I had a total left knee replacement on Wednesday, December 11th and walked out of the hospital 24 hours later. I’d had a right knee replacement 6+ years ago but this one, performed by Dr. Shukla, was way better. I walked better and faster and with way less pain. My opioid use consisted of 5 OxyContin and 12 tramadol. Physically I am at the very least 10 days ahead of my previous knee surgery. Dr. Shukla is easy to talk with, spends time ensuring you understand the procedure and the ROC staff have been helpful.

Dr. Shukla replaced both of my hips within a year. I have dysplasia, so it wasn't an easy job. I came out with even leg length for the first time in my life. Now I can walk, hike, do yoga, cross country ski, and dance again! I have no pain and am stronger and more balanced than I was before. It is truly a miracle. He is kind, compassionate, and honest. His assistant, Davis is excellent and does remarkable plastic surgery stitching! The PTs at Reno Orthopedic Clinic were also awesome!

So impressed with Dr. Shukla. He took time to make sure all my concerns were covered. He had also thoroughly reviewed my charts ahead of time and knew about my pre-existing conditions ahead of time. It was obvious he had done his homework so he could make good recommendations moving forward. So confident with his care. I really felt like a person getting care in his office. Thank you!!!

I had bilateral total knee replacements 9 weeks apart. Initially I chose Dr. Shukla because he does minimally invasive total knee arthroplasty. After my first office visit with him and his staff (Davis Ayers PA-C and Danielle Medical Assistant) I knew I would be able to talk to them all and feel that we would be a "team" in my care during and after surgery. This was true. Dr. Shukla has a great bedside manner and LISTENED to what my concerns or questions were and answered them honestly.

At 47, after suffering with constant hip pain for many years, I considered my next options. Dr.Shukla gave me good information and answered my questions honestly. He is warm and kind and most importantly- capable. I had a total hip replacement in July and am now back to 90% function with very little pain. The surgery and recovery went well- and though I was impatient with a perceived slow healing-Dr. Shukla reminded me that it is pretty amazing to get on a paddle board 3 months after a thp????

My husband started seeing Dr Shukla in Carson City a couple of years ago. He'a quite young to have needed a hip replacement but It's changed our lives dramatically. Even though we live within walking distance to the former practice we drive to Reno to see Dr. Shukla. He's the best. The staff at ROC are amazing as well. Danielle, Aria and the records staff have treated us so well. Our experience with Dr Shukla and the staff at ROC couldn't have been any better. They actually care. It's awesome

Would never recommend this doctor. He did a right hip replacement on me in june of 2015. Now right leg is longer than the left which in turn has created even worse problems with my back problems. Also still have pain in my hip which the replacement was suppose to eliminate. He also left me in unbeliveable pain during post op recovery. His compassion is non-existant. He could care less about the post-op problems I was and still am having. Be aware.

Dr. Shukla replaced both of my hips and both knees. He is very thorough, easy to talk to, and a skilled surgeon. I went through a lot of doctors before I found Dr Shukla, and I am very pleased with the results of my surgeries.
