Dr. Lux replaced both my knees. The first knee was about 6 years ago, the second knee was almost a year ago. He knows what he's doing. Excellent bedside manner, easy to talk to, friendly and has a great sense of humor. Kind, caring, and extremely knowledgeable.

I told him on several occasions my hip pinning was not right. He told me to go home and take Prozac! I went to the head of the program and he was furious that I was misdiagnosed. No thanks to Dr Lux did I finally get relief after 18 awful months.
