  • Total knee replacement

“I am a Veteran and this is the doctor the VA chose for me to do my knee replacement. I couldnât have made a better choice if I had picked one myself. Surgery is a huge decision and big part of that is feeling comfortable with the doctor you choose. The qualities that drew me to Dr. William Gallivan, Jr. were how close he is with his family and staff. They all are like one big family and make you feel that way too. I couldnât have asked for a better experience and I had checked on several others in the area and done my homework. I am super happy with my recovery. I am 47 and athletic but had a total knee replacement and am back playing softball and hitting home runs after only 3 months post surgery. Still not sprinting yet but I feel like I probably could. Dr. Gallivan is an amazing doctor and really cares about your treatment as does his staff. He considers all avenues available to you when contemplating surgery. If you're on the fence for a surgeon then definitely consider him. ”

  • Total Hip Replacement

“I believe Dr.Gallivan and his staff are by far the best anywhere. I have total confidence in Dr.Gallivan, I felt it from the moment I met him and that for me is unusual. On September 11th, while wide awake I got a new hip and every day is better than the last. I expect to be back to cycling within the next few weeks!!

Everyone in the office from Jackie who handles scheduling your surgery to Adam and Taylor go above and beyond to make sure you get the best of care.

I cannot thank them enough. Truly a great experience.”
