Patient Comments (5)
in Minneapolis, MN |
I visited Dr. Knowlan because of acute pain in my right knee. A year ago, another orthopedic took a look at it and concluded that nothing could be done. He said, "you're in your 50s and you're just gonna have to live with the pain." But last October, I decided to get a second opinion. When I described my symptoms to Dr. Knowlan, he knew instantly what was wrong–Plica Syndrome. He scoped my knee the next week and now, four months later, the knee is strong and pain-free. Pretty amazing.

Dr. Knowlan did my father in laws knee replacements along with a number of other public safety professionals. I was referred to him after an injury to my knee and also saw hip after having hip pain. He found the problems immediately unfortunately, I was unable to have him fix the issues due to not needing a replacement but rather arthroscopic surgery. Great doc, down to earth and easy to speak with...not stuffy!

I had a hip which had to be replaced and when I consulted with Dr. Knowlan, I felt assured that the surgery would be fairly easy and successful. It was. I had a quick recovery and went back to my life. I would not hesitate to see Dr. Knowlan if I ever have another orthopedic issue.

Made a post op error starting a cascade that ended up leaving me with chronic pain. He doesn't know if I ever walked again. One time made me wait til the last appointment time, despite the fact I was on time for my 3:45 pm appointment. Then was putting his coat on and packing his brief case, obviously not interested in my care. He was done dealing with me.
