Patient Comments (1)
in Evanston, IL |
I consulted with Dr. Palutsis for several years regarding deteriorating knees. At the appropriate times he completed full knee replacements. Over the years he listened to my concerns and provided straight answers regarding non-surgical options. The outcomes for both knees have exceeded my expectations. I am extremely thankful for his surgical skills and ongoing support.
