Dr.Otterberg gave me a new right knee that enables me to stand tall again and walk without grimacing in pain with every step! He is very professional and explains every procedure thoroughly and is happy to take time with his patients. He has a great bedside manner and he has a great sense of humor. He went out of his way to take really good care of me! When I need any other surgery for my old bones this will be the Dr. I call and know that I'll be in great hands with Dr.O and his staff! Thanks
