Dr Tanous and Chris are the best! Thank you for always taking such good care of me!
Doctor Brooks is the best. His advice to get lubricant injected into my knees has made my life so much better. Kudos!
Dr. Tanous and everyone at Advanced Orthopaedics are great. The surgery to repair my knee injury and the treatment afterwards were handled amazingly well.
Completing forms online beforehand was quick and simple. I arrived 30 minutes prior to my appointment as requested, and was pleasantly surprised to be summonsed less than 10 minutes from arrival.
Thanks for the help on strengthening my legs after the back surgery, There was no pain shooting down the back of my legs after surgery. I am recovering well with no pain medications after seven days.
Dr. Blalock did surgery on my broken wrist on Tuesday. I liked him a lot as did my husband. Took time to explain everything in detail even though his phone was ringing non-stop.
On Nov. 22, 2017, I had a spinal injection in my lower back and it was an instant miracle in my life!
