Knee

The knee is the largest joint in the body and one of the most easily injured. It's also one of the most common joints replaced.

The simple act of getting out of bed in the morning can be painful for a person with an injured knee. Whether you're suffering from a past injury or from the gradual wear and tear of arthritis, knee pain can make it difficult for you to maintain an active lifestyle

Satisfied Patient

He is the best! I’m completely satisfied with my bilateral knee replacement that was done in 2001. Yesterday I had X-rays and my knees are still perfect! He has a compassionate bedside manner and takes a keen interest in his patients. He is the best! I’m completely satisfied with my bilateral knee replacement that was done in 2001.

This was my first total knee replacement by Dr. Vasicek but certainly not my first visit. Each time that I have visited BGO I have been treated with the utmost respect and concern for my health and welfare. Dr. Vasicek and her associates perform at the highest of professionalism. As for my knee replacement, the surgery went exceptionally well as is the post surgery rehabilitation. I would recommend Dr. Vasicek to anyone requiring orthopedic help.

She listened to my answers and questions and was very caring to any issues I had. I have been to this clinic before for surgeries and therapy and would recommend them to anyone with orthopedic needs. Top notch medical network compared to the local medical group in my area, who haven’t helped at all, and getting an appointment was easy and urgent.

He has been following up my knees since he replaced the first one 20 years ago and they are still going strong. He has always been concerned with my health and well being, a fine doctor and human being

Dr. Christiansen really gave me a new lease on life when he performed my total knee replacement. I am now able to do so many things I love to do but thought were lost to me.
