Just completed a 63 mile bike tour through West Virginia with my new knee. Glad to report that new knee worked better than the old knee, and that I completed the tour in a record time.

Dr. Schluntz is exactly what you want your doctor to be! I had my full knee replacement 9 days ago and I am walking on my own without any devises! Of course, I am still taking pain killers... Dr. Schluntz is a magician and definitely the best orthopedic surgeon in this area. Just follow his orders...more

Had a knee replacement. He explained everything in great detail. He was pushy with regard to Physical Therapy which was great. I now understand the importance of being rigorous with PT after surgery. Definitely recommend im
