It was an amazing experience! We considered all precautionary action prior to deciding upon a hip replacement. From pre-surgery through post-surgery, recovery, and follow-up appointments have been outstanding. Care for people is at the paramount with Dr. Linschoten and his team of professionals. Thank you for getting me back on my feet!

I love this doc.. he is straight forward, and is clear on expectations from you. I expected the worst pain ever following my knee replacements and I was amazingly surprised with next to no pain. His use of the Mako robotics system was the best choice I ever made! Thank you for every pain free step!

We would not go to any other orthopedic doctor for hips or knees than Dr. Linschoten. Over the years we have recommended him to many friends.

Great experience with Dr. Linschoten and staff. He is a very calm and gentle man who made me feel very comfortable during my consultation. Dr. Linschoten was very attentive to my needs and concerns. He explained in detail what I can expect if I did get surgery and if I didn't get surgery. I will see him again if I have to get surgery on the other hip.

Exemplary in every way! I felt well prepared for the surgery and a tremendous support from Dr. Linschoten. Throughout the process my questions were always answered. Dr. Linschoten is an incredible surgeon and gifted with compassion for his patients. I am sorry it took me so long to muster up the courage to do this... should have done this years ago! I will be forever grateful!

Outstanding Experience and Results! Dr. Linschoten treated my knee for three years before it became necessary for knee replacement. I trusted him completely and found his diagnoses and treatments to be accurate and helpful. When the time came for TKR he was clear in his explanations. The results have been better than I could have imagined. I was walking miles, biking, playing golf, and mowing the lawn within a matter of weeks post-op. Dr. Linschoten and his staff have helped me tremendously.
