My knee replacement with Dr. El-Yussif couldn't have gone any better. I was nervous about having this surgery but now I'm so happy I did. Any concerns or questions I had through this experience were answered by Dr El-Yussif, Dave or the staff. No more pain and I got my motion and life back.

He’s very patient and caring. Especially since I’ve had insurance issues, on my end, not the office. He’s very knowledgeable and I trust his opinion regarding my knee injury. I highly recommend him and his office.

Dr. El-Yussif did a revision of my left knee February 26, 2018. The original appliance, done in 2013 by a surgeon in Fl had failed (manufacturer defect). I have never felt better, there’s been some “normal” complications that go along with this type of surgery and Dr. El-Yussif and his staff have been there along the way to help get me on my feet. His assistant, Dr. David Slapyznski is also great! The office staff is friendly and helpful as well! Would highly recommend Dr. El-Yussif!

If you need the best in the bussiness on a prossional and on a personal level, go see Dr. El-Yussif. Let me say the only mistake you could make is to NOT, repeat is to NOT SEEK OUT Dr. El-Yussif. Because of his abilities, technical knowledge, and perfect skills as a surgeon, we are once again a fully functioning NON- wheel chair bound person. Others turned us away stating they could NOT help to the point of being fully functional. Well he did it and we are extremely thankful.

Dr. El Yousif replaced my left knee in December ‘17. I could not have been more pleased with my results. I was up walking almost immediately after recovery and rehabbed quickly with very little pain. I would highly recommend Dr. El Yousif.

Doctor Eddie El-Yussif replaced my right knee in February of 2017. I had suffered with pain and very low ROM for many years from a fall at work around 1985. Since my replacement I am back to normal with no pain and much better ROM. I have met with other knee replacement recipients of different doctors that had serious issues after their operations. Some people have had as many as three follow up operations to correct various issues with their new knee. I highly recommend Dr. EL-Yussif.

Dr. El-Yussif is an incredible Doctor! He is the third Orthopedic Surgeon that I have seen, and the last! He is very personable and takes time to explain procedures. He answers questions and takes his time with his patients. I feel very well cared for in his office. His injections are the smoothest in the business, and I have had numerous injections through the years. He operated on my knee and my recovery was fast. He is a top notch surgeon and I highly recommend him! Great office staff as well

I'm so impressed with Dr. El-Yussif, David, his PA and the staff at their offices. My hip replacement surgery was very successful. I have not had any pain. What I really appreciate is how organized the process was in setting up the class, the surgery and follow-up. Big thanks to Shirley! You saved me lots of time and worry by making sure all my ducks were in a row. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. EL-Yussif.

I had a hip replacement with Dr. El-Yussif and he was wonderful! He answered all of my questions and made me feel very comfortable. He did such a good job that I hardly had any pain and I was able to go home the next day. I would recommend him to anybody, he is an amazing surgeon.

When I meet Dr. El- Yussif he was performing a seminar on people with arthritis. I went up to him and asked if I was to young for a knee replacement he looked at me and said pain knows no age. Dr. El-Yussif has preformed partial knee replacments on both of my knees and with each surgery has shown me great care. Flowers in my room, office visits when needed at a moments notice, and showed genuine concern for my well being. Him and his team are the utmost professional people I have worked with.

Explained everything well. Left the discussion up to me for when I was physically and mentally ready to have knee replacement. Never had surgery or even a hospital stay before so I was not ready to hear I needed a knee replacement. He honestly told me it was up to me to put off for as long as I could stand the discomfort then come back when I was ready. After 2 months of physical therapy to see if that would help (it didn't), I was ready for surgery. Everything went as he explained and planned.
