      Dr Horan explained what was going on with my knee and discussed ways we could put off knee replacement for a least a few more years. Very comfortable with him as a physician.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
