      My sister tore her ACL and Dr. Hinton was her doctor. A couple years later I had Osteochondritis dissecans and Dr. Hinton did all three of my surgeries. He is the best doctor I have ever had. He explained everything and took his time. He is a marvelous surgeon. I have recommended him to everyone who is having orthopedic problems. I will continue to refer him as he is the best doctor and he made my life better through his work. If you want a good doctor go to him. You will not regret it.
