1 year follow-up after my right knee surgery. Did an x-ray again to check on my knee replacement to make sure everything is ok.

I have been under the care of Dr. Gardner for my ankle and most recently a shoulder injury. I value his opinion and expertise and have received excellent care from him and his staff. Dr. Gardner takes the time to listen to your concerns and explains diagnosis and treatment options clearly.

He replaced my hip 2 years ago and I’m still on a walker. Can’t feel my thigh. Still in pain. It did not improve my mobility.

Dr. Gardner is tops in my opinion. He performed total hip replacement on both of my hips over six years ago. I value his expertise and recommend him, highly. He also performed knee replacement on both of my husband's knees over five years ago with excellent results.

Dr. Gardner was my surgeon for a total hip replacement. He is an excellent surgeon. His willingness to actually listen to what I had to say, my concerns and my fears about have surgery was a pleasant surprise since I had seen other orthopedic surgeons about my hip and don't feel they cared anything about how I was feeling. While I hope I never have orthopedic surgery again, I definitely will go to Dr. Gardner should the need arise. I was very impressed with his office staff too.

Dr. Gardner is absolutely wonderful. He takes his time with each appointment and addressed all questions. He replaced both of my hips and after I was home, he called to check on me to make sure everything was going okay. I feel like he truly cares about his patients. I highly recommend Dr. Gardner!!
