Dr Ballard is the most amazing individual and medical professional that I have that I have had the privilege to meet. He prays with you before the surgery and prays for you during your recovery. He is an outstanding Christian and a credit to the medical profession. I am scheduled for surgery on my other knee in a few weeks and I have the utmost confidence in Dr Ballard.(he’s the only one I want)

I came to Dr. Ballard seeking help after a defective knee replacement-from another surgeon. He was an excellent diagnostician and an extremely skilled surgeon. I needed and had knee revision with Dr. Ballard with EXCELLENT results.

My dog knocked me down and destroyed my left hip. Dr. Ballard’s incision was admired by the entire Siskin medical staff. It’s beautiful! My hip hasn’t hurt much either.

He is a wonderful doctor. Very professional I could not have asked for better. He did a complete knee replacement on my right knee. I would highly recommend him. One of his great qualities is he is a Christian and he doesn’t mind praying with you.

Dr. Ballard replaced my mother’s hip after two surgeons said that they wouldn’t operate because there was so much damage. She is 86. After six weeks, she is walking pain free. It has changed her life and we can’t recommend him highly enough.

I was referred to Dr. Ballard by a church friend who is a patient of his. I already knew I would need knee replacements from a previous doctor. From the time he entered the room, he was compassionate and concerned about my problem and how it was affecting my life. He didn't rush through the appointment and he answered all my questions and concerns. After going through my history with my knee problems, he didn't hesitate about doing the replacements. He really does care about his patients.
