Dr Sassmannshausen did a fantastic job replacing my knee. He is very direct in explaining the procedure and why my knee deteriorated. Very “to the point”. My leg is now straight again and I am walking without a walker or cane at two weeks post surgery. I had minimal anesthesia and woke up with no nausea or ill effects.

I have already recommended Dr. Sassmannshausen to a couple of people. He gives excellent care, explains in terms I can understand and always listens to what you have to say. His staff is very friendly and helpful, too. I've had knee replacement and rotator cuff repair with no problems. I will continue to recommend him to anyone needing his type of care!

Yes. Dr Sass has been totally honest and explained in laymen’s term what would happen and when. His office has this get well loop that has sent me messages almost daily to question what to do and what I should be looking for in changes to my knee. Always asking me if I have any concerns. I have sent a question twice and received and answer quickly. Looking forward to staples coming out this week

Every visit the staff and Dr., has been amazing. There were health issues that caused some issues getting knees replaced as planned, but the Dr., and staff worked with all my other doctors and was always pleasant, helpful. During my stay at the hospital, Dr., did visit each day and explained everything. This office is a very kind, caring group of people.
