I was seen right on time and am so grateful for the kindness and care that I received. After quickly learning my issue wasn't in his wheel house he and his administration spent about 15 minutes trying to find a colleague or other provider to help. He made me a quick appointment through the referring clinic that I headed to and was treated right away. I could not recommend him more...he truly cares!

I shattered my tibial plateau into about 6 pieces 22 years ago. Dr Tischenko preformed my surgery at John Muir Hospital wherevi worked as an orthopedic nurse. He did such a fantastic job that I am still pain free and move and walk without any problems. I highly recommend dr Tischenko!!

Dr Tischenko replaced my severely damaged right knee a year ago. The results are truly truly delightful!. The transition from painfully limping to comfortably walking, working and exercising is remarkable. I was back exercising and driving in about a month. The scar is barely visible.

Dr. Tischenko is very talented and also kind, communicative and not in a rush for surgery. We tried several rounds of shots and physical therapy before we together agreed it was time for a total knee replacement. He explained what I could expect from the day of surgery as well as what to expect with my recovery. It was not an easy surgery, but completely successful. I was in pain with every step for before surgery and less than a year later I am pain free and can walk over 6 miles with no issues
