Dr. Damron did a bi-lateral total knee replacement at Upstate University Hospital in 2009 or 2010. Time flies when you can walk without pain so I am unsure of the year. In my book, he walks on water. What is great is I can now walk comfortably on land. Thank-you Dr. Damron.

I recently saw Dr. Damron for soft tissue tumor. He is absolutely everything you wanted from a surgeon. Precise, confident and trustful. People who don't want to wait a little bit longer to see Dr. Damron, find somebody else. But I would wait what ever it takes to see him.
