My ever deforming knee was making me a fall risk. Unlike an other Orthopedic Dr Wu said she would make it straight. She did! It is two years into my reclaimed vitality, I am experiencing unlimited activity. I am pain free. Thank you Dr. Wu for allowing a 54 yr old a good life.

Dr. Wu replaced my knee in 2013. She has a warm bedside manner. The surgery went well. I was forewarned about what to expect post surgery. I am ready for my other knee to be replaced and will only see her. Her skills are very good.
