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.

Thank you for a wonderful experiennce. I had my first appointment yesterday11/16/17. Unfortunately I found out that I need full knee replacements in both knees. I was very happy when I was told that I could receive cortisone injections. I have to say my knees feel about 95% better today, and I'm sure by the end of the weekend theY will feel 100% better. I can't thank you enough.

Dr. Duke never made me feel like I was taking too much of his time. He was always willing to answer any questions and concerns I had. He was very kind and understanding about my nervousness. He put me at ease and made this surgery a piece of cake. I wish he had been my surgeon forty years ago.

I researched orthopedic surgeons for a total knee replacement prior to deciding on Dr. Duke. I live 2 hours away and it was well worth the drive. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and every time I called with a question, they returned my call that day. Dr. Duke did a fantastic job on my knee. He answers all questions and took as much time as I needed to completely understand the procedure and post op. I highly recommend him!

I'm only 56 years old and had Bi-Lateral knee replacement. Dr. Dukes office was so efficient and friendly to me. Dr. Duke put me at ease and my surgery was a breeze. My pain level was managed so well and my incisions are hardly noticeable. If I had to make the choice I would do it again!

Dr. Duke enters the room for your first meeting with a bright smile, a warm handshake, and direct eye contact listening intently to all that you have to say. These seemingly small gestures of good manners and genuine interest about you, the patient, are not found in all medical offices yet go a long way in creating a sense of confidence that makes you feel you chose the right surgeon: In the case of Dr. James Duke-you did exactly that. Six months after total knee replacement I am FANTASTIC!

I went to Dr. Duke after not having a comfortable feeling with my prior Orthopedic MD. Dr. Duke was kind, concerned and treated me like I was the President. He performed a total hip replacement on me and today being pain free. Electing Dr. Duke to perform the procedure was the best decision I could have made. Also, your interactions with his staff is outstanding. From Courtney, Dr. Dukes PA, to Susan in scheduling and Penny, the entire staff is very courteous, kind and helpful.

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!
