      Dr. Jack Farr is a wonderful doctor. I flew to see him from Virginia. He spent over an hour with me which I greatly appreciated. He took time to do a thorough physical exam and took time to take measurements from my x-ray. Dr. Farr also spent time on education and explaining things to me. He is a kind man who seems to really want to help patients that are in pain. Additionally, I appreciate that he was conservative and didn't want to immediately jump into surgery.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Farr II's Care Philosophy

      As a knee subspecialist, my first goal is to understand your personal goals. With these goals in mind, we can review your knee specific diagnosis and formulate a plan that fits your lifestyle. To be able to offer you the latest in knee treatments, I feel it is important to remain current with state of the art techniques by actively teaching and learning from peers, directing our fellowship program, participating in clinical research projects, and publishing in the peer-reviewed literature.
