I found Dr. Blanda is the respected and dedicated doctor I often heard about. When I first met with him it was a painful struggle to even make it around the block. A final decision was made for me to have a partial knee replacement. Throughout my care both before and after surgery I stuck with the exercises, PT and diet considerations he strongly encouraged. He always made himself available to address any concerns. Now a year out from my surgery I am biking, hiking, gardening, walking and taking classes at the YMCA. So for me it was well worth the work. My many thanks to you Dr. Blanda and your staff.

I had knee replacement surgery 1//14/20 with Dr. Blanda. Dr. Blanda prepared me prior to the surgery with information and exercises in order to increase positive outcomes from the surgery. His continued interest in my recuperation post surgery has made my knee replacement a very positive experience for me. He is knowledgeable, skilled and most importantly approachable. Dr. Blanda and his staff have provided me with the information and tools that I need for a successful recovery.

I highly recommend Dr. Blanda and his staff; they are fantastic! Over the past nine months, Dr. Blanda prepared me for both of my total knee replacements. Both surgeries and recoveries went very well. Dr. Blanda spent time with me, informing me about the procedure, the recovery and he answered my many questions. He is caring and compassionate, but pushes you to take responsibility for your own recovery by following his instructions and the PT exercises. Everyone in the office from Dr. Blanda, to the Physical Therapists, to the office staff, provided expertise and guidance to make the process as successful as possible. If I need any further orthopedic care, I will definitely return to Dr. Blanda.

Over the last three years he has replaced both my knees. Very satisfied with him. He is down to earth, doesnt talk down to you, explains things, and does not rush you.

If I could do 0 stars I would. Prior to treatment, I had swelling/ pain approx. 20-25% of time, but was able to do physical activity. After injection, without considering other options or sharing possible complications with injections, I now have swelling/ pain/ discomfort 90-95% of the time (4 months later) and have difficulty doing many physical activities. I was told this was "the best option" without sharing possible side effects or complications. After researching the injection, much has been published about the many risks associated with injections...again, these were not shared prior to treatment. At a follow-up, I was told he did not know what to do and that might simply be because of bad joints and to take anti-inflammatory medication (ibuprofen) to see if that works. Again...to go from having symptoms 25% to 95% is not due to a condition advancing, but to a failed treatment. My advice, don't just assume a doctor is doing what is best for you & know what they are doing

By far Dr.Blanda is "THEE ABSOLUTE BEST" IF I ever had to have another procedure done he is DEFINITELY my go to surgeon. I recommend him 1000 % Had my surgery done in June and you can barely tell there's a scar there. His PT staff is also very awesome they truly care about your needs and getting you on the road to recovery. The office staff is great also. In a nutshell I truly cannot say enough about Dr.Blanda and his staff.
