Dr. W. Thomas Gutowski is absolutely outstanding, in terms of surgical skills restoring hips and knees, and in terms of human interaction. He really cares, in this era of nearly industrial medical care. He has restored me to my hiking/birding/kayaking life in 2011 and 2019, hip 1 and hip 2. He is as enthused as I over these vital pursuits. He would be embarrassed by this review process. Those who have been blessed by his surgical miracles call him "The King of Hips and Knees." His entire office is alive, friendly, calls you by name, remembers your medical and life situations, besides being notoriously prompt!

Dr. Gutowski is friendly AND knowledgeable. He asks respectful questions and explains his findings and opinions clearly. I have recommended that a friend have him replace her knee (which she did and was very satisfied) and will continue to recommend him. He is a great combination of skill and kindness -- the best!!!
