Patient Comments (19)

Dr. Sassmannshausen takes time to explain what is happening and doesn't make you feel like he needs to get to the next patient. He has good bedside manner and is very good at making sure you understand your condition. Highly recommend him.

I was extremely satisfied with the out come of my surgery. The recovery process is about 50% easier than I had anticipated. So very happy it's over. I won't even be able to see the scars in just a short amount of time. Thank you for a fine job!

Dr Sassmannshausen is an excellent orthopedic surgeon. His explanations regarding the knee replacement procedure was thorough and he has kept me and my family informed of necessary treatment for the healing of my knee. I would recommend him not only for his surgical skills but the way he relates...more

They performed an amazing surgery with very little discomfort after. In fact there wasn’t any need for any pain medication following the surgery.
