Dr. Hughes is an excellent surgeon. He replaced my knee using a modern, custom implant. He is caring, compassionate and is currently helping me transition back to work. His staff is pleasant and responsive. It is hard to find such an accomplished Worker's Comp surgeon. Dr Hughes has the education and expertise. He is one of the good guys.
