“I had a right knee total replacement done in Douglas, WY. The knee component was the wrong size. This was confirmed by Dr. Allaire in Casper. Dr. Allaire told me the only way to cure this was another surgery. I had the right knee total replacement revision surgery in June. I had talked with Dr. Allaire about the ongoing pain three or four months after the revision replacement and we had discussed a possible knee scope to eliminate some of the soft tissue on the outside of the knee where the pain was concentrated. Upon further talk we decided to wait. Also, let it be known that I had my left hip replaced by Dr. Smith. This replacement is doing GREAT. I am aware that the hip does not have the movement that a knee does so obviously it will not have the complication factor that a replaced knee can have. Bottom line.....Would I recommend these surgeons.......YES!!! and I have many times. Thank you.”
