Dr. Ward replaced both of my knees at the same time. My results have been remarkable. I walk without pain now for the first time in over thirty five years. One I got past the first few weeks it was far easier than I expected. I definitely recommend Dr. Ward to all.

Dr. Ward did my ACL reconstruction and has done injections on the other knee. He is the best Dr. I have ever dealt with. Not just ortho related but honestly the best Dr. I have had an experience with. He is obviously good at what he does in regards to surgery and what not but is also very personable and easy to communicate with. Too many doctors, especially good ones, are intimidating, or arrogant, but Dr. Ward is far from that. Thank you Dr. Ward!
