I recently had my meniscus tears repaired. I am 6 days out and doing great. I did not need any pain medication. I highly recommend the ice machine they offer before the surgery as it really helps. You will need to be sure to have lots of extra ice on hand after the surgery as I went trough 15 lbs a day. All of the staff is very friendly and I have never waited more than 10 mins past my appt time so far. The PA’s are excellent as well.

Dr Guttentag did both of my knees. I had total knee replacement. I found him to be very Frank and to the point. He wanting me to lose some weight and to go to liquiadema therapy to decrease the ademia in my legs. Dr Guttentag has a protocol which he follows closely. I did what he told me to do, I had no issues and my surgery went well. What an excellent job he did. I highly recommend him.

I had appointments with a couple of Orthopedic doctors in my search for my knee issues and am so thankful I chose Dr. Guttentag. He is very thorough, detailed and professional. He is very busy and I suggest making a list of questions you may have, as he will take the time to answer them. He has an excellent team in the office and surgery. Dr. G performed a partial knee replacement on left knee in May and the right knee in July.

Had total knee replacement in April 2017. Dr. Guttentag is a great surgeon and his staff is very responsive and organized. Each step was covered with written information and all questions answered by staff. It is three months out and I feel really good. Very happy I had this done with Dr. Guttentag as my surgeon. I highly recommend Dr. Guttentag for TKR.

I can't say enough great things about Dr G. He did a partial knee replacement for me. I am now pain free. I wasn't afraid at all, everything was a matter of fact, therapy was tough, but good. I was back to work in about 3 weeks. He's your man if you need this procedure done!

Dr Guttentag and his staff were the absolute best!!!! Everyone at FMC was great. Dr Guttentag performed my knee surgery and i only missed 3 days from work with very little pain meds. This is due to the "special" ice cooler that he and his staff recommended. The best $150 i ever spent!!! I have told anyone who will listen to chose him and FMC for any and all procedures. I can't thank him or the staff enough!!! Aleks S.

I continue to be very impressed with the care that I have received from Dr. Guttentag aand his associates. I had a total knee replacement. It is the hardest thing that I have ever been through.. I was impressed with the education that I received about what I was going to be going through. I was also impressed with the post-op process. I was released from the hospital on Saturday and my first in home physical therapy was on Sunday. I would recommend him, unequivocally.

A few weeks ago I could barely walk because of a total knee replacement I had done in Michigan in 2015 failed completely. I was referred to Dr. Guttentag. After reviewing X-rays and discussing my options surgery was scheduled. Dr. Guttentag said to me at my first appointment "We are going to take good care of you". And he did! Now almost four weeks after surgery I am walking normal again! Thank you Dr. Guttentag and your entire caring staff. You are all the best!

Had a total knee replacement in November, back on my bicycle by December and looking forward to my left knee replacement in July. Dr. Guttentag is pleasant, extremely knowledgeable, efficient and proficient. Pain management was handled extremely well, I never had real pain, just soreness. The entire process was well managed, from office visits to rehab. Highly recommend.
