Risks of Knee Replacement
This was the second knee replacement that Dr Christensen has done. Both are so much better than before. Dr. Christensen is great at putting worries at ease before surgery.
Doctor C is highly focused, exchanges questions and answers easily and is a consummate clinical surgeon.
