Because of the education before and after my bilateral knee replacement I had a very positive experience. Dr. Newman and his team let me know what to expect every step of the way. They dealt with my questions in a timely manner but more importantly I was always treated with respect and compassion. I look forward to hiking Bryce and Zion!

I injured both knee's in 1984 and been living with this problem ever since. Finally I came to the end of my road and couldn't tolerate the pain any more. My wife found Dr. Newman online and found out he did Bilateral knee surgery. On March 26th he and his team performed the Bilateral knee surgery. It was an awesome day. I am now 6 weeks past the surgery and cannot believe the results. I have straight legs again and my knee pain is just about gone. I just have the surgery discomfort to work through which is subsiding fast. For me Dr. Newman and his team was a God-send. I have no complaints at all. I would definitely recommend him and his team to anyone for the knee surgery. He and his team worked in a very professional way and kept me informed about everything related to the surgery. All I can say to Dr. Newman and his team is THANK YOU and GOD BLESS all of you for a Job well done. :)

I had to have a total knee replacement/revision after a difficult 1st knee replacement only 4 years ago. This was a complicated revision which also included an adjustment to my MCL I did not go into this surgery lightly and neither did Dr. Newman. Dr. Newman was extremely thorough in his examinations, explanations and follow-thru. I was completely confident in his ability to straighten my knee. The surgery went well and my recovery has amazed my PT team. I definitely highly recommend him.

I have had numerous orthopedic procedures in the past 47 years that have included two total left knee replacements and repairing a broken left hip. Dr. Newman replaced my right knee on January 22, 2019. He is by far the most compassionate and caring orthopedist I have ever met. He is extremely knowledgeable and listens to his patients’ concerns with genuine understanding. Dr. Newman and his staff are top notch. I am now six weeks post-op, and my recovery has been positive in every way.

Dr. Newman is an excellent orthopedic surgeon. Had a full knee replacement with Dr. Newman one year ago (2018) and everything went smoothly. Surgery was good, recuperation wasn’t bad and I am pain free. Have recommended Dr. Newman to several people who have followed up with him successfully. Thank you Dr. Newman.

If you are looking for an orthopedic surgeon this is your doctor. Dr Newman and his team are by far the most knowledgeable, personable, experienced team I have met. From the minute I met dr Newman I new I had found my surgeon. He took the time to explain everything and answer any questions I had. He talked to me not at me. I felt very comfortable with dr Newman and new I could call his office any time if I had questions. I had bilateral total knee replacement surgery and could not be happier.

November of 2015, Dr. Newman performed a bilateral hip replacement on me. It was his recommendation that I have both done at the same time. The surgery and recovery period was excellent. Now being three years post-op I can say that I am 99.9% pain free and I would highly recommend Dr. Newman and his team for hip and knee replacements.

I had a terribly damaged left knee that had deteriorated over the last 39 years. He advised me it was time for replacement and it is not possible to be more satisfied. It has only been 6 weeks post surgery and I am already riding my recumbent bike for 2 miles a day. His knowledge, skill, bedside manner, and all his staff are top notch. I would say to anyone who needs knee replacement, take the time to talk to him before you make you surgeon choice.

Dr. Newman did a double knee replacement for me in July 2018. Dr. Newman and his staff made the whole procedure easier. If I ever had a question, someone was always available to assist me. Dr. Newman is a compassionate doctor who listens to the patient. He showed a genuine concern for my condition and was able to help me get my life back to normal. I cannot thank him enough!

Six years ago I had a knee replacement, then two partial replacements and six weeks ago I underwent a complete revision. Dr. Newman fixed me up so that my knee feels better than it has in fifteen years. He truly gave me my life back !
