    I had a full knee replacement 1yr ago. The joint is working great. Other then developing a bakers cyst behind the surgical knee all went well. Dr Long has a great bed side manner. When my next knee is ready I will definitely be seeing him. I would recommend him to anyone that knees a knee replacement.

    Dr. Long has been treating me for several years now, for complicated joint issues. He listens, he is thoughtful, he is smart and kind, and always tuned in to what the patient really wants, and needs. He replaced one of my hips and all is well -- it was a bit complex -- EDS, aggressive RA, fibromyalgia are at work in my condition, plus a history of early dance, acrobatics, sports and gymnastics -- lots of injuries. I recommend him highly.

    Dr. Long performed my total knee replacement earlier this year. I was walking in rehab 2 days later. I am going to have another (my 9th) surgery in early 2016; arthroscopic Medial Patellofemoral Ligament surgery. I am quite happy with Dr. Long - and that I don't have to get another knee replacement in 10 years on my other knee. He is the best! He listens to my concerns and questions and gives me answers that are viable and real. I wouldn't see any other Doctor than Dr. Long.
