I had a new replacement a couple of months ago and Dr Murphy did an incredible job! He was very good at helping me get back to my active lifestyle! I would highly recommend him!
Dr. Murphy was kind, attentive and offered a game plan to get to knee surgery. I was comfortable and clear when I left as to our plan of action. Thank you!
