    in Milwaukee, WI |
    After years of suffering from excruciating knee pain caused by Osteoarthritis that wore away all the cartilage in both knee joints, I turned to Dr. Pearl. Three years ago, Dr. Pearl performed bilateral knee replacement surgery and the results in my mind, were nothing short of miraculous. Within months, my knees felt better than they had in 30 years. Today, I have full mobility and no pain and enjoy a very active lifestyle. I feel blessed and extremely grateful - thanks so much Dr. Pearl!

    Dr. Pearl was my sons doctor in 1983 when my son was in an automobile accident on 2nd ave and broke his hip in 12 place. Dr Pearl spent 11 hours putting it back together. He is the best as a person and a doctor. Carl is healthy and happy and has invented a left ventricular assist pump. Bea Botterbusch
