Dr Carter has been excellent throughout my care. I’ve seen him for multiple problems related to a genetic syndrome. He’s operated on me several times and I’m in the process of scheduling another. I’ve had a great experience with Dr Carter as my surgeon.

I had knee surgery 5 weeks ago and I can already straighten my leg completely straight. I am walking pretty good now. Done away with my walker in 10 days and took no more pain pills after two weeks. I only needed one-half my knee fixed and I am very happy with the results
