I have had two knee surgeries and my husband had his knee and shoulder done by Dr. Fitzgibbons. He is professional and the experience at Front Range Orthopedics Surgery Center was as good as can be expected for surgery.
in Longmont, CO |
I had two knee replacement surgeries with Dr. Fitzgibbons in the period of three months. They were performed professionaly with no complications. My recovery has been rapid and relatively pain free. My physical therapists say that my recovery is way ahead of the curve. I can't be more pleased with the results.
