      Clear and concise communication from my first visit through surgery and follow up. All went as hoped for and Dr. Carothers' entire team performed flawlessly. Pain management and recovery were both significantly better than two previous joint replacements. Two months out and the knee is pain free. I'm back hiking, biking and can even knee.

      Dr. Carothers made me feel totally comfortable in my decision to have my hip replacement done. I truly felt that he had a true concern for my well being. He had the experience and knowledge to perform a VERY successful surgery despite my having a below knee amputation. I have not felt this good since 1986. It truly has been the best decision I have made.
