I had partial knee replacement surgery and after just 5 weeks I was already meeting my 8 week goals and in no pain when walking! Dr. Watters is extremely good and easy to talk to. He listens to you and gives you the best advice possible. I am happy to say my experience with knee replacement was much, much better than I anticipated. Thank you Dr. Watters for a superb job!!

I chose Dr. Watters because he had trained with an orthopaedic group in Denver, where I was from and in which I have tremendous confidence. Dr. Watters didn't let me down. He replaced both my hips and the results have been wonderful. He is skilled as a surgeon and as compassionate and supportive a medical practitioner as you can find. Everything he advised was right on the mark. He was accessible and always followed through. His assistant, Jennifer, is top drawer.

I had to have a total knee replacement in Dec. 2018. Dr. Tyler Watters was an excellent doctor. He told me up front what to expect, he took time to listen to my concerns. My surgery went well and he kept my family informed of what was going on the entire time. The day of surgery i was able to get up and walk. His aftercare was excellent. I would highly recommend Dr. Watters to anyone needing a knee replacement.

We were so very pleased with Dr. Watters. He did an outstanding job on my hip replacement in December 2018. He was very thorough in his explanation of the entire process of pre-op, surgery, and post. I also appreciated his bedside manner and professionalism. I am no longer in pain, and so very thankful to get my quality of life back. I also want to thank Jennifer, nurse, for always being kind and courteous during my treatment at the office. I would highly recommend this office for care.

Dr. Watters completed an anterior hip replacement for me October 2018. Needless to say I was very nervous but after meeting with Dr. Watters I felt much better. I am now 8 weeks out and feel 100% better. He is so caring and understanding , really takes time to listen and explains everything so you can understand. In the future I will need my right hip replaced and without question I will ask Dr. Watters. Dr. Watters and his staff are wonderful especially his assistant (Jenifer). Very sweet

I couldn't be more pleased with the results of my hip replacement. This was my first surgery. I was comfortable with Dr. Watters from my first meeting. My situation was fully explained in terms I understood and the proceedure went just as described. I am now, after six weeks and 6 therapy sessions, walking pain free and without assistance of a cane. Truly life changing! Thanks Tyler, Jennifer, and therapist Jean Olofson. It looks like I'll be back for the other side and there's no doubt who gets

I had a femoral neck stress fracture from running. Right away Dr. Watters let me know the seriousness of the injury and made sure I understood the consequences of putting weight on the leg. MRI and surgery were scheduled and performed promptly and he and Jennifer D. were great. After a 3 month recovery I’m back to normal. He’s a great Doctor and this being my first surgery he and his team made me feel at ease. I would recommend him to anyone with a hip injury. Thanks again.

Dr. Watters is simply the most competent, reachable, understanding and caring surgeon I have ever met. I've had 2 surgeries in my 70+ years and both were hip replacements performed by Dr. Watters this year (2018.) His bedside manner, care, willingness to spend as much time as necessary to leave the patient comfortable is beyond approach. He does not rush to judgement and is quite patient. Treats each question with respect and his explanations are comprehensive and understandable.

Dr. Waters performed a right hip replacement on me due to arthritis. He performed the surgery flawlessly. I was free of pain in my right hip immediately. I would recommend him without hesitation. He is extremely knowledgeable and skillful. I need surgery on my left hip as well, and I am doing it again without hesitation because I know I am in capable hands. Kudos to his staff also, especially Jennifer, his Clinical Assisstant.
