Knee replacement worse than knee before surgery. Dr told me after the surgery " I only have problems with the younger patients " I was 44. This was not mentioned a possibility before the surgery. I had knee replacement, MUA, 9 mos of physical therapy and can't bend past 99 degrees. Everyone else gets to 120 or better. I feel my knee is too big for my bones, or the angle is off. But he wont admit he made a mistake.

I had severe pain in both knees and almost could not walk due to Osteoarthritis. In November 2016 I had bilateral knee surgery. My postoperative course has been excellent. I have pain free mobility and full range of motion. Dr. Taunton and his staff were extremely thorough and friendly. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Dr. Robert K. Clark (retired Ob/Gyn)

I had both my knees replaced by Dr. Taunton. This physician and his staff are top notch medical professionals. It is so much easier to endure the difficulties associated with these procedures when you are surrounded by a compassionate and caring team. The staff at Bear Creek Surgery Center, Dr. Holden and Dr. Oak were another amazing group of professionals. ooo I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Taunton and his team to anyone, anytime and anywhere.

4 years ago I had both knees replaced by Dr. Taunton. Today I can run up and down stairs, ride my bike and go for extended walks (I am 75 years old). A very skilled, professional Doctor. Takes time to listen and explain the surgery and recovery, step-by-step. Would recommend him (and have) to anybody anticipating knee replacement surgery. The hospital is, just like Dr. Taunton, above average.

If I could leave a minus star review I would. Horrible Dr.! He has the bedside manner of a door knob. He does not care about his patients and will actually leave you worse than you were before you came to him.

Three years ago I had knee replacements on both legs. I had Dr. Taunton recommended to me and it was a good choice. I was very pleased with my care, they treated me like a queen from start to finish! I could not have had a better experience for this surgery. I am very thankful to be able to stand and walk without pain. I like Dr.Taunton very much, he is very professional and his staff was excellent . I am always proud to say who did my surgeries. I had great confidence,and was not disappointed.
