in San Antonio, TX |
I needed bilateral knee replacement, Dr Pontius assured me all was going to be fine. I had surgery on Sept 7 2016 and surgery was a sucess. Intense pain for about 15 days but it was control with some strong narcotics. Is been 6 weeks since my surgery and each day I am better and stronger. Dr Pontius is an angel, I was so scared before having the surgery. I will be able do so many activies that I could not do before, I owe all of this to this wonderful Doc and all the staff of the St Luke
