I have been going to Dr. Bruce for the past 10 years. He is always, pleasant, factual, thorough, and compassionate. He has done two knee replacements, repaired my broken knee cap, and repaired a torn meniscus, all with success. I am extremely confident in his abilities to address any of my orthopedic needs.

I went to him for hip pain. I was told I had bursitis. I have had this problem before. He said I needed an injection. I said, "Those hurt!" I was dreading it, but much to my surprise, it didn't hurt like the other one. He listened to my concerns and helped me with my problem.
