour each way to work with him. He did a super job of replacing both knees. The longer distance drive was worth every minute it took. I would recommend him highly. Elaine Abramson, Award-winning Author and Artist – Nov 29, 2019

Excellent. The first treatment on my knee was with Cortizone shots. That worked well for a couple of years. I had a lengthy conference with the doctor, and the advice was full knee replacement. That went quite well. After 10 weeks, I was taking long walks with my wife. Hadn’t done that in years. Life is good

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.

I would highly recommend Dr. Dusek. He has performed both a knee surgery (1997) and has repaired my torn rotator cuff (2007). I would call each of the operations as very successful. Most recently in 2015 he examined my other knee. I thought he was going to recommend doing surgery, but he advised me not to have it done. He gave me a cortisone shot about 6 weeks ago and I now have no pain. When my wife needed elbow surgery he recommended another surgeon with more expertise in that area. 5 Stars+
