Dr. Gautsch's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Gautsch "A Hopkins educated surgeon, Dr. Gautsch is a widely sought pioneer of Outpatient Total Knee Replacement using computer assisted, minimally invasive, tissue sparing, fast-track recovery techniques. He has one of the largest experiences with these outpatient procedures in the Southeastern US, performed an outpatient Surgery Center in the North Nashville area built especially for it. Additionally, he has developed minimally invasive outpatient arthroscopic techniques for shoulder rotator cuff, ligament and tendon repair which are much stronger than traditional repair techniques, allowing minimal if any initial immobilization and a more rapid return to function."

Dr Gautsch kept my husband very informed of what to expect from the surgery. My husband felt he really informed him of his recovery instructions and what to expect as well. He is a nice guy, great manner at the bedside and made us feel very comfortable and included every step of the way.
