Dr Bustamamte did bilateral knee replacements for me in December 2013. I took a fall last month and both my femurs broke out from the prosthetic knees! New surgeon said those previous surgeries had not given me enough bone to withstand a fall. He revised gave me new prosthetic knees with longer femur extensions. Never again will I go to Bustamante!!!0
