TESTIMONIALS

The Very Best, Right Here in Tucson

★★★★★
5 5 1
Dr Dixon is by far the best dr I have had the honor to meet. He sincerely cares for his patients. From start to finish, he figuratively held my hand through two total knee replacements over a 6 month period. I recovered so quickly and am walking with no limp, up and down stairs and with little pain because he made absolutely sure that my physical therapy was a top priority. His perfectionism is so apparent and so appreciated. I am so grateful for him. He has changed my life.

STELLAR SURGEON & EVEN BETTER HUMAN BEING!

Dr. Dixon saved my husband's leg...and almost certainly also his life...by not giving up when presented with a very challenging situation. My husband's artificial hip, put in about 10 years prior, developed some weird infection that no other dr. could figure out. Dr. Dixon immediately devoted himself to the issue~~due to his expertise and his compassion, he did what other ortho surgeons had given up on!

I've had both knees replaced a la Dr. Dixon. He is just the best! His expectations are high, his requirements for PT are high, and as a result, I have had an extraordinary recuperation and recovery. The surgeries were done about 4 months apart, and at this point I am climbing 400 stair steps per day with NO PAIN! It is truly a miracle!
