After an old knee injury flared up, I was in crippling pain for over a year. I went to see top surgeons in NYC, Boston and even the surgeon for the Denver Broncos! None of them could figure out why I was in so much pain. Thank goodness I was finally refereed to Dr. Fulkerson. He diagnosed my condition right away. I am 3 months post surgery and feeling so much better! Dr. Fulkerson predicts that I will be 100% healed 1 year post surgery! Than You Dr. Fulkerson! I am so grateful!

26, had two prior knee surgeries with two different surgeons which did not address the knee issues I was having. Fulkerson performed my third in Dec 2015: Fulkerson osteotomy, microfracture procedure, lateral release. Long recovery but best decision I have ever made. I'm not even a year out and I already have more function than I did prior to surgery! Fulkerson saved my active life, very knowledgeable and personable, my only regret is I didn't find him sooner!

I had 2 Fulkerson Osteotomy procedures after having 6 unsuccessful knee surgeries in Texas, Louisiana and Alabama. Dr. Fulkerson was a dream come true and finally fixed my knees. He also corrected problems other surgeons caused in the process. Thank you, Dr. Fulkerson, you gave me my life back.
