  • Bi Lateral Partial Knee Replacement

“I initially spoke to Dr. Gardner about a double knee replacement in Sept. 2013. After the preliminary testing was done and Dr. Gardner reviewed the results with me, he felt that I was a good candidate for PARTIAL knee replacements instead of FULL knee replacements but would be prepared for full knee replacements if necessary. Although the final decision was up to me, I had full confidence and faith in Dr. Gardner's recommendation. Dr. Gardner performed surgery on Oct. 29, 2013 doing the partial knee replacements (Yes both at the same time!). One week later I was walking with assistance and three weeks after surgery I drove to his office for my followup visit. Everything was explained before hand with Dr. Gardner and his wonderful staff answering all of our questions. In fact, Dr. Gardner called me the night before my surgery to see if I had any other questions! Everything was set up in advance from the family physician visit, the hospital visit, the equipment needed in my home, the home therapist and the out patient followup, all handled by his office! Three months post surgery and I am feeling wonderful! I would highly recommend Dr. Gardner for your orthopedic surgery and urge you not to put it off! He will make sure you are free of pain before you know it!”

  • hip replacement

“When Dr. Gardner told me that he could fix my hip and alleviate the terrible pain I was experiencing, I was very skeptical. His manner was very caring. He even called me evening before the surgery to ask if I had any concerns. The operation was slightly delayed because I developed a rapid heart beat. Dr. Gardner postponed the operation for several hours to take tests to be sure that the operation would not be a danger for me. During this time he kept in contact with my wife to advise her the reason for the delay. The operation was a complete success as far as I am concerned. I can walk without all the pain I was having and am able to do things that were too difficult I am 87 and still have chronic back pain, but it is nothing compared to the hip pain. I know several people who are enduring serious hip pain but they are afraid of the surgery. I have highly recommended Dr. Gardner to them, and I hope they take advantage of his skills. I have been able to go back doing voluntary work at St.Paulâs Homes, and to meet with my friends for dining and playing cards. Since leaving the hospital, I have two follow-up appointments that were very reassuring. I have complete confidence in Dr. Gardner. ”

  • Shoulder pain

“Suffered with shoulder/neck pain for several weeks. Tried a chiropractor several times with no real improvement. Primary care physician had x-rays and MRI done and recommended Dr. Gardner. After injection and therapy I was able to get back the range of motion and am now pain free thanks to Dr. Gardner's help. I am now scheduling knee surgery with Dr. Gardner. He takes the time to talk with you and go over all options. Explains everything completely. I have complete trust and faith in Dr. Gardner. ”

  • Total Knee Replacement

“I had been limping for several years and recently couldn't sleep through the night. Dr. Gardner did a total knee replacement in December, 2012. I am 100% satisfied. I diligently did all the therapy I was suppose to do, in fact I'm still doing it at home. After six months I was working on construction, up and down ladders, roof work, etc. I have been able to play volleyball and softball (carefully). All this with no pain. And the best is that I can sleep through the night. I'm a satisfied customer and would recommend this surgery. ”

  • Knee Replacement

“I am 49 years old and have had knee pain for years. Pain medications, injections and physical therapy did little to relieve my pain. I could no longer play tennis let alone walk through the grocery store without excruciating pain. A few months ago, Dr. Gardner replaced my right knee and I couldn't be happier with my results! I would recommend Dr. Gardner to anyone in need of a knee replacement because he has given me my life back!”
