Risks of Knee Replacement
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.
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.
Excellent physician. Cares for his patients and provides great professional service to them. Would recommend highly!
I cannot believe how much better my leg & hip feel after just having the cortisone injected today! Thanks to all involved in my procedure this date!❣️🎃
