Dr. Gesler's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Gesler "Specializing in general orthopaedics, adult joint reconstruction and total joint replacement, and spine care "My father was a research pharmacologist whose hobby was carpentry, and I really enjoyed building things with him in his workshop while growing up. Plus, I wanted to follow in his footsteps and achieve my doctoral degree. Orthopaedic surgery was very appealing to me because it would allow me to combine the challenge of problem-solving, my passion for building things and my enjoyment of interacting with people on a daily basis. I went on to complete residency training in orthopaedic surgery and today offer my patients nearly three decades of experience. I find it personally and professionally rewarding to be able to help patients of all ages overcome a whole host of painful, often debilitating conditions and injuries. This allows them to regain their function and return to their normal activities. I make a point of educating my patients on their condition and explaining everything in easy-to-understand terms. I also try to provide them with the utmost compassion and empathy... every step of the way.""

I have had 2 knees replaced and 2 hips replaced by Dr. Gesler. Had no problems. The pain I had was awfull but after the surgery there was no pain. I felt the doctor listened to what I was saying and was concerned for my health. He was very knowledgable with my situation and did the surgeries...more
