The absolute "Best Knee Surgeon" in existence. A failed knee replacement recovery prior to Dr. Trousdale, which led my wife to be almost bed ridden for four years. A previous consensus of Amputation was the only answer until a visit to Dr. Trousdale. He performed the impossible, but 100% successful surgery & my wife walks with both legs today. He is a truly the best surgeon & never make a final decision on surgery until you visit him.

I had both my knee replaced by him, 10 weeks later I feel better than I did before surgery and it gets better every day. He is very confident and backed it up with results! Things have gone exactly how he said they would.

This man saved my life....by doing NOTHING! It wasn't my pleasure to know him, butt I'm alive because I did. He cared for me intensely and put my body in position to heal! If I was at a different facility with a different doctor, I would have had pelvis surgery and would have likely died. By doing very little, my life was spared.
