      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Dr. Comfort says...

      I would say that the most unique feature of my practice is the level of experience that I bring to the patient. With over 20 years of orthopedic surgical experience and the performance of thousands of  joint surgeries including knee and shoulder arthroscopy, arthroscopic  rotator cuff repair, arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament repair as well as several thousand total knee replacement and total hip replacement procedures.  I have seen and managed just about any condition of hip, knee  and shoulder joints. That experience also results in more rapid recovery and low rates of complications with these surgeries.
