Dear Dr. Leone,

I wanted to express my deep appreciation for the wonderful care and expertise provided by you and your associates.  Two other surgeons determined I would require a total knee replacement to provide a positive outcome for my bone on bone arthritic knee.  Obviously they were incorrect.  My partial knee replacement feels great 6 weeks post-surgery.  I never needed a walker or cane.  My knee immediately felt aligned and in good working order.  I am still strengthening the leg, but all my muscles are now firing and I’m probably a month away from being as strong as I was pre-surgery.  Based on my progress, I anticipate an as good as new result.  I have been hitting golf balls for 2 weeks without any of the prior knee pain.

Sitting in your waiting room and watching videos of your surgeries and technologies employed was fascinating and very educational.  I learned how new technologies enabled you to know with a pretty high degree of certainty that a replaced joint was properly situated and balanced insuring an optimum outcome.  The first time I felt my knee after the partial replacement, I knew right away that I would have a great outcome.

You and your associates were most attentive and caring throughout the entire process.  I always felt that time was made to address my questions and concerns.  Thank you for treating me conservatively and not performing a total knee replacement because it was a sure thing.  You are a truly outstanding surgeon and I was most fortunate to have met you.

Very truly yours,

Bart H. Friedman
