I've procrastinated long enough! I have done so as I know that there is no way that I can do justice to a review of Dr. Rasmussen. For several years, she cared for both my knees that needed replacement. She respected my wishes to delay replacement, never pushing me toward surgery. One day I had enough pain and limited activities and scheduled to have the left knee replaced. Dr. Rasmussen answered all of my questions as well as my husbands questions pre surgery and was in the room post surgery each day letting me know about my surgery and what was found during the Navio process. A rose was brought to the room from the good doctor Unbelievable! That was a first. She let me know what was expected of me and emphasized the diet as well as the PT. The diet in the hospital was good and plentiful with lots of protein to help the healing process. This is the first time EVER that a surgeon stressed diet. Dr. Rasmussen is fully invested in her patients recovery. Mahalo Dr. Rasmussen

Dr. Linda is the best knee surgeon in the state of Hawaii because of her expertise, experience and wonderful personality. I highly recommend anyone who has knee problems to give her a visit. I’m so glad I did. It changed my life. I’m very grateful. Kevin Jakahi, Hilo

Dr Rasmussen did my full knee replacement on May 3, 2019. Tomorrow will be 4 weeks post op and I am walking comfortably without a walker or cane - and drive myself to meet friends for lunch today. I have regained my full range of motion. There is still healing going on inside the knee and some on and off swelling which is normal and part of the healing process. My physical therapist said this about Dr Rasmussen, “I love to work with her patients; she does the cleanest work, her patients pain is well managed, and they heal faster than other doctor’s patients. Dr Rasmussen is a great surgeon. She is confident (without ego) because she knows what she is doing- and does it very well. She does her surgeries at Adventist’s Castle Medical - which is like a small boutique hospital with an amazing, friendly and professional staff. 5 stars For the whole experience.

Dr. Rasmussen is indeed a great surgeon but more than that she is a great human being. Impeccable work and then delivering roses to our rooms after surgery is really over the top. Her lectures on Maui quarterly are helpful for future clients. I am happy]to recommend her to everyone I talk to. Regards, Martha B. Ingalls

I'm six weeks out from my total left hip replacement and it's been an experience! Dr. Rasmussen and her team did an excellent job, efficiently handled. Except for some residual side effects from the anesthesia the first couple of days, recovery has been steady. Quit the walker in 3 days, the cane and opioids in 10, and daily acetaminephen in less than a month. At six weeks, I can walk more than a mile, and ride a stationary bike for 30 minutes every other day. Thanks Dr. R.!

My experience with Dr. Rasmussen & her staff has been excellent. I had 2 hip replacement surgeries in 6 weeks. Both went without a hitch. From diagnosis to follow-up, I have had nothing but attentive, professional care & treatment.

I feel like a new woman! My knees were so bad that I was barely able to walk let alone exercise. Dr. Rasmussen came to me highly recommended so I flew over to meet her. She was warm and really took time with me. I already knew she was highly skilled. I did each knee a few months apart and had last one done only a few weeks ago. I no longer waddle! Both knees are strong and straight. I have my life back! Dr. R is a true artist in more ways than one.

I had a TKR at age 46. It has been almost three years since the procedure. From the very beginning I knew Dr. Rasmussen was a great member of my team in getting through this. I worked hard in therapy and was cruising down the road of rehab quite nicely till scar tissue crept in at month 8 and 9. Quite frustrating. We worked together to find the right solutions and she continued to be in my corner. Patient and comforting. Her office also took the time to do the necessary FMLA papers.

My husband and I searched for four years for a doctor to fix his knee. We actually came close to surgery twice, but it never felt right. We heard about Dr. Rasmussen and made an appointment. She was professional, thorough and made my husband feel comfortable. If you are looking for a great and competent doctor, she is your best choice.
