On my visits to Dr Bramlett I was always welcomed by friendly staff. I made many visits as Dr Bramlett gave me injections in my knee trying to help avoid surgery. The time came when I had to make the decision to have complete knee replacement surgery. I wish I had done it sooner! Completely satisfied! I’m 6 weeks out and couldn’t have had a better outcome. I highly recommend Dr Bramlett to anyone faced with any type knee problems! He’s the best!

This doctor has the worst bedside manner!! It is one thing to sugar coat things and one thing to tell the truth without the expense of embarrassing and hurting your patients feelings! Doctors like this make my skin crawl!! Do Not support a man who grabs you and tells you to lose weight being demeaning and rude in front of other office employees!!

I had a full hip replacement done by Dr Bramlett. I will not consider anyone else. I had an excellent experience, I was back home quickly, I was able to do my therapy at home with my own equipment, and I was back to work in two weeks. This procedure was like a miracle relieving all my pain!

Dr. Bramlett is an awesome surgeon very professional and straight to the point. He did a total knee replacement on me and done a great job. The only Orthopedic that actually told me my problem he cares about his patients. If you do what he says you will have a speedy recovery. I would definitely use him again.

Dr Bramlett was referred to my husband by some very happy patients. He is highly professional and right to the point. His stern personality is different but he has a pleasant side as well. I would highly recommend a dr of his caliber. He was very successful in completely replacing my husband's hip and we are looking forward to having his second one replaced..Hats off to Dr Bramlett :)

After many doctors and many years and 100’s of tests and 15 surgeries, Dr. Bramlett diagnosed my need for a new hip within 10 minutes from a simple X-ray!!! And within several months, I was feeling better than I had in 20 years!

Dr Bramlett did my first total knee replacement in May, 2019 and my other knee in September, 2019 with great success! He is an outstanding surgeon and I can't say enough good things about him. He is very knowledgeable, direct and I found him to be witty. My recovery has been easy and my progression has been remarkable.

I had badly torn right shoulder rotator cuff. So much so that my right arm mobility was impaired. Not due to pain but due to detachment from the muscle. I also had an MRI that indicated a full thickness tear. I chose Dr. Bramlett because of his reported ability to use a relatively new technique, bio-inductive rotator cuff surgery using a collagen patch. When I came out of the OR I was told that no problem with the RC was found and no repair was made. I had to get the repair work done by another surgeon 2 months later. When I asked why and why he would think my RC was intact when there was an MRI stating to the contrary, I was told by his assistant that he seldom reads MRIs. It would be an understatement to say that I was extremely disappointed with this experience with Dr. Bramlett.

Dr. Bramlett's skill exceeds his excellent reputation as an exceptionally gifted surgeon. He and his staff are meticulous, focused, and professional. After two total knee replacements within the past five weeks, I can walk unassisted, I am regaining full range of motion by following Dr. Bramlett's proven advice and I am already aware that my lifestyle has improved. Dr. Bramlett and his staff are unparalleled in providing the least invasive procedures yet the most efficient benefits for knee replacement.

As a new patient with Dr. Bramlett, I had no concept of what to expect. The man is concise, capable, and pragmatic. He repaired a Morton's neuroma that had bothered me for a number of years. I'm only one week out from surgery and am doing amazingly. I enjoy his quick wit and his keen ability to pinpoint issues, even if it means I must lose weight for him to even discuss a possible knee replacement. I've become a real 'loser' and am glad of it. I look forward to a long-time relationship with this knowledgeable man.

Dr. Bramlett is the best! He repaired my broken ankle several years ago, then my left shoulder and, recently, my right shoulder. The recovery time has been amazing and my pain is minimal. I highly recommend Dr. Bramlett!!
