Dr. Cameron is one of the best physicians I have encountered in my lifetime. He clearly explained the ramifications of my arthritic hip and kindly and patiently answered my long list of questions. Once I decided on hip replacement surgery, the process unfolded smoothly. I felt well-prepared going into surgery, and six hours after being wheeled into the operating room, I was walking down the hall with my new hip (with a walker and with a PT by my side!) My recovery and rehab were far easier than I had anticipated, and I attribute much of that to his surgical skills and follow-up. The entire team at Steadman Hawkins and Patewood Hospital were helpful and accommodating. Dr. Cameron is an exceptional surgeon, and I highly recommend him.

Diane B – Jun 28, 2021
I've been a patient of Dr. Cameron for awhile. He has always been honest with me and has helped me get to where total hip replacement could be achieved with as little to no health issues. I am a diabetic and am overweight. I had surgery April 19, 2021 and here I am 9 weeks later in better health and little to no pain. My hip was completely wore out and the pain was bad. Other Orthopedics I went to lied to my face to keep from doing anything for me. But, Dr. Cameron and his wonderful, caring and professional staff helped me every step of the way. He came highly recommended and I am highly recommending him to anyone with hip issues. He's been there with answers and help. I can't express how much better my life is now. I do tend at times to do more than I should but, with a little time with my leg elevated and an ice pack I'm back to no pain or discomfort. I haven't had a pain pill in weeks and before I was taking them to live from day to day. Thank you so much Dr. Cameron and staff.

All I can say, is my first of two knee replacements was PERFECT! To have a straight leg with NO pain is unbelievable. Could not be more pleased with Dr. Cameron, his staff, and the hospital staff of PRISMA at Patewood. Back for round two soon.

I had my first knee replacement with Dr. Cameron in 2018. Had my second knee replacement March 2021. I now have a perfectly matched pair. Staff, hospital and Dr. Cameron stellar. ATI staff impressed with 120 degree bend at first therapy session. Had 2 sisters-in-law and brother-in-law have knees replaced by supposedly world famous doctors in Chicago. Their recoveries from surgery, medicines and physical therapies all too way longer than mine. Grateful for the great care I received.

Left hip replacement surgery was great from diagnosis to surgery to therapy. Joint camp set the table well. Night nurse did not know how to lengthen the hospital bed. (Not the drs. fault) ATI therapy was great segue back to real life.

Jimmy – May 26, 2021
Dr. Cameron is very calm and knowledgeable. He is always willing to answer all questions and concerns you might have. My knee surgery was perfect, but my skin had a strange reaction to something. I was concerned so Dr. Cameron took extra care with me and my knee to make sure he watched me very closely to monitor the knee to make sure it continued to heel properly. He was always concerned about his patients having severe pain. Of course, you will have some pain, but he made sure it was always under control. I really appreciated all of his concern and care he gave me. He is an excellent surgeon and I would recommend him to anyone. I greatly appreciate everything he did for me. Thank you, Dr. Cameron

I recommend fully Dr. Cameron to Family and Friends. I felt by the first visit that I'm in the right Hands. He was patient with me to explain my health situation and the options I would have. At least it was only one left. I'm thankful he took my concerns and fear up front of the Surgery. Ten weeks now after surgery I'm happy how much mobility I gained. I'm able to walk without limping what I did several years. I enjoy to workout without regretting it with a lot of pain. Thank you All where helped to get me Straight again. Be safe.

Dr. Cameron performed a Total Knee Replacement (TKR) on my left knee. I believe that he (and any participating associates) did this surgery as well as it could possibly be done. The communication by Dr. Cameron and his associates hss been excellent at all times, including their prompt responses to my few questions submitted on MyChart.

I had right hip replacement Nov 2020 at the age of 61. Dr. Cameron is the best!! From the initial visit to surgery follow up, he & his team are awesome. He has a way of putting you at ease and ensuring that you know what to expect. I have had very little discomfort and hardly ANY pain, which attest to the fact that he is obviously a very skilled surgeon! My recovery has been amazing & I highly recommend him.

Dr. Cameron and his staff are amazing. I highly recommend Dr. Cameron as a surgeon. From the initial visit to surgery follow up, the team was patient and compassionate. Dr. Cameron fully explained the surgical procedure at the initial visit. His comforting demeanor before surgery was reassuring. The surgery and post op instructions were thorough and explicitly addressed how to handle any discomfort after surgery. Jennifer, provided a positive communication venue for questions, support, and advice.
