Everything Dr. Joseph told me came to fruition. I used to walk like Quasimodo and after hip replacement surgery I felt like a human being again, I now walk totally upright and proud. I highly recommend Dr. Joseph and his great staff. The hospital where he does his surgery is also top shelf and excellent. Kenneth V. King

In October 2013, Dr. Joseph replaced my left knee. I had a very speedy recovery and rehabilitation and have had zero issues with that knee since. I was able to return to work 3 weeks after the replacement, and by 3 months, was able to walk completely normal on the knee. He is an excellent surgeon and I highly recommend him.

Dr Joseph has replaced both of my knees this year and I have had great success both times. He is very interested in what and how I was feeling before and after surgery and if I had anything to ask I would call and he or his nurse would get back with me as soon as possible. Don't figure on needing new knees again but if I should I hope Dr Joseph is still around so he can do the work!
