My dad had his surgery on his left knee. This doctor has hurt him more than helped. Stay away if all possible. He has not seen my dad but one time since the operation. He had his in Blacksburg VA in 2019.

I just had my left knee revision TKR June 28,2019. The original surgery was done by Dr Velyvis on 1/30/2018 in Daily City, Ca. I had 3 doctors tell me my knees were the worst they have ever seen after Dr Velyvis surgery. He put the implants in too tight. Dr Sah in Freemont, Ca did the the revision on both knees and said they we horrible!!!

Dr. V did a total knee and right hip replacement for my wife with minimum pain, and a quick recovery. He did a partial knee for me. I actually walked out of the recovery room. No negative effects. He also did a full knee replacement for my sister. Obviously, we are BIG fans of Dr. V.
