Knee Patient - Total Knee Replacement

Knee Patient – Total Knee Replacement: I came to Dr. Foad in the mid 90’s with a torn meniscus in my right knee that I had suffered while playing basketball.  I was truly impressed with my whole experience with Dr. Foad from examination, diagnosis and having the arthroscopic surgery.  He took his time explaining the options that I had with the pro’s and con’s of each in terminology that I could relate to. After surgery he sat down and showed me pictures of what he repaired and what physical therapy would be like. I have had two other meniscus arthroscopic surgeries on both knees from sports related injuries with the same genuine care from Dr. Foad over the years.

Then in 2014, I went to Dr. Foad for a potential knee replacement surgery. He explained my options of total or partial knee replacements, along with how long each was projected to last. He gave me his professional opinions, but allowed me to decide what worked best for me. Dr. Foad explained the whole total knee replacement process from day of surgery, time in hospital and through rehab. His compassion for making me feel comfortable with the whole process made all my apprehension of the surgery go away. He was involved with every step of my physical therapy to the point that I returned to a normal pain free life with full range of motion. I was completely satisfied with the whole experience that I had my other knee replaced and carpal tunnel surgery on both wrists in 2016 with the same excellent results.

Dr. Foad and his staff have made me feel as if I am part of their office family. I would and have recommended Dr. Foad to my family and friends for their orthopaedic care.
