“I've used Desert Orthopaedic Center for a few surgeries now, Foot, Shoulder, Hip, and couldn't be happier with my outcome results. All of the Great Doctors, PA's, and staff are top-notch quality people.”
– Richard W.
“Dr. Fontes and staff at St Rose's did a professional job on both of my hips. I am elated! I like the idea of doing my therapy, utilizing yoga and pilates courses available to me. After a year, I was able to walk several miles and returned to tennis, a step slower but a happy camper. My goal was to walk several miles in national parks, and I did that this fall six months after my second hip. I have stiffness in one bone, which makes socks/shoes a chore. Otherwise, I am delighted with my new hips.”

“I wouldn't have wanted anyone else other than Dr. Fontes to perform my second hip transplant. Dr. Fontes's care and professionalism, his talent are beyond expectation, and I won't hesitate to recommend Dr. Fontes to anyone who is considering joint replacement surgery. He is the finest.”
– Errol T.
“Pre-op discussions were informative and well facilitated. Working with Dr. and the staff was easy. It made my decision at that time to go forward with the surgery.”

“I called Dr. Fonte's office on a Monday with hip pain and saw him on Friday the same week. That in itself is incredible! Dr. Fontes did an exam and x-rays, and we discussed my options. I decided on a right total hip replacement. The surgery got scheduled three weeks later. The procedure got done at the surgery center with an overnight stay. No Hospital, no hospital germs. Awesome! I was going up and down steps the afternoon of surgery. I had an anterior approach to my hip, so there was no physical therapy; I had to walk and do steps as tolerated, no longer sitting. Dr. Fontes takes his time with his patients, and he is the most personable surgeon I have ever met. The entire experience was phenomenal. So much so that I had my left hip done six weeks ago, and I am back to regular activity. I can't say enough good things about Dr. Fontes and Desert Orthopaedic Center. I recommend him to anyone who says they have joint or back problems.”
– Helen M.
“I have been seeing Dr. Fontes for almost 20 years, and he has always been friendly and professional. He replaced both my knees, and things couldn't have gone better. Virtually no pain after the surgery, and it was a lot easier process than I thought it would be. I would recommend him to anyone with no reservations. He also referred me to Dr. M. Lee for some issues with my hands, and he was just as good. All my dealings at Desert Orthopaedic Center have been positive.”
