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

Dr Huff did a total knee replacement for me in January 2018. He and all of his staff both at the hospital and during follow up visits were extremely efficient, polite, and accommodating to any concern I expressed. His physician assistant called me long distance upon finding a concern in my initial CAT scan that was a serious concern requiring abdominal surgery and a delay for the knee surgery. He was most concerned until my surgery was completed and quickly rescheduled knee surgery. I traveled

Dr. Huff is a very personable and friendly orthopedist yet professional. He helped ease my fear of getting knee injections for severe pain and now my knees don’t hurt nearly as much. Highly recommend his services!

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.

My pain was unbelievable. I couldn't walk any distance at all. I dreaded the surgery, the associated pain and recovery. Dr. Huff did a total knee replacement and straightened my leg. Within two weeks, I was walking without any assistance. The pain from the surgery and recovery was nothing. Today I can walk any where I want and as long as I want without pain. THANK YOU Dr. Huff.
