I first met Dr. Gaines over 16 years ago, at a time when another physician treated me like I couldn't possibly need surgery due to my age. After 15 months of being ignored (and a quick decline in my ability to walk), Dr. Gaines determined that I needed bilateral total hip replacements. Within one year I went from the inability to walk (and questioning my sanity) to being able to walk without pain. He has since replaced a knee and taken care of me with multiple joint issues. He discovered deformities in my hip structure from birth which explained the reason for needing surgery at a young age. 

Dr. Gaines is not only an excellent surgeon, but a great person with incredible bed-side manner. I highly recommend Dr. Gaines!
