Both knees replaced. Great experience. Great doctor & staff. Great Hospital.
in Waco, TX |
Knee replacement 4/13/17. Today is 5/1/17. I find myself forgetting I just had major surgery. I'm a 56 yo female, 280 lbs, referred by my pcp, who has referred to him for 25 yrs, no problems. I was treated exceptionally well by staff and the hospital people too. Never better. I did/am doing the PT work and walking a lot. Very little pain past the first week. Cant wait to get other knee done soon. I'm so glad to have found these people who I highly recommend! Amazing results.
