I have all the faith in the world in Sky Lakes Medical Center and Dr. Heaton. I was ‘up and going’ on day one and I now have almost no scar. While in the hospital, I was treated like a queen. My care was so superb, I wouldn’t go anywhere else – and I’m getting ready to have my other knee done by Dr. Heaton at the Center for Total Joint and Spine Care in Klamath Falls. I’m a runner and a bike rider, and I’m ready to get back at it.
Our orthopedic department is outstanding.
I knew I needed to have something done on my knee when I could no longer do the things I love – hunting and fishing. Since my surgery, my pain has reduced significantly. For anyone who is ready to have a joint replacement, there is no need to look outside Klamath Falls. Have your surgery close to home and recover close to home without sacrificing anything.
I would definitely recommend CTJSC to anyone!
The Center for Total Joint and Spine Care prepared me for my surgery from my very first office visit. Dr. Heaton and the hospital staff did a great job controlling my pain. They checked on me often to make sure I was progressing and prepared when I was discharged to go home. The group physical therapy while I was in the hospital challenged me to move – something my doctor and physical therapists said would quicken my recovery.
I wouldn’t go anywhere else.
Dr. Knudsen and The Center for Total Joint and Spine Care helped me get back to my life. They treat me like family, and that is something that is really important to me. They are caring and supportive and make sure that you are prepared for the experience. I was told to go to Bend or Medford for this kind of surgery, but I am so glad that I stayed here. My recovery has been outstanding – I wouldn’t go anywhere else.
Don’t delay! We’re ready to get you moving and active again!
