About 8 years ago, I began experiencing pain in my groin when walking. It became chronic over the years in my back and hips. It slowly started to limit my activity to the point that I couldn't walk, stand, lift, sleep or do anything physical without pain.
I felt that hip replacements were for older people, and I wasn't yet 60. I went to Dr. Fowler because I knew he used a different technique than most doctors. His anterior approach to hip replacement is amazing! I was up walking as soon as I came out of the anesthesia. I was home that night feeling great! They only medicine I needed was Tylenol and Advil.
I started physical therapy the following week and I was ready to go back to work at 3 weeks post surgery. 4 months after the 1st surgery Dr. Fowler replaced my other hip. I am able to do things I haven't done in years! Walking, standing and playing with my grandsons is possible again. I even danced at my nephew's wedding! My goals were simple, I just wanted to go to the grocery store without pain, go to the zoo with my grandsons, and clean the house without having to spend the rest of the day in pain. I feel like a new person! Dr. Fowler and his staff were wonderful to work with. He has a great bedside manner, I highly recommend Dr. Fowler!!

My GP referred me to Orthopedic ONE after my left knee had been quite sore for several weeks. I chose Dr. William Barker, based on several testimonials that I found. After an X-ray and MRI, I was told that I had a torn meniscus and Dr. Barker suggested arthroscopic surgery. I had this surgery about 16 years ago and remembered laying on the couch for a week with a swollen, tender knee.
The day before my surgery, I loaded up on books and DVD's to help me pass the time on my couch. The surgery went fine and I was walking without crutches that evening. The next day I removed the bandages from my leg and walked without any crutches or a cane. The following day I was walking around outside and my neighbors were asking me when I would have the knee surgery. "Two days ago" was my reply. Nobody could believe it! Yesterday after 2 1/2 weeks of the knee progressively feeling better, I biked 8 miles to the gym, swam a half mile and biked home.
Needless to say, I'm a big fan of Dr. Barker! Not only did the surgery go extremely well, I found that he takes the time to fully explain things to his patients. It's almost to the point that when he is talking to you in an exam room you start to feel guilty about how much of his time you are taking and you wonder why he is not rushing out of the room like most doctors seem to do these days.

Not only is Dr. Sahai the BEST surgeon I’ve ever had, he’s the best overall doctor I’ve ever had!
Dr. Sahai did my right total knee replacement surgery in August of 2018. It was a piece of cake! I was up walking within 4 hours and the progress continued from there.
In addition to being extremely skilled, Dr. Sahai is very responsive and has the bedside manner of an angel! On Day 2 post op he came into my hospital room at 6:00 am for his morning rounds and I was sobbing from pain. It was dark, I was alone and scared. He hugged me, encouraged me, told me, “Today is going to be a better day.” Then he went out to get a nurse to bring the pain medicine in. Within 30 minutes, I felt like a new person.
I never had any complications or setbacks in any way. EVERYBODY loves him. EVERYBODY respects him and EVERYBODY trusts him. His office nurse, Tonia is just like him. Very sympathetic to the process, very encouraging and just as happy as Dr. Sahai is. They clearly love their profession and it shows.
As an RN for 25 yrs myself, I don’t know of any doctor/surgeon as special as Dr. Sahai is. He has a real gift!

When I first went to see Dr. Hannallah, I was in extreme pain. It felt like I had my left arm permanently stuck in high voltage. I couldn't sleep and my quality of life was at 0.
After Dr. Hannallah performed a discectomy and fusion, I immediately awoke from recovery completely free of any pain or nerve issues. I didn't even get the sore throat or swelling sometimes associated with surgery. This was the best decision ever! He truly did an amazing job.
Three weeks after surgery, I was back to work and am healing wonderfully. The Orthopedic ONE office staff have called and checked on me and the physical therapy team was terrific. I am so grateful for the complete professionalism and actual care they have for their patients. They treat you like a person, a friend, and not a number like a lot of practices do.
Thank you so much Orthopedic ONE! I have been praising your services and recommending you to anyone that needs a great physician for any orthopedic needs. I am blessed and back up and moving and living pain free once again!
In January of 2017, I took a hard fall off the balance beam at a gymnastics meet. Right when I landed I knew something wasn't right. As a gymnast, cheerleader and dancer for many years, getting an injury is not only difficult physically, but also emotionally.
When I fell off the balance beam, my right ankle rolled off an 8 inch mat sitting underneath. Luckily, it was just a sprain. But as time went by, my activities were getting harder and harder and I had frequent ankle sprains on the same ankle. When I thought my ankle was fully healed, it was actually getting worse. I didn't think much of it, so I would ignore the pain. But it got to the point where I couldn't take it anymore.
That's why in August 2018, I made my way to Orthopedic ONE. After talking to Dr. Clem, he recommended that we try conservative treatment methods first, so I started physical therapy. A month or two went by, and my ankle still wasn't where it should be. My ligaments were so stretched out, it got to the point where I had no strength. Then I had an appointment with Dr. Tscholl, and he told me the only way I was going to get back to doing the things I love is to have surgery to repair my ligaments. I knew that this was the right decision and I had a strong trust in Dr. Tscholl's decision making and ability to help me get better.
In November 2018, I had a Broström procedure done. After a few months of recovery and physical therapy, I am back to doing cheerleading and dance. I can finally do back flips again! To this day, I am really happy I had this surgery and there is no other place I'd want to go. I am really thankful for Orthopedic ONE for everything they did to help me get back to the athlete I know I can be!
