Dr. Stephen Cummings, MD
Dr. Cummings seeks to exhaust non-surgical treatments prior to pursuing surgical intervention. Many joint pains, even from severe arthritis can be adequately treated without surgery. Weight loss, medications, physical therapy, home exercise programs, various injections, bracing and at times assistive walking devices can enable patients to live active lifestyles and avoid surgery.

Dr Cummings did a revision of one knee from a partial to a total knee replacement and then 4 months later a total knee replacement of my other knee. I am now pain free and can not say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Cummings and his office. I never felt rushed when I asked questions and always felt Dr. Cummings really cared about any concern I might have. Whenever I had a question, and would call his office, I would get a call back that day. Great doctor and office staff!

I have been seeing an orthopedic for over 15 years, with the same doctor caring for my knees for 13. That doctor retired, so I started seeing Dr. Cummings. In January, 2017, Dr. Cummings did a total left knee replacement,for which I have had a good outcome. Dr. Cummings is very professional, yet has a friendly manner; he provides the high quality of care; and he counsels not rush into surgery until all non-surgery options have been exhausted.

I will return after my surgery experience and report...but I have rarely had any doctor spend as much time discussing my problem and the different surgical options available to me. He looks you in the eye, he speaks to you with compassion and understanding. He is "real" and I left his office with my surgery scheduled and in complete confidence of his knowledge and abilities, as well as his concern for MY feelings and well-being.

I had been seeing a different doctor for some time as my knees have hurt me for over 15 years with little to no results. This doctor told me knee surgery could not be performed until I was ready to retire from my electrician job. The first time I went to Dr Commings office, he exrayed me and said I was past due a double knee replacement. Without any additional wasted time, he began scheduling me for testing prior to surgery. It went well and I'm a new man.
