Default Orthopedic Recommendation

Any suggestions? May be looking at knee replacement. I'd appreciate the names of orthos where you've been happy. Thanks.

There is a wealth of information on TOTV. Do a search on "knee surgeon".

I myself would only be comfortable in choosing a surgeon who has done LOTS of them, not just a few. You can find that on: Florida Health Finder On the main page, click on "Compare," click on "Physicians", click on "Total Hip and Knee Replacements", then "All Physicians."

Some of the ones in this area who do many each year are:
Duke, 456
Kerina 251
Locker 140
Nyugen 414.

The period accounted for is from April 2013 through March 2014.

FWIW, Dr. Duke 'celebrated' his 1000th knee replacement recently.
