Dr. Tripuraneni did a superb job with my total knee replacement. Most of all, he understood my very active lifestyle and had me back with competitive horse riding 2 months to the day after surgery! It now has been 2 years, and I could not be happier. Best decision ever!! Thank you!!

Had a full knee replacement. Very happy with the results. Haven't felt this good in over ten years. Excellent Doctor.

Dr. Tripuraneni was wonderful throughout our entire process with him - from our initial visit to after surgery. He is kind, patient, and always willing to answer our questions and calm our concerns. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a hip and knee replacement surgeon!

He is very skilled and very nice. I love my new knee! It is in good shape due to him. Also, he answers my questions in a clear, easy-to-understand way. He gives good guidance before and after surgery. Great doctor!

I waited 3 months to see this hip doctor, and the first thing he says when he walks in is that I am seeing the wrong doctor because he only does total hip replacements. He refuses to answer my questions about the xrays and MRI which I paid for, and tells me to make yet another appointment with one of his co-workers that also does hips. 3 months of waiting, all that money and effort and he didn't even look at the MRI that I brought him. A Total waste of my time and money.

Dr Trip did my knee replacement and what a wonderful job he did . I would highly recommend Dr. Trip. He was very considerate of what I was expecting .
in Albuquerque, NM |
Arrogant, rushed, caused infection for 2 yrs in my surgical site, a know it all. When I asked for another Dr from their practice he laughed at me. Laughed at me.
in Cordova, NM |
He was very very good , explained my knee situation and was not rushing into knee replacements yet. Recommended we try I flamatory meds and a cordisone shot. Also recommended a brace but I am waiting on that for now. I highly recommend him. C
