“I have been seeing Dr. Evans for many years, he is a terrific doctor at the top of his profession. He worked with me on my right knee for a few years, then we needed to replace it about 11 years ago. I thought at the time I was too young, not at all the case. The most recent operation was a revision of the same knee due to additional bone growth. Dr. Evans has given me back many great years of activities with my wife and two boys I wouldn't have otherwise had. I ski 30+ times a year, bike, hike and golf.”
