Very pleased with my surgery. First time with Dr.Christensen. My mother has used him several times and was very pleased.
My total knee surgery was a great success!
Dr. Christensen the best for hip replacement. He has done both of mine with no complications and little pain. I would and have recommended him for hip surgery.
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.
Aside from being a phenominal surgeon he shows great compassion for his patients. For anyone needing a knee or hip, you will not find a better surgeon.
I would highly recommend Dr Christensen. He is kind and compassionate to his patients.
Dr. Christensen is amazing! He's so caring & the best surgeon I've ever had!
For. Christendom is great. Spends time explains knee replacement surgery. His PA is equally great at explaining things.
He is an excellent surgeon. I have had two knee replacements and done great.
