Dr. Firestone was upfront with the procedure of a Total Knee Replacement. He laid out a timeline when certain things would happen post surgery, ie: walking, driving, back to work, little to no pain. He was exactly on schedule. Everyone that has been associated with this process, from the office staff, surgical center, surgery staff, in home PT and outside PT, has been top notch. I highly recommend a consultation with Dr. Firestone if you are in need of a TKR. Thanks for taking care of me. Jeff V

When my left hip needed replacement, the great experience I had when he replaced my right hip in 2012 made it an obvious choice. I was surprised to find that he had improved on the entire experience. I was in the hospital for a total of 30 hours. As with the first hip replacement, I do not know it is there. Since I am 80 years old, I appreciate each day without pain.

Best ortho Doctor for joint replacements. I have 2 knee replacements and 2 hip replacements and they are the best. I am 92 yrs old and they have been in for 16 years. I am eternally grateful for the surgeries and care I have received from Dr Firestone. Dorothy ONeal
