Two years ago Dr. Karlsson replaced my hip. I had unforeseen complications but Dr. Karlsson was excellent! His surgical skills and caring manner literally gave me my life back. Six weeks ago he performed a total knee replacement on me. Here I am six weeks later and I've already surpassed where the "charts" say I should be with my recovery. Dr. Karlsson's surgical skills, caring and supportive manner are huge factors in my recovery. I highly recommend Dr. Karlsson. I trust him with my life

Dr. Karlsson replaced my left knee 3 years ago and I have been very satisfied. I highly recommend Dr. Karlsson and will be having my other knee replaced in the near future. I feel extremely comfortable with him and his staff.

I have had two surgeries with Dr. Karlsson and have had wonderful outcomes with both. He's great at explaining things such as what to expect and any follow up. He never rushed into surgery which I felt comfortable with and let me decide when the time was good I never felt rushed at any of my appointments. I feel that he's a good listener.. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in a position facing joint replacement. His staff is also great.

Dr. Karlsson. Thank you, Thank you. It's been six months since my new knee, 4 months since I returned to work and it's been fantastic. I'm pain free. It was a pleasure, start to finish, working with you and your whole staff. Thanks again. Sincerely, Don Crabbe

I was a workers comp patient treated by Dr. Karlsson. I felt Dr. Karlsson trusted what I told him and he wasn't swayed by the workers comp insurance company and their nurse case manager and the workers comp doctors. Dr. Karlsson received the approval for all necessary treatment and the workers comp carrier accepted his rating of my impairment from the injuries I received at my place of employment. Dr. Karlsson is a true professional in his field.
