“Dr. Knight was willing to listen and answer any questions that I had. He gave me choices on how to handle my knee and didn't try to "push" any choice over another. After trying the different choices that eventually quit working, a date was set for surgery. The procedure and what to expect during recovery was explained very well and there were no surprises afterward. I was given pre-op exercises to do and was encouraged to do them each day, for a better/easier recovery. By doing so, they have made my physical therapy easier. I would recommend Dr. Knight to anyone considering a total knee replacement.”
