When I went to him, I was so down in the dumps about my knee OA. It had negatively affected all aspects of my life. Started thinking, this can't be my life at 44. This man gave me back my life! I will be forever grateful for his expertise in knee replacements and down right kindness, he's the nicest man! 9wks post op and the results exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds! His entire staff was wonderful!

I trusted Dr. Whiteside with my Life...18 years later...best decision WE could have made.
in Auxvasse, MO |
Dr. Whiteside performed a total hip replacement on my husband.. He had had one replaced already by a different doctor and this experience was much easier. He has had less pain and needed much less rehabilitation this time around. He was referred to us by a couple of my clients and we had heard great things about Dr. Whiteside. They were all TRUE. He is a brilliant physician and we couldn't be happier with the experience of his care. I will definitely have him do my next knee replacement!
