Dr. Megan Swanson is the best. With her knee replacement technique she cuts much less muscle and the healing process is faster with much less pain. Physical therapy time is shortened. I am certainly an example! God Bless her.

I have heard by word of mouth from quite a few people that have had a TK and they were more than happy with the results. I have not had my TKR yet but I am anticipating a great outcome.
