"Amazing surgeon for knee replacement. Second knee replacement for my husband. 1st surgery by another surgeon who was good but recovery from Dr. Knutson surgery far less painful and quick return to activity. Highly recommend "

"Dr didn’t really listen to me, got very defensive when I questioned him. He’d made his mind up before seeing me, solely based on an MRI report findings, not by looking at the imaging, just the radiologist’s few sentences. He conducted a few test that felt like was just going through the motions, not asking for my feedback. During one ‘test’ he asked me to walk about 5 paces whilst he watched. He said I walk fine, however, I have a fragmented navicular bone in my left foot, causing my arch collapse. My right foot has a fractured navicular too. This makes my gait and walk highly abnormal (all my friends make fun of my walk), my shoes wear out unevenly and I have constant foot pain. Stevie wonder could see I walk funnily, not this old geezer. Knutsun’s dismissive attitude, and poor eye-sight led me down the path of back surgery, which I didn’t, and still don’t believe I needed. 55 days post-op, no change. I think I’m suffering from Deep Gluteal Syndrome.. This Dr looks like he is about ...
70, didn’t wear glasses and missed a lot. Waste of time and money. He actually told me, “you’re not a candidate for hip or knee surgery, so you’re in the wrong place”. Still seeking a proper diagnosis after 18 months. Not all Knutson’s fault but his inattentive and defensive attitude, made me leave upset, to the point of tears.. from the shear frustration of this all. I waited for 2 months, in agony, for that appointment, only to be dismissed within about 10 minutes. He kept saying “sorry you’re not getting the answer you want to hear”. There was no particular answer I was seeking, just an accurate diagnosis. If searching for a diagnosis, I’d avoid at all costs, doesn’t seem to care about patients’ input.. he came off as an arrogant, irritated, defensive and clearly needs his eyes checked "
