Dr. Gardiner did my bilateral total knee replacement surgery Aug. 10, 2015. He gave me all the information regarding my procedure prior to surgery and I found him to be such a good listener, very patient, but realistic. I had no complications at St. Luke's South, liked all my nurses and rehab. I would recommend Dr. Gardiner to my own family members. He was great!

Dr Gardiner replaced my knee. I always felt he had plenty of time to answer any questions that I had, and I was apprehensive about the procedure. I had full confidence in Dr Gardiner before I went into surgery and I was not disappointed. He did a beautiful job, and four weeks later I was walking without a cane and with no pain. He is not only very personable, but he is a wonderful surgeon. I've also had comments on what a neat job he did on the incision.
