.About 15 years ago I had Dr. Launer for a complete knee replacement. I think he may have been fresh out of school. He was marvelous and very fussy. Today I still have that replacement and in all those years never suffered any pain of any sort. He was curtious, polite and explained the whole procedure and how important therapy was to get your leg back in shape. Thank you Dr. Launer and best wishes at Landmark, I'm so glad your back.

He should have sent me to a hand specialist! Almost 6 months ago my wrist broke. Finally I decided to see a hand specialist because I was constantly having sever pain even when he kept telling me your healed and have to heal in up to a year. Well hand specialist said I have torn ligaments and torn carriage! Too late to do easy surgery. May have to have a more difficult surgery...
