      Dr. Jiganti has been my Orthopedic Surgeon since 2006. I've had both hips replaced and a total knee replacement, all done by Dr. Jiganti. He always took the time to explain this clearly to me prior to surgery and during follow up appointments. He is the best!

      I had my hip replaced 7 years ago and I just had a check up with Dr. Jaganti and I'm doing great. Dr. J had a tough one when it came to my hip. He had to stretch and really do some work to get me right. I went through a lot of therapy and I'm doing great 7 years later. I have recommended several people to Dr. J and have had them love his work and they feel great. Dr. J tells you straight up what you are going to face and is very truthful and is there anytime to answer any questions.

      I went to Dr Jiganti to determine if I needed a TKR. I had a TKR on my other leg five years earlier. Dr Jiganti was very thorough and explained all issues and recommendations. After I had the surgery, my recuperation was amazing. My incision healed quickly with no complication. The physical therapists were astounded by my rapid rehabilitation. My knee has never given me any trouble. I am very grateful for Dr Jiganti's skill and treatment.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
