Dr T did a great job replacing my acl and repairing my bucketed meniscus. His staff took care of my every need. Great job all and thanks. Colt Ake! Kia kaha

Is as been 7 month since my surgery and I still can't walk without limping and pain.

I have had 6 knee surgeries over the years and Dr Tarlow has been the best, most proficient and approachable surgeon amongst all of these surgeries. He was direct with me when he needed to counsel me to change course. He was clear on the objectives and what needed to happen for full recovery. It has been two months since my knee reconstruction and it is the best and most smooth feeling my knee has been in 20 years. You will be lucky to have him AND his great staff take care of you.

Dr. Tarlow was nothing short of a miracle worker. After turning me away, referring me to physical therapy, years before he gained my trust as a surgeon who was not stereotypically knife happy. After a serious motorcycle accident, Dr. Tarlow saved my knee from amputation and that's not an exaggeration; I tore my ACL, PCL, LCL, MCL and medial Meniscus in addition to compressing my tibial head. Thanks to Dr. Tarlow's knowledge and skill I avoided replacement am back to running without ANY pain.

Total Knee Replacement outpatient surgery. Dr. Tarlow's emphasis on pre-surgery readiness including achieving a specific BMI through weight loss was key to success. Excellent experience.

Dr. Tarlow is amazing. His depth of knowledge and cutting edge techniques will insure you get the best treatment available. He is commonly used by the best sports medicine doctors for knee replacements and complex cases (or those in the gray area like mine). I had ACL and ALL reconstruction with Dr. Tarlow recently. So far, I am on the mend and looking forward to an active life once again.
