Most through and precise. He did my total knee replacement, and couldn't have done a better job. I highly recommend him.

I needed l. hip arthroplasty. Dr. Carn provided an excellent experience with the procedure. Yes, I did end up in rehab, but in my particular case it was a good thing for me. Dr. Carn knows exactly what he is doing, and I highly recommend him.
