From the first time I was on my feet for therapy after surgery I knew that I had made the right decision and had chosen the best surgeon I could have.

I first consulted Dr. Kraay in 2007 for a second opinion on knee replacement surgery since another surgeon felt it was urgent I have the procedure performed. I had been wearing knee braces for 7 years and had relief with injections. Dr. Kraay suggested, if I didn't mind wearing the braces, I wait as long as possible for surgery. Since I was still able to work and do all that I needed to, and with the manual labor I did for a living, he was concerned I would wear out a replacement. I was quite impressed with his guidance, and returned to him 8 years later for total knee replacements in 2015 & 2016, followed by my right hip replacement in 2019. I cannot recommend him enough!

Dr. Kraay is a straight-forward, brilliant physician. I am fortunate to have picked him from several recommended physicians for total knee replacement. His clinical staff were professional but kind. Well done Dr. Kraay!

Dr Kraay did an excellent job on my hip replacement. I was walking the same day and was back to a very physical job with no complication in six weeks.
