Love doc. Wait too long.

Exceeds expectations in all areas for my total knee replacement.
in Oregon City, OR |
My fully satisfactory result would be reason enough, but when I add Dr. Ballard's patient willingness to explain all the moving parts of a total hip replacement, PLUS his high energy and confidence, I would not consider going anywhere else for my orthopedic needs. Thank you, Dr. Ballard!

Dr Ballard is very positive and kind. He is extremely good at knee replacement. I would recommend him in a heart beat.
in Beaverton, Oregon |
Dr Ballard is caring and compassionate. My first impression meeting him was that he and his PA Michael know what they are doing. It helped me feel confident going into a total knee knee replacement. Most notable was my first post-op meeting. The degree of compassion that he showed towards me and my unique situation brought me to tears. I really felt that he understood me and would stand with me through my healing process. I'm 4 mo out and he and his staff have all been fantastic.

Total knee replacement. Total knee flexion and extension within 3 weeks. Great job.
in Bend, OR |
Dr. Ballard made sure I was aware of what the compete hip replacement was about and too the time to explain it all so I could make an informed decision. He is very caring and genuine hero in my book. He comes highly recommended you won't be sorry. Best thing ever my pain is so much better and I have my life back after 17 years. Thank you Dr. Ballard!
