Dr. Lifrak did my left knee replacement surgery last year, and I have NO pain or any kind of problems with it.. I wish I would have done it a long time ago! I will probably do my right knee next year, since I had osteoarthritis in both knees.. Love Dr. Lifrak! I hope he stays here for many years!!

Had a life changing injury in 2013. Went to him for an opinion after previous dr retired. He was arrogant, rude and thought it was a laughing matter that he wouldn't help me. I asked for a wheel chair because I am barely walk. He said NO THAT WILL MAKE IT WORSE. Not sure how a wheel chair makes it worse if I can't do much of anything by walking or standing. He made me feel like an idiot in his office. I cried on my way out. Very disappointed.

Dr. Lifrak did two knee surgeries on me. My left knee and my right knee. I put shoes on horses for a living. I snowboard and ride dirt bikes on a regular. I can do everything I could do before my injuries with no pain. I would highly reccomend Dr. Lifrak to anyone who needs knee surgery. I would never let anyone else touch me. I would travel across the country if he moved to get my knee done by him.
