I love Dr. Swann and Caleb. They have taken such good care of me! It is four months after a total knee replacement, and I can hike over 5 miles, and I am losing weight. I have full range of motion and reflection, and I am improving more every day. I would not be where I am today without them. I was very nervous about getting this procedure done and had gone to several physicians to get opinions. I found myself so comfortable with Dr. Swann from the first time I met him. I also love the fact he uses robotics to ensure a great outcome. This helped me feel really comfortable! I would recommend anyone I knew or did not know to them as I think they are one of the best around!

I had my left hip replaced yesterday and I’m doing great. Dr Swan and the team at Porter hospital were great. I appreciated the fact that Dr Swan called me at home yesterday evening to assure me that the surgery went very well. He included the details on my implant telling me that what was used in my right hip 3 yrs ago by him was also used in my left hip so that I have a matching pair. I would recommend Dr Swan to anyone considering hip surgery.

Clear, concise, clearly knows his science and connects that knowledge with an understanding of my lifestyle and goals. He was spot on with assessing a complicated hip situation. He isn’t verbose or warm-and-fuzzy, but told me exactly what I needed to hear and respond thoughtfully to all of my questions. He, his PA (Caleb), and his MA (Vanessa) make a great team. Caleb is also extremely knowledgeable and precise. During the pre-surgery evaluations, he caught a concern on my x-rays that was unnoticed by 2 surgeons from other practices.

Dr. Swann and Caleb both performed the PAO procedure on me. First week was rough but exactly a week out, I felt awesome! Pain 3-4/10 at worst; 0 at rest. Going on 4 weeks and still the same outcome except 1-2 pain level at worst now; 0 at rest. I do believe with his choice of a very minimal invasive anterior incision approach is why my recovery has been a breeze. I HIGHLY recommend this surgery with Dr. Swann! Four weeks out, I can already say; this surgery has been life-changing. Thank you, Dr. Swann, Caleb and staff!

Dr. Swann is very professional and is highly recommended by colleagues. I had issues with my initial hip replacement and was referred to Dr. Swann by my original surgeon. He performed a total hip-revision and I’m feeling amazing! I also had him do my other hip!!! He’s excellent, and I highly recommend Dr.Swann!!

Ryan Wilson – Apr 30, 2021
What a great experience! 35 days ago Dr. Swann did a partial knee replacement and my world has already changed greatly. Already doing short walks and bike rides and golf/hiking are just a few short weeks away. And while Dr. Swann is world-class in my book, the team around him is equally great. His PA (Caleb Jennings) made the entire process understandable and I understood my role in preparation and recovery as well as theirs. The office team handled my calls, scheduling's and concerns with direct and timely efficiency. Definition of great customer care! Bottom line - I'd be hard pressed to find a better doctor, PA and team to handle my knee replacement.

Dr. Swann performed my PAO surgery on my left hip. For such a big surgery he has been great throughout the whole process, reassuring me and listening to all of my concerns. He is knowledgeable and cares about his patients and what he does. I would recommend anyone having surgery to correct hip dysplasia go to him!

From start to finish, Dr. Swann was top-notch. The thoroughness of Dr. Swann and his staff was unbeatable. I had two partial knee replacements done four weeks apart, and I am healing perfectly. There is no other doctor I would recommend when it comes to orthopedics. #successwithswann

My experience with Dr Swann and his staff was excellent! The team was able to explain what was going to happen [in layman’s terms] during my surgery. I woke up from my surgery and did not suffer any nausea. My pain has been minimal with the prescriptions. It was worth it to travel from Austin, TX to Denver, CO to have Presley perform the surgery. I feel confident in the outcome and will recommend him to family and friends

Dr Swann replaced my right hip in December 2020. My surgery and recovery couldn’t have been better. I am so pleased with the results! I’m still having problems with my left hip which was not done by Dr Swann. So I will make an appointment for him to check that one out as well.

Dr. Swann replaced my right knee for the third time (after another doctor screwed it up). The surgery lasted five hours. My femur bone shattered during surgery. Recovery was good until 8 weeks post op when I developed muscle spasticity. He then had to manipulate my knee to help reduce the muscle spasms. The recovery has been very slow. Dr. Swann remained supportive but always honest with my treatment options . He offered to share my case with other collogues to receive input to help my particular problem. My case was complicated from the beginning. Dr. Swann has always been honest and up front with me since my first appointment in August 2017. He never made any false promises. Dr. Swann remained committed to helping me heal so I could return to my favorite outdoor activities. Any time I needed to make an appointment I never had to wait more than a few days or a week at most to see him. I'd recommend Dr. Swann to anyone. He's an excellent surgeon.
