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.
