I requested Dr. Cameron because of a friend's recommendation. He is an excellent surgeon. My recovery from hip replacement surgery has gone very well. He is a kind and considerate doctor. I don't mind waiting for him, because I know when he gets to me, he will be thorough and give me the necessary time that I need.

I had my left hip replaced on 3/12/2020. Dr Cameron did my right hip in 2019, and as always he did a fantastic surgery. Dr Cameron replaced both my husbands knees and we both are doing great. Dr Cameron is a great surgeon and we recommend highly, he has a great personality and very knowledgeable and caring. The hospital at Patewood is a wonderful place and always very clean and the staff is very courteous. wonderful experience for a surgery.

I cannot say enough about my experience with hip replacement surgery. Dr. Cameron is very professional and knowledgeable concerning his craft. After a short time, I was walking without pain and getting back to my usual activities. And he is very quick to address any issues, should they arise.

I chose Dr. Cameron after a friend had a total knee replacement with fantastic results. Less than 10 weeks out from my own and I am nearly pain free and can see the goal. Dr. Cameron gives you the information and leaves the decision to you without pushing you to a conclusion. The whole process was as good as possibly be, and the doctor's assistant and scheduler Jennifer was a great resource and quickly answered all my questions or needs. I can't recommend Doc Cameron enough. Thanks!

I had a right total knee replacement in October 2019 with Dr Cameron. He was very patient and listened to my concerns regarding pain control. Hopefully I'll never have to have a knee replacement to the left side. But if I did I would certainly go back and have him to the surgery.

I had a knee replacement in 2011 and refused the needed surgery for the other knee until I heard about Dr. Cameron. He listened to my issues and provided the understanding and support that I needed. The surgery was successful and I have just completed 2 month of rehab with awesome results. I understand that surgical pain is different from the rehab pain associated with excessive scar tissue development which most people do not have. I am on my way to a full recovery and able to walk and sleep without knee pain.

I had a great experience with Dr. Cameron in his office as well as his team in the surgery room. I couldn't have thought that was possible. I am very pleased and would recommend Dr. Cameron. Note, if I ever need knee replacement; Dr. Cameron would be who I would call.

This is my 2nd TKA surgery with Cr. Cameron. While there were some complications this time around and recovery was a bit more intense, everything was just as professional, friendly, informative, and genuinely concerned for my welfare as the first time around. Only wish I had a 3rd knee he could replace. He is THE surgeon to see if you need a partial or total knee replacement. Best part is having ATI across the hall for PT sessions at Patewood.

Dr Cameron instills confidence. Right from the first appointment I had with him, I quickly got the feeling that he knew what he was doing. Clear explanations of why my hip replacement was inevitable and what the surgery process would be like. And the results have been spectacular; pain free for the first time in three years! As I write this, I am nine weeks post surgery and have resumed all my normal activities, tho I am very cautious and aware of my surroundings at all times. I would unhesitatingly recommend Dr. Cameron to anyone looking at hip replacement. And I'm sure your response would be like mine: "why did I wait so long?"

I had a total knee replacement on August 28, 2019. I experienced the normal pain and stiffness after surgery and during physical therapy, but 11 weeks I am finally able to do the things I enjoy with very little pain. Dr. Cameron and his staff are very caring and professional.

Dr. Cameron and his staff have been very professional and easy to talk with all through my process. I had a total left knee replacement on August 26, 2019 and this week finishing 10 weeks of physical therapy and all is well. I've had no complications and with the exception of a little pain still when I stand up after sitting and going up stairs, all is well. I would highly recommend Dr. Cameron for knee replacement surgery!!
