What People Say About Dr. Erick Kawakita, MD
Reply
His knee replacement procedure avoids cutting muscle/ligaments shortening recovery time and minimizing post surgery pain. He was trained by the surgeon who developed the procedure. Most knee surgeons are not trained in this new procedure. I have experienced NO significant pain including when I first walked on the day of surgery. Stairs were painless on third day following surgery. Excellent attention to prep before surgery and after. His statistics are outstanding. He is a man of precision.
