As a surgeon myself I am pretty picky on who gets to cut on me. I was very impressed with Dr Nisbets knowledge and surgical skills as well as his care. I would definately recommend him to anyone needing orthopeadic work done. I had my ACL replaced with a cadaver graft and my medial meniscus repaired and lateral removed. three months post surgery everything is great!

Dr. Nesbitt was excellent to deal with, first he attentively listened to my history, then he did extensive manual testing and basic imaging to establish the extent of injury. Afterward, he took time to show me and thoroughly explain my condition and the recommended course of treatment. I had an excellent experience, and I will certainly be back to see him for the corrective procedure.
