Dr. Gordon performed a total knee replacement and 3 months later I was skiing in Colorado on the blue runs. Best thing I ever did. Been able to work out more consistently and effectively since.

I originally had my left hip done in April of '08 with a bad implant and had to have that redone in Dec. of 2012; both were by posterior procedure by another physician. When I first went to see Dr. Gordon I was very nervous about this new surgery. Dr. Gordon was very reassuring and answered all my questions regarding the anterior procedure and any of my other questions. I would recommend him to anyone who is considering hip replacement. His staff was very diligent about paperwork and any followup calls I made. Thumbs up!!!

I am writing on behalf of my mother, age 91, who had a hip replacement one year ago performed by Dr. Gordon. I did not consult with any other doctor as a good friend of mine thoroughly vetted Dr. Gordon for a bilateral knee replacement and chose him from an array of 7 orthopedic surgeons. Dr. Gordon's professional manner was impressive. I went with my mother for her pre-surgery consultation and Dr. Gordon addressed all my questions and concerns in a very forthright manner. Obviously, his skill as a surgeon was impressive as my elderly mother was almost ready to dance just weeks after her surgery. Immediately after the procedure, Dr. Gordon spent all the time necessary to review the surgery and to outline her follow up rehab. I was very impressed with Dr. Gordon and have since recommended him to a friend for a hip replacement which will be done by Dr. Gordon in December.

Doctor Gordon performed total knee replacements on both knees, and the outcome was excellent...Had the surgeries 6 weeks apart rather than both at the same time. Doctor Gordon visited me every morning (6am) at the hospital, and called to check up after released from the hospital..Very happy with the outcome..No issues at all..
