      I had a total knee replacement done by Dr. Ferro ten days ago. I saw four doctors and they all diagnosed me needing a complete replacement. I heard nothing but good about him so I scheduled him to do the surgery. Ten days later the recovery is great and the surgery went well. However, I work up in horrific pain. A spasm in my back. He not only listened to me and what was going on, but he stood there and massaged the spasm and put hot compresses on it until it stopped. Best doctor ever.

      Dr. Ferro was able to do total hip replacement in the out-patient clinic so that I was able to go home the same evening. He is kind, gentle and has excellent bedside manner. His staff is kind and helpful.
      in Arroyo Grande, CA |
      He is so talented and knowledgeable. He is able to save the ligament with his state of the art knee replacement. Ive seen him for numerous trigger finger repairs. He is so humble when he cares for my fingers. Im so impressed with his care no matter how simple or complicated the procedure might be.
      in Bakersfield, CA |
      Bad experience. Two different diagnoses between Dr. Ferro and his PA, Greg Stevens. I was diagnosed by the PA to have shoulder impingement syndrome and prescribed physical therapy by the PA to treat the impingement. Upon seeing Dr. Ferro (for the first time in five months of care at the practice) he (Dr. Ferro) told me that he did not know why I believed I had shoulder impingement syndrome and that, in fact I have degenerative arthritis and he believed physical therapy to be witchcraft. BE WARY!

      Dr. Ferro repaired a meniscus tear in 1996. It has been a long time since the surgery, but I remember that Dr. Ferro and his staff were very professional, friendly, and caring. They followed up with me after the surgery an were there to answer all my questions. Since the surgery and after Dr. Ferro's instructions to avoid high impact sports for about a year, I have completed one full marathon and over 30 half marathons, all in the last 10 years. Needless to say, the surgery was a success.

      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.
