It took almost three months to finally meet the good Dr and I am not sorry for the wait. In the interest of expediting my surgery that I knew was eminent before my appt, he suggested I consider one of his colleagues perform the surgery. I trust in his expertise and will wait for his schedule to open .

He replaced my left knee 5 years ago. Excellent results. Now it just feels like a regular old real knee. I wouldn’t know it was plastic and titanium by the way it feels. His post-op instructions about what I shouldn’t do with the new knee were too vague for me, though, because I’m an active person. Overall satisfied, though, and would go back if and when the right knee gives out/up.

Dr. Fitz gave me my life back. He is a professional and explains everything he will be doing. I walked a few hours after having a total knee replaced. I thank you for all you have done for me. Two new knees in 16 months. I cannot wait to fuller recover to get back to a normal life.

I would not recommend. There is a level of gross incompetence with this practice. I had a terrible experience with Dr. Fitz, his office and the hospital that ended up costing me thousands of dollars. All this was because none of the above bothered to submit prior authorization to my insurance company. BEWARE

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 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!
