Thank you for your feedback. It's an orthopedics Catch-22: A high BMI puts excess pressure on weight-bearing joints, so heavier people are more likely to need joint replacement. These patients face more risk from surgery, get less improvement and have higher complication rates than normal-weight patients. Dr. Garlick encourages patients to lose weight to improve their health and obtain better surgical results. We apologize that your husband's experience fell short of your expectations.

I switched from the very popular Dr. Lyons to Dr. Garlick. He is wonderful. I broke my right knee cap in many pieces. He managed to salvage a few of those pieces and now it is good as new. Love him!
