Doctor LInschoten is such an wonderful orthopaedic doctor with very excellent skills. I would recommend him to anyone. His work on my knee has been such a blessing and it is healing wonderfully. I'm sure that my surgery is only one in many outstanding surgical experiences accomplished by Dr. Linschoten! He is very compassionate, he really listens and cares about the progress of his patients. His office is easy to reach and his staff are all very accomadating and very helpful. You can trust Dr. Linschoten with your knee and hip problems.

I was immediately and accurately diagnosed. I was given options to try before having the surgery and i felt that my concerns were always addressed well. My surgery and recovery experience was excellent. When I called with any concerns or questions the Dr always arranged to see me. I am thrilled with the results of my surgery and am grateful to have the ability to live a full life again thanks to Dr Linschoten.

Very friendly and competent staff, including imaging specialist. Dr. Linschoten listens carefully; he makes an extra effort to address the problems, and consults with the patient to be sure that the proper cure and follow-up are agreed on and tracked. He is outstanding among physicians I have seen; and he documents the visit carefully. (My reasons for seeing Dr. L are hip, back, knee and shoulder.)

I chose Dr. Linschoten for his expertise and have been very happy so far. The recuperation post Make Robotic surgery of my left knee seems to be progressing better than when I had my non robotic arm right knee replaced eight years ago.
