Dr. Lonner did a partial knee replacement on me. Fantastic results. Was walking within days, only required three days of rehab, surgical site healed incredibly well. Pain from bone on bone arthritis is totally gone, and have, after 3.5 weeks been able to walk fully normally on a leg that has not been normal for years. He used latest minimally invasive, robotic surgery that uses a 3D laser to measure how to cut the bone, and a robotic device to do it. Superb doctor.

Dr. Lonner refreshed my life. I am 62 and in December 2018 i had a partial knee replacement. Walking was very painful, and the day of the operation I was walking with a walker only because I was unsure of myself. Walking up and down stairs in 2 days. Within a week I was walking with a cane, and in 2 weeks I had full range of motion, and in 4 weeks I was doing 4 miles on the stationary bike, 2 miles on the elliptical and 2 miles on the treadmill 4 days a week! Now I can’t wait for warmer weather

Dr. Lonner performed a TKA on my right knee on July 5, 2018 .For those of you who have spent years in pain and are hesitant to have the surgery please see Dr. Lonner. Dr. Lonner has the expertise and knowledge that is needed to start you on a brand new journey- one without pain. He is top in his field, he is kind, patient and thoughtful. I no longer sit on the sidelines watching life go by but participate in life and enjoy each day, grateful for a new beginning and a new knee.

Dr Lonner has operated on me twice and my husband once. I had a torn meniscus and a knee replacement. My Husband had a partial replacement. Not many Doctorsr can do a partial replacement but Dr Lonner can. My knee was too bad so I had to have a total replacement. The best decision I made. I had a very swift and easy recovery. I wasn't in pain just discomfort from the swelling. He will not operate unless it is necessary and he can fix the problem. He is the best in my book.

Dr. Lonner performed a total knee replacement for me in less than 1 hour. He is calm, pleasant and a wonderful surgeon. I also had an amazing team of DPT's to help with the recovery and now I can perform tasks pain free for the first time in years. I teach dance and can kneel, squat, spiral down to the floor, etc.

It has been 5 years since my artificial kneecap operation. I sent my MRIs to more than 10 doctors, nobody came up with a satisfying solution. Dr Lonner said he could help right away. Most doctors had told me that I was not going to entirely recover and, at 39 at the time, I still wanted to go out walking and enjoy a social life. 5 years have passed from the operation, I go out swing dancing a couple of days a week, go running on the treadmill and I don't think about my knee. Thank you !

Dr. Lonner was recommended by another surgeon because of my arthritis in a specific place in my knee. I was willing to try anything including moving into a one-story house. My partial/uni knee replacement changed my life. If you are a candidate for this surgery--do it!! It was the best medical decision I ever made.

I came to Dr. Lonner at age 48 and i had been getting Synvisc shots on both knees for years by a doc that left practice suddenly. Fortunately I found Dr. Lonner. I am a active person and have studied a full contact martial art for 9 years as well as trail ran to train for group events. My knees were destroyed. Dr. Lonner advises bilateral knee replacement. He gave me my life back! I love Dr. Lonner. He truly is the BEST and MOST CARING doctor I have ever ever had. Great experience!!! :)

I highly recommend Dr. Lonner if you need total knee replacement surgery. He takes his time explaining the procedure to your complete understanding. Addresses any concerns you may have about recovery time. Thorough post op office visit. I have complete trust in his ability & professionalism as a surgeon.

Dr. Lonner did an excellent job with my TKR, you could barely see my scare. From the palimnary visit to my post Op 6 week check up Dr Lonner was very professional and always answered all my questions and explained things to me. I highly recommend him. I had my surgery at the Physician care Surgical Hospital in Royersford and they also provided Top notch service.

Excellent results for knee replacement, for a very unusual condition of natural knee. I was impressed with the amount of time are and post op he took in discussion and explaining process, recovery period/expectations for full recovery. Would highly recommend to future candidates.

He was always patient with me during my decision phase. Once I scheduled the surgery he was honest and set my expectations about the recovery.
