“My total knee replacement was at last year. Extremely smooth and pretty much painless procedure. I was up walking within hours, again with minimum pain. The total procedure was explained to me in detail, and what I would probably experience over my recovery period. Seems Dr. Saenger knows his "stuff," because everything went as I was advised it would. I am doing everything I could do prior to the operation. IF (really when) I need the other knee to be operated on, Dr. Saenger will be the one to do it, if he is available. I tout his expertise every time I am asked about who did the operation. I'm sure the other physicians are excellent, but I like the idea of having the same Dr. who did such an outstanding job on my knee.”
