I've had Dr VonGillern for 3 surgeries on my hands. All have had perfect results with full use regained and no scaring. I recently had a total knee replacement and the rehab is going along nicely. I have surgical pain but the debilitating bone pain is gone. I would 100% recommend Dr VonGillern and his staff as they give excellent care with top quality results.

I like the fact he doesn't always go straight to surgury, but tries to find the least evasive solution.

So thankful that Dr. VonGillern was on call 20+ years ago when I had my accident. I wouldn’t trust anyone else but Hume to perform all the necessary surgeries and eventually a replacement! I honestly can’t say enough positive things about him and his sevices
