Partial knee replacement in June 2016. Recovery was much faster than I expected. Met all by PT goals by the 2nd week and exceeded them by the 3 week after surgery. Went off pain med oxycodone with in the first week after the surgery [Tylenol was more than enough to relieve what little pain I had]. I would highly recommend Dr Bowers [ and his staff] and Meriter Hospital at all levels of the procedures that occurred.

Dr. Bowers has replaced both my knees (left, 2012; right, 2016) He is an excellent surgeon and a very knowledgeable and caring person. He and I agreed to be very conservative with my first knee, spending 2 years working through the options for relief before deciding to do the full replacement. That surgery went VERY well and I was rehabbed at home and on an outpatient basis with GREAT results. This second replacement a week ago went smoothly as well and I am already back to an astonishing level
