Patient Comments (2)
Worcester, MA |
I had my knee replacement surgery with Dr. Balcom he is a good surgeon, as long as you don't have any problems with recovery. I'm still struggling everyday with straightness and being able to bend and the pain I still have is very bad and unacceptable. Unfortunately I'm the patient in the low percentage that has a lot of problems.

Dr. Balcom has done both knee replacements for me and my husband is scheduled later this month to have one of his knees done. I would highly recommend him and his team to anyone who needs knee replacement.
