If you're looking for immediate surgery, he'll do it. Expects way too much way too soon tho.

Found out that my extended who had surgery, I have had enough of the lies and heart ache that they have suffered. It is one thing that surgery doesn't go as planned but it's another when a pt. fall was recorded and tests were run then given the thumbs up that everything is ok, then to find out a year later that an injury was actually sustained from the fall. For a year they were told that everything looked good by the doctor, to me this is the very definition of money hungry medicine!!!

Dr. Knetsche performed 2 serious surgeries on my son's cervical spine. He was wonderful, went the extra mile to see that every detail for his recovery, post op and follow up was covered! He is highly knowledgeable in his field, has many years experience, 5 in Germany and served this country in the medical field during 2 wars. When I later developed lower back problems, confirmed by my primary care Dr., I also choose Dr. Knetsche! I trust this Dr. 100%, I would highly recommend him to anyone!
