I had MPFL knee surgery with Dr. Watson about 6 years ago. Initially I was just disappointed in the lack of information about the specific procedure I had, and failure to have me begin physical therapy set me back. Following surgery, I still had pain in my knee all the time and never felt good. The surgery Dr. Watson performed failed 3 years later, and I had to have another MPFL surgery. I found a new surgeon and the more up-to-date procedure done was 100x better, recovery was easier, quicker and my knee feels so much better than it did after the first surgery.

Dr. Watson took care of both my mother and my husband and did an amazing job! He fixed my mom's hip and my husbands knee and they both were very happy and are doing great. He is very personal and his staff is pleasant and helpful both before and after surgery.

Dr. Watson, in my opinion is the very best orthopedic surgeon. He is skilled, knowledgeable and so caring. He really does treat you like a respected family member. I would highly recommend him. I had a total knee replacement and was very nervous. The surgery and recovery went so well and exceeded my expectations

Dr. Watson is an amazing orthopedic! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Him! I was in a fall accident this past 4th of July where I injured my right shoulder pretty bad. I went to a doctor that was recommended by my family physician in her building. He looked at my MRI, barely checked out my shoulder and basically told me nothing was wrong and i was "too old" to get surgery if I thought I needed it (i am 31!). He said I will be fine with rest. He didn't compare any previous MRIs or really even listen to me.
