I had double knee replacement by Dr. Curtis. He did such a great job that my physical therapist completed released me from treatment with in one week after returning home. That's right, even before the wound healed. They said they had never seen anything like that before. Key to my story, God, Dr. Curtis, hard work. I still work and train a year after replacement so I can always move like I want to move. Have recommended him to everyone who needs such expertise. Eddie

ONE FAMILY. FIVE SURGERIES. THREE CHANGED LIVES. Dr. Curtis changed my life when he operated on my right shoulder, and restored my full range of motion. Before, I couldn't put on my shirt without help. Now I can! I?m not alone. He also replaced both knees of my younger brother, and now he?s more functional than he has been in 20 years. That?s not all. He also replaced the knee of my eldest brother, and a joint in his thumb. Obviously, we can?t recommend Dr. Curtis enough.
