Dr. Desman performed a total knee replacement. I was walking 1-2 miles per day at 4 weeks. The physical therapy department at South Florida Orthopedics was excellent

I had a total right hip replacement. Dr. Desman took all the time I needed explaining the procedure and the recovery. The knowledge he shared made having the surgery less stressful.

Total right knee replacement six weeks ago. Great results. Already back on the tennis court. I did the recommended therapy and feel that I made the right decision having Dr Desman preform the surgery.

Dr. Scott Desman is a very kind and knowledgeable Orthopaedic. He is very compassionate - even gives the cortisone shots HIMSELF! The level of care I receive is amazing and he is always willing to take the time to explain what is going on by showing my Xrays and pointing out what he is talking about. So happy to have him on my side for medical needs.

Dr. Desman and his whole crew are awesome! Very personable and caring. Had my right hip replaced 6 weeks ago after suffering for almost a year. Couldn't walk or do much of anything before the surgery. One hour after surgery, I was walking up and down the halls of the hospital, and only spent one night there. Have had no pain since then, walking and doing everything possible, just like years ago. I highly recommend Dr. Desman and his staff! They saved my life, or at least my sanity. Thank you!

Dr. Desman is my third experience with an orthopedic surgeon an is by far the best of the three. He is very caring, and thoroughly explained all aspects of my surgery without me asking. The follow up visits were also a very good experience. I will recommend him highly to all who may need his type of services.

Dr. Desman is fantastic. When I saw him for the first time, it was to see if my right hip needed a replacement. Yes was the answer & we scheduled it. Had him check out my right knee also as it was still painful after a replacement 3 yrs. ago. He did a check & said it was good. After hip surgery I still have pain in the knee but not as bad. I like the way he treats his patients, & am very comfortable with him. South Florida Orthopedics has the best doctors in town. Are you listening Cleveland Clinic. Please keep them with Martin & you!!!

Dr Desman is an outstanding surgeon. Knee replacement surgery was flawless. Was able to have surgery and home in same day. Knee replacement surgery with Dr Desman was so advanced in comparison to other knee replacement completed in Virginia - January 2017.
