TESTIMONIALS

Total Knee Replacement

★★★★★
5 5 1
Dr. Francois impressed me right away with her confidence and careful explanation of what I was getting into with a total knee replacement. She fit me into her schedule in just a few weeks. The surgery had difficulties but Dr. Francois performed it perfectly, using robot guidance. I am now making rapid progress, walking without aids in just 2 weeks. I am very pleased by her work and follow up meetings, and I will ask her to do my other knee in a few years.
