in Houston, TX |
I asked my doctor who he would see if he had to have knee surgery and Dr Nixon was his recommendation. What a difference between him and the first ortho I saw. Almost 2 years post surgery and my knee is normal so much so that having problems with my knee again I thought it was the knee I had surgery on when it isn't - its the knee that hasn't so I am getting an appt and seeing Dr Nixon again for the other kneww.
