I felt very comfortable and at ease when I met Dr Carter Very caring and very good at explaining what my best options were. With me Being under 50yrs old Carter recommended we hold off on a knee replacement as long as we could but it got so bad the replacement had to be done. Sept 2017 knee was replaced, April 2018 pain was worsening. X-rays always looked fine but after 7mos & then a bone scan...the Knee Hardware has loosened from my bone and I now have to have a total revision. Very Sad
