I had a total knee replacement in Feb 2017 performed by Dr Fletcher and his team. I could not be more pleased with the process and the results. I was up and walking(with a standard walker) within 2 hours after the surgery. I was walking without any assistance within 1 week and returned to playing golf week 10 following surgery. I would highly recommend Dr Fletcher and his team. One key recommendation be diligent following the Physical Therapy program.

Dr. Fletcher is a good surgeon, as long as nothing goes wrong after the surgery. If it does, I suggest going to your primary, Doctor Fletcher only wants to see you if his work is perfect. Also, after surgery, you won't see Dr Fletcher again. You will see his PA. With all the great doctors out there, do your homework before you sign up for surgery.

Doctor Fletcher replaced my hip several years ago (I was 65) and it was a great experience. There were just two small incisions and I was out of the Hospital the next day. I was up and walking within the week and playing golf in a few months. I have no residual problems and it seems as if it was never done. I would highly recommend Doctor Fletcher. I have recommended Doctor to a number of my friends who are considering having surgery.
in Granville, NY |
Dr Fletcher is an excellent surgeon, he replaced my hip a few yrs ago and I recommended him to my sister-in-law who is very happy with him also. I have an app't with him this morning for a recheck.

Very easy to talk to answers all questions never rushes you
in Saratoga County, NY |
Dr. Fletcher did a direct anterior approach total hip replacement on me. My only complaint- I never got to experience anything! I remember bending for the epidural and then waking up in recovery. My hip feels great- well as great as it should right after surgery. And spent one night in the hospital, passed OT and PT with flying colors and was headed out the door by 10am. Would recommend Dr. Fletcher to anybody
