in Akron, OH |
Dr. Blanda is an extraordinary surgeon who has surrounded himself with an excellent Physical Therapy Team and a skilled and caring staff. This office has it all, hours to accommodate anyone's schedule, free parking and exceptional care. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Blanda and I recommend him to all of my family and friends!
Akron, OH |
Dr. Blanda is wonderful at what he does. He spends time with his patients and really has their best interests at heart. This is my first orthopedic doctor since I left Children's Hospital orthopedics and considering my surgical history, Dr. Blanda has been very understanding and has worked to eliminate my symptoms. I would send any family member or friend who needed an orthopedic doctor to Dr. Blanda without second thought.

My knee is like new since Dr. Blanda replaced it last year. Great surgeon. Great physical therapy. Couldn't be happier.
Wadsworth, OH |
I have had Dr. Blanda replace my left knee in Jan. 2016. By August the knee had gotten infected and at the same time I was going to his office for P.T. No one there even noticed I had an infection. They all were busy moving patients through the door. Bad, very bad.
Steve, I'm glad our phone conversation cleared up all of your concerns. Don't ever hesitate to contact me, I'm always available for my patients.

Excellent is all I can say!
in Hudson, OH |
After suffering from knee problems for a majority of my life, Dr. Blanda was the first physician who gently suggested lifestyle changes. He so kindly helped me realized that losing weight and strengthening my knee could fix my pain. His PT staff has been so supportive and he also gave me the most pain-free cortisone shot I've ever had! I am so thankful for Dr. Bland and his team!
in Akron, OH |
Dr. Blanda and his staff were so helpful when I came in with a chronic back issue. Surgery has been recommended by previous orthopedic surgeons but that was a last resort and thankfully my issue has been greatly improved after visits with Dr. Blanda and his physical therapy team.
