I'm recovering from meniscus surgery that was conducted by another surgeon. Great surgery, but physical therapy undid the benefits that I had experienced from the surgery. Dr. Herrema patiently explained other non-surgical options. He is a caring physician with a conservative approach. I look forward to working with him toward gaining better mobility with less pain. I would recommend Dr. Herrema without hesitation to anyone who wants to "keep their knees" as long as possible.

Very knowledgeable and conservative in his treatments. He explains everything to you clearly, he takes time and does not rush you with your questions and concerns. You do not leave the office without understanding everything. Plus he is very pleasant and kind.

I was really terrified to have hip replacement surgery. I am an active, 65 year old who loves tennis, walking on the beach & bike riding. When these activities were no longer possible, I felt resigned to surgery. My recovery from hip replacement surgery has been remarkable! I actually had less pain after surgery than before. My post-operative check up was scheduled for 13 days after surgery. I walked into Dr. Herrema's office. Three weeks after surgery, I will return to work! Excellent!

I kept working after damaging my left knee on business travels 3/2017. I knew from a right knee orthoscopic surgery in 2010 I had torn the meniscus. The MRI reading called it a "macerated meniscus" and after reviewing the films with Dr. Herrema it was pretty bad. I am only 2 weeks out from the procedure but i am amazed at the level of use i have regained and that the extreme pain is gone. I've decided to transfer the ongoing care for my noisy right knee to Dr. Mitchell.

Thank you and your staff at Orthopedic Specialties for the great care I received as a patient there. Words can’t describe how good it feels to be pain free after you replaced my hip. I truly feel like you have given me a new lease on life. After limping around for a year and half my only regret is that I didn’t have it done sooner. It’s only been two weeks now but I’ve been walking pain free without a walker or cane as much as a mile.

Having gone months under Chiropractic care including Laser Therapy without any relief from my hip pain I sought out an Orthopeadic Surgeon. My primary care physician after xray agreed. I was familiar with MIS surgery from a total knee replacement in CA and I wanted the same positive result for my hip! I found Dr. Herrema! There is no other way to have the procedure done. One day after surgery I was home,no pain, unbelievable and four weeks later I'm walking like i've not done in months.
