I made an appointment prior to surgery in February 2018 to ask Dr. Beaver to do a full knee replacement not a partial which is his specialty of the practice. It was my 4th knee surgery. He did his partial. I went back 8 times post op and told him something was very wrong. He dismissed me 8 times. In September 2018 I wrote him a long letter detailing the pain and limitations I had and asked for his help. Zero response. I had a second opinion in October from head of Ortho at Wake Forest. He said I needed a full knee replacement ASAP. In January, less that 1 year of having the partial, I had the full knee replacement. I was better at two months than the entire year after Partial surgery. Thank Dr. Beaver for all your concern and lack of response. I have nothing good to say about him and only gave one star because I had to do it to rate him. I have nothing but great things to say about my second surgery and Dr.

Dr. Beaver is so personable. He was quite willing to answer any and all of my questions. When he replaces my hip and helps me walk again, I'll give him all of the stars in the sky.

Dr Beaver did a kneecap replacement on me. He has also done a total knee replacement on my wife. We did our research before we chose Dr Beaver. He has traveled the world teaching his techniques to other orthopedic surgeons. Dr Beaver has also helped design the implants for the knee replacement. He not only is one of the best in his field, he is also a super friendly guy! I must mention the quick recovery period. His knowledge and techniques are, in my opinion, much less invasive and recovery period is quicker than I have seen in other patients, (no staples!). I would highly recommend Dr Beaver to anyone looking to have a hip or knee replacement.
