I like the fact that Dr. Howell customizes his knee joint replacements. I have heard first hand that recovery time is very quick. I saw him 2 years ago to have my left knee done. I was very impressed with his whole operation, scheduling, completion of forms before the appointment date, wait time, and his willingness to explain everything in detail. I put off the surgery at that time, but am re-scheduled to see him again this week and I expect great results.

Dr. Howell takes time to listen, explains every procedure and is is most professional. The website has videos and answers to every question a patient could possibly have. Also, a binder is given that includes all areas of the procedure and rehabilitation. It is most helpful and organized.
