Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Estrera "Not all patients need surgery, which is why Dr. Estrera exhausts all nonoperative options before considering a hip or knee replacement. He notes that joint replacements are life-long commitments and says a vital part of his job is thus educating patients and their family members about the process, which improves the experience and eventual outcome."

Dr. Estrera has completed surgery on both my right & left knees. His expertise has allowed me to be very comfortable doing all the things I was doing before I had the knee replacements. He is very professional and a skilled surgeon.
