      Three years ago I had my knee replaced, and I was given my life back. I was able to continue practicing as an ARNP. I just had the other knee replaced two weeks ago. Dr. Duke and all his staff are awesome. I look forward now to a fulfilling retirement, experiencing all the amenities at OTOW. Thank you Dr. Duke.

      I was diagnosed with a torn meniscus in my right knee and Dr. Duke was recommended as a very competent and experienced orthopedic surgeon. I made an appointment, brought my recent xray and MRI, and ended up seeing Dr. Duke's female PA who drained the fluid from my knee, gave me a cortisone shot and told me to come back in 2 weeks if I had no relief. Well, duh, a tear in the meniscus is a physical injury, not like a headache. I went to another orthopedic doctor who said I needed a knee replace

      I can't say enough about how great everything went with my hip replacement. The home visits from the nursing staff and the PT was great.

      I had my left hip replaced by Dr. Duke three weeks ago and everything went just the way Dr. Duke told me. When i saw him in his office to set up the surgery he explained everything he was going to do. His concern about me, made me feel like I had just found a new friend. I cannot say enough about his office staff. As soon as you sign in they make you feel comfortable and welcome. Each and everyone of his staff is friendly and caring. I would recommend him 100 percent.

      I had my left knee replaced one year ago by Dr. Duke. I was quite pleased first , by the staff in his office who treated me with kind, caring respect. I feel Dr. Duke specializes in making sure the risks for infection are extremely minimal. That was very important to me. The staff and Dr. Duke gave me specific directions to prepare for the surgery and post surgery. I am pain free in the left knee. I credit Dr. Duke and his staff for a wonderful experience!

      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. Duke says...

      I am a Florida native who grew up in Clearwater. I'm a diehard Gator who went to The University of Florida for undergrad, medical school, and residency training before moving to Ocala, FL in 1991. I married my best friend, Pam, 31 years ago and we have two fantastic daughters. The oldest has our 3 year old grandson (apple of our eye) and we're expecting a granddaughter in October. When not working or being a Grandpa, I try to play some golf and tennis, and attend as many Gator sporting events as I can.
