Patient Comments (4)
in Spring Hill, FL |
Recently I had both knees replaced within a nine week period by Dr. Fitz and I can't say enough about how professional he and his staff was to me both in the pre-op and post-op phases. Dr. Fitz is an excellent orthopedic surgeon who truly cares for his patients. He stays abreast of any latest methods/technology that will help his patients recover from major surgery with the least amount of pain.

Dr. Fitz replaced my knee. I could ask for a better outcome. Highly recommended.
in Brookline, MA |
Dr. Fitz and his entire team are superb. Staff and service at Faulkner during and after the surgery were also great. Recovery from my customized knee replacement was as easy as major surgery can be. I left the hospital the day after surgery with minimal pain!
in Providence, RI |
I had to have my knee replacement after two years of this MD trying to assure me nothing was wrong.
