If can travel,Mayo Clinic Rochester,Minnesota where the clinic was founded. Any of the doctors in ortho dept. are very capable. If u go into the Mayo website,than to Ortho dept. can see credentials of the doctors. My doctor is Dr, Pagnano.I have had two knee replacements and one hip.My wife has had two knee replacements and two hips! I do cardio dance 4 days a week and strength training three days a week. Rochester has accommodations from luxury to basic.All are very clean as you are serviced by people who have the Midwest work ethic.Getting around is a breeze, free shuttle service or if close to Clinic just grab a wheel chair, no checking out no return just leave at your destination. The last time I talked to Dr. Pagnano I asked him about my first knee, how long it would last. He said typically 1% fail a year.So if you are out 10 years there is a 90% chance of NO failure. As u know ortho.surgery it is very lucrative and in high demand with baby boomers and the obesity epidemic.Orthropedic surgeons are paid on commission,they are incentavized to do more operations! Mayo doctors are paid on salary! The Mayo philosophy is to do what’s best for the patient.I’ll give you an example of how it works. When my knee started acting up I went to three surgeons and they all told me the same thing,we need to operate ASAP. I went to Mayo and after extensive testing, exponentially better than other doctors,Dr. Pagnano said I need not do anything;I would know when I would need the surgery. This is important as the longer u can push the operation the greater probability you will die before it fails.Best to you and contact me if you have any other questions.
