Dr. Duke replaced both of my knees at the same time. He thought it was best for me given the shape the knees were in. The surgery went very well and my recovery has been amazing. I am certain that I am progressing so well due to having both replaced. It has allowed me to rehab both equally, without a bad knee interfering. Thank you Dr. Duke and your excellent team and amazing care after the surgery.

Dr. Duke did my hip surgery and totally messed it up. He made the longer leg shorter and used the wrong size parts. Had to have the surgery redone by a different doctor at great expense.

Dr. James Duke and his staff/office help are a well oiled team! Everyone knows exactly what is expected of them and what Dr. Duke requires and follows through the the exact ending. Not only the office staff but also the staff on the hospital floor,,,there is no question as to how and when anything is to be done. Everyone is so well trained in the correct procedures and all turns out GREAT with the surgery. The patient needs to follow their instructions. Therapy personal are also GREAT.

I cannot say enough GOOD things about Dr. Duke. His knowledge, expertise and bedside manner is nothing but the BEST. His office staff is the GREATEST. They are very helpful, friendly and gets any of your questions answered as well as handling any referrals needed. This is definitely the place to go to if you need a hip replacement. That is what I had done and free from all pain from day 1 and did not need any additional pain medicine.

Dr Duke is a miracle man! He not only replaced my knee but straightened it! Due to an injury, I had not had a straight knee in 20 years! Amazing! His bedside manner is off the charts. What a gentleman! Recovery was minimal and you can hardly see my scar. His staff is very supportive. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone!

Dr. Duke and his staff are outstanding. I have had replacement surgery in the past in Boston and this has surpassed that surgical experience. Playing golf within six weeks without pain or discomfort. What else can I say but thank you to Dr. Duke and his great staff. I would recommend Dr. Duke to anyone and everyone.

It would not be possible to exaggerate the level of appreciation for what Dr. Duke and his staff have done for me. I had both knees replaced in 2016 (Jan and Dec) and I have gone from not being able to stand for over 15 minutes to walking over 40 miles per week without pain. I am a former ultra marathon runner, and exercise is a vital part of my life. My knees limit me now in no way. Dr Duke and his staff are wonderful caring people who treated me with the utmost respect and professionalism.

I am 73 years old and prior to surgery I could not walk more than about 25 yards before having to sit down for about 10 minutes (the pain was too much). I had both knees replaced on Dec. 11. I was walking painfree with a walker on Dec. 12. After 2 weeks I was walking with only a cane and did not really need that. At 4 weeks after surgery, I went on a 2 mile walk with my wife (still completely pain free). Dr Duke has given me a new lease on life. I highly recommend Dr. Duke.

I cannot give enough stars and positive reviews that Dr. Duke and his staff truly deserve. He did a total knee replacement and a hip replacement for me and I am so grateful to him – and his wonderful staff – that I can enjoy my life again. Both surgeries went smoothly and I followed all the rehab directions. I never hesitate to recommend Dr. Duke for knee and hip replacements.

As a medical professional myself, I had the opportunity to treat (Physical Therapy) many of Dr. Duke's Patients throughout the years. His knee surgery patients had a much better rehab potential than patients with the same diagnoses from another physician. Their range of motion, strength and functional mobility increased dramatically and patients were able to return home with 90% of their former level of function. In addition, Dr. Duke and his staff are very professional and caring.
