Dr. Edwards was understanding and explained all the facts of a total hip replacement without being pushy by letting me chose when to have surgery. Post opt he guided me back to a productive life for which i am very great full.

The first Dr that I saw concerning my knee basically told me that I was too old for a scoping surgery my daughter suggested I get a second opinion. Dr.Edwards said he would do the surgery. I have my knee back
