My experience with Dr Gallivan and his staff at the Orthopedic Institute was beyond “Amazing”! I was pretty nervous about the whole idea of getting a knee replacement even though my mobility has been constrained for years because of this knee. To my surprise, the surgical experience was actually enjoyable (I know, that’s hard to imagine- you have to do it to get it) and Dr Gallivan’s kind and effective staff made the post op experience of recovery better than I could have predicted. Special thanks to Ana, Adrianna, Adam, Natalie, and Karen who each took care of particular questions and issues and made recovery so much less stressful. Dr Gallivan himself though, is the most amazing. Following through with his recommendation to be awake during the surgery was the best experience possible; I couldn’t believe that I was up and walking in short time after the surgery, and was able to go home! His use of robotic surgery meant that I had perfect placement of my knee joint, which has made a huge difference on my recovery in comparison to others that I’ve known who’ve had this surgery elsewhere! All along what has really impressed me about Dr Gallivan is his enthusiasm and real joy about being able to help folks like me get back to the life they love and the mobility they need to live it! I wish that I could give Dr Gallivans 10 stars… He deserves every one of them!
