Default Knee doctor

I am a new resident (January, 2011) and I need a knee doctor. I know it is an orthopist but I can't spell it! Can anyone recommend a doctor?

Dr. David Ethier on Rt. 301 in Belleview. Did 2 surgeries on me and awaiting a third one in September. He is wonderful. Does his surgeries in Munroe Regional Med. Ctr. in Ocala (rated safest hosp in Fl).

Hubby uses Dr. Cowin too and he has been great. I go with him to the appts. and the only thing I would say is have your questions written down....he is a very busy man. Kind of a quirky guy, but very knowledgeable.

Dr Cowin did a surgical repair on my broken ankle a couple of years ago. I walk great now. Never a problem. I met an orthopedic surgeon in the pool on day shortly after my surgery. I was practicing walking in the water. He said I would never walk the same again. He was wrong!

Default knee surgery

lynn is always a comedienne! i had my wrist fixed at tri-county orthopedic but i went to a seminar on knee surgery by a dr. steve Nguyen in orlando and maitland and i decided if i ever needed surgery i would use him...he developed a less invasive procedure...check it out on www.freedom-knee.com
his number is 407-355-3120. hope you don't need surgery!

by the way, his card says Orthopaedic....the fancy spelling!

I use Dr. Thomas in that same group, but I go to the Leesburg office. I think she is brilliant and very easy to work with. She has been giving me cortisone shots, rather than any surgery, and it has been working very well. I like a lot, she's very pragmatic and will give you alternative solutions to surgery. My kinda woman!!!!

Has anyone had surgery by Dr. Monique Grey? I've received the suppartz shots in my knee, but now face the ordeal about surgery. Would appreciate any input.
