Very good, I was well informed about what was going to happen and what to prepare for. I have not had any issues with the surgery and feel great. Had other issues that the staff (Laura) helped me with and went out of her way to make sure I was taken care of. Would recommend Dr. Christensen to anyone having a hip replacement.

Dr. Christensen did a total hip replacement on me 5 years ago. I highly recommend him! Yesterday I saw Matt, the PA for some issues with my left leg. I was very impressed with him too!

Dr. Christiansen corrected a previous botched total knee replacement for me. He is very caring and tries to figure out the problem quickly. It does take some time to get in to see him but it is worth it. He knows what he is doing and I... Dr. Christiansen corrected a previous botched total knee replacement for me.
