Dr. Wild replaced my knee over a year ago, and I am still having a lot of problems with pain. After surgery he told me to go to the gym and work out, that I didn't need Physical Therapy. We don't belong to a gym. He is a very abrupt and always in a hurry. I would NOT recommend him.

Dr. Wild performed knee replacement surgery on both of my knees (eight weeks apart). His work is impeccable. He is professional and to the point. He was recommended to me by a family friend who also had two knee replacements performed by him. I too highly recommend him.
