Dr. Michael Laker truly is the best. In 2015 he did a bilateral total knee replacement surgeries. He explained every part from before surgery, to what to expect during surgery and after. I am very happy with my results. Took 2 years for a "full" recovery. He was also my doctor for a really bad spiral pilon ankle fracture in 2017, I obtained Easter Day, and he saw me a week later after swelling had gone done. That surgery required 2 plates and 18 screws. I currently have 1 plate and 8 screws (2019), from that injury, and am speaking with a colleague about the remaining hardware removal. The office staff are all really nice, and I looked forward to my follow up visits. I highly recommend Dr. Michael Laker. Jennifer 39 Yrs Old.

I had both knees replaced six years and I am so happy. No pain at all. I haveSara no problems bending my knees, walking or anything. This was the best decision I ever made. Dr. Laker is wonderful. I would highly recommend him.

Dr Laker replaced both of my hips in 2015 one in April and one in October. He listened to my concerns and accommodated when he could. His staff is friendly and helpful. My experience at St.Johns Providence Hospital was 5 star. They seriously could not have been any more helpful and kind. With my 2nd hip I was out of the hospital the next day and off the walker in 2 weeks, graduating to a cane for a few weeks. I do not limp and I am in NO pain. I work out and do yoga and feel 20 years younger!!
