Dr. Jeremy Bruce performed a total knee replacement on me a little over two years ago. I was back to work in two and half weeks. He did an amazing job and the scar is minimal. I love my new knee and I would not choose any other surgeon than him.

i would highly recommend Dr. Bruce for he's treated me in the last 4 years for my knee pain. I went to see him the first time for chronic knee pain in my left knee and received the synvisc shots which has been effective since then. I just had my last of three shots on my right knee today of synvisc for arthritis hoping it's as effective as it was on my left knee for worn cartilage. He's very knowledgeable how to treat your knee issues.

Dr Jeremy Bruce is a caring, ethical doctor. He is not surgery happy and even recommended more natural things to try before moving on to more serious treatments.

It was a longer wait- but once he got to me, he spent time with me and actually listened! If all his patients gets that time- I don’t mind waiting for quality, genuine, trustworthy care! I have only seen him once.... but I actually left a horrible doctor to come to him so he blew my mind with his compassion. He made me feel optimistic again about my pain & my future for my knees. Can’t speak highly enough of him thus far first impression-horrible knees we have a long road together- I needed this

Because of very unfriendly staff, we didn't get to see the Doctor so we don't know about him. We waited for an hour and forty minutes in a lobby that was filthy, then taken back to hear that we could see his nurse prac. and that would be another wait. when we told the staff we could not wait longer the nurse came in with an attitude that was showing , and said that we could reschedule , but after all that we decided never again,

I am 55 and had both knees replaced at the same time on June 2, 2016. I followed Dr. Bruce's instruction and keep them moving. 4 days in hospital, 2 weeks in home PT and 3 times for 4 weeks of outside PT. Stopped using walker after 2 1/2 weeks and back to work in 8 weeks. Doing great with 125 bends in both knees. Supportive husband, listening to your body, and following directions are keys to success. Dr Bruce and Amanda and PT team were excellent to work with.

waited a month for an appointment, spent 1 1/2 hour in waiting room, spent 10 minutes with Dr. Bruce. He looked at the disk of my MRI and said he would have to consult. Said he would call. I called and spoke with the nurse, she said she promised she would call. Over a month later no word from this Dr.

Dr. Jeremy Bruce was great to work with. I was having pain due to damaged cartilage in my right knee. The first doctor I saw, recommended a temporary fix and then a knee replacement in few years. Dr. Bruce gave my five options and I chose the OATS procedure. Non-weight bearing cartilage was transferred to replace my damaged cartilage. I was told it would take a year to heal but after 5 months, I'm now riding 75 miles a week, working out and just started some light running. Knee feels great!
