Dr Yates replaced my right knee and now my left knee is giving out. He still shows concern about new and not so good knee.

April 24, 2017

Dr. Yates replaced my left knee 6 months ago. The results have been excellent. My knee pain was very very bad due to an existing condition. Now I have returned to my normal activity in a way I never thought possible. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of Dr Yates and am reminded of how very grateful I am that he was the surgeon who was recommended to me aND that I used for my knee replacement.Besides being a great surgeon Dr. Yates is kind and funny and never appears to be in a hurry with my appointments.
