      Dr.Sides has done two knees, 2001,2003, and a left hip, 2013 for me. his bedside manor and attentiveness is a big reason I go to him for all my orthopedic needs. I feel very comfortable talking to and discussing the problems I am having. He explains everything in simple terms. You just feel like you know what's going on when you leave his office. Plus he has the same great bedside manor after surgery. He's just a good guy. You will like him I promise.

      Dr. Sides was, and still is an excellent surgeon that is upfront with all the facts. He is direct, doesn't sugar coat the ailment & advises his patients of all options before having to conduct major surgeries. At pre & post op sureries, Dr. Sides always talked with me about the procedure & then followed up with me in my room. He by far is the best suregeon I've had thus far & he makes me comfortable & has my complete confidence.
