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.

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!

Excellent We are both around 60 years of age and while we have been healthy (knock wood) most of our lives, we have still seen a fair amount of doctors and their staff. This is by far the friendliest and most competent office we have ever been in. You are greeted with a smile by a wonderful staff, not a vacant stare or rude comment anywhere. Each person we interacted with knew their job and answered our questions quickly. Dr. Huff is so impressive, looks you in the eye and doesn’t make you feel like he is in a hurry to see his next patient. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. Jeff has been putting off knee replacement surgery for a lot of years and when we left Dr. Huff’s office he told me that after meeting with Dr. Huff, he felt good about having the surgery and wasn’t nearly as nervous as he was before going in.

Dr. Huff is extremely professional and precise. He has been my family’s orthopedic surgeon for about 16 years. We trust him implicitly especially because he gets us back on our feet quickly so we can pursue sports and fitness goals. Dr. Huff is extremely professional and precise.

I prefer him cause he has a sense of humor and is very straight forward. Also the fact that he tries to avoid surgeries if possible, which is a relief if therapy can fix the issue and get me back to work.

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
