Dr. Verner is one gifted surgeon! replaced both hips; one in 2018, other May 2019. He did great work! Was on stationary bike with light pedaling 3 weeks after each replacement. He's also very caring and compassionate, along with his staff. I found the key to quick recovery/mobility was to do the stretching exercises religiously, right away. After stretching each and every day, the discomfort became less & less immediately. The stretching isn't easy at first but it is required to quickly get back all mobility.

Dr. Verner is a very caring person and an excellent orthopedic surgeon. He replaced both of mu husband's knees ten years ago. My husband had Parkinson's and Dr. Verner took very good care of him. The doctor replaced my left knee three months ago and my right knee last week. Cannot say enough good things about Dr. Verner He is a doctor's doctor! I am fortunate to have him as my surgeon.

Very honest regarding surgery and risk, very thorough in his explanation of the necessary pre surgery protocol ( how to prepare) and PA was helpful in post op visit with what to expect in the healing process. Very grateful to Dr. Verner and his staff for assisting me in regaining quality of life in restoring mobility and independence.

Dr. Verner answered all my questions. My knee replacement surgery went very well and was followed by therapy with the X-10 machine. My outpatient PT was surprised at how well I was doing 2 weeks after surgery. My scar healed very well with no special care. He uses a waterproof bandaid that allowed me to shower. My experirnce was very positive. I would highly recommend Dr. Verner.
