Dr.Schoifet and his entire staff made my total knee replacement, a very pleasant experience for a 77 year old male. I was up and walking in three hours, climbed mock stairs in 5 hours. Returnrd home the next day. My return follow up in 2 weeks , I was using a cane for support. Iwas so pleased I recommend Dr. Schoifet to others in my community, 5 in number and they all had the same excellent results. Vincent Perito

I recently had a total right knee replacement performed by Dr. Schoifet. I am 81 years old and somewhat overweight so I felt I had to be realistic about recovery time. I have been amazed by my quick recovery. I was home in two days, walking with a walker. By two weeks and one day I was walking with a cane and was able to drive -- right knee replacement. It is now four was post-surgery and I use my cane only occasionally to insure stability when walking outdoors. Amazing result.
