Patient Comments (4)
in Austin, TX |
Dr. Welsh was very informative and we talked about my options. He did a great job on my knee and could not be more pleased with my progess after surgery.
in Austin, TX |
I can't say enough good things about Dr Welsh and his great Staff. I found him while searching the internet and for someone to fix a torn meniscus and damaged ligament in my right knee. I had a great experience with the surgical center that Dr Welsh uses also. He proved to me that he deserves 5 stars because of the great results from the knee surgery he performed.
in Brentwood, TN |
With a knee prob, I saw 2 other ortho drs, who recommended cortisone injs until I couldn't take it - then total knee replacement. Dr. Welsh spent a generous amt of time with me, reviewing my MRI and Xrays with me. He offered several options, none were a total knee for 20+ years, esp since that particular joint was in good condition. The options offered were directly related to the prob with my knee, specifically. It is also obvious, he/staff sincerely care.

Kind, empathetic, GREAT listener, resourceful, careful but knows when to act - hands down, my first choice for orthopedic care.
