I came to Dr Krieg in dire straights, coming to see him with my local ortho telling me my knee is what is at this point, or I can fuse your knee ...almost sarcastically. At the age of 45 with kids and grand kids, and being physical with a physical job...my life was done for. I came to see Dr krieg, and in ten minutes he rediagnosed my crippling injury! To me, Dr Krieg found several complications, and a bone infection. success. Hardware removal, and success in giving me my life back!! Thank you!
