I had both knees done at the same time. It wasn’t as hard as I thought it was going to be. Dr. Heller does a different cut and I can get on my knees. Every one I know can not, but they didn’t have Dr. Heller. He’s the nicest kindest doctor I have ever been too.

Dr. Heller is awesome! He has a great bedside manner but more importantly, he is an extremely good surgeon. He did both of my wife's hips, just 3 weeks apart and everything went as smoothly as we could hope for.
