The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Jewett.
“I was very limited in what I could do. I like working outside and riding horses, I could not even get on my horse. After recovering from the surgery I am back to doing everything I did before the pain started. I am so happy. Dr. Jewett is wonderful. I have recommended him to people whether the person needs the surgery or a friend does.”
– Chris C.
“Dr. Jewett is a wonderful Doctor. Good sense of humor. Listens to what you say and answers your questions fully and spends the necessary time with you. He gave me the full Operative Report on my knee replacement surgery. I fell on my operated knee on black ice on my driveway. I thought I broke either my patella or the knee replacement. I went over to Slocum right away and explained what happened and they got me in right away. Dr. Jewett apparently did not have surgery that day. Xrays were taken and Dr. Jewett briefly came into the waiting room and informed me from the Xrays nothing was broken. Wonderful care from Dr. Jewett and the staff of Slocum. Highly recommend Dr. Jewett and his staff at Slocum.”
– Philip H.
“I had bilateral knee replacement with Dr. Jewett. Everything went extremely well. My 2 1/2 Hr surgery took 1 1/2 hrs, my physical therapy went very well. I was driving in 3 weeks and back to work part time. I was very impressed with everything.”
– Claudia S.

Dr. Jewett gave me my quality of life back. Each time I see him I thank him.”

“I had my hip replaced and since that my life has improved greatly! I can walk without constant pain! My surgeon took great care of me.

I am able to live a very normal, fruitful life because of my new hip and because of Dr. Jewett and the staff of Slocum Medical Center.”

“I have had several knee surgeries at different locations but Slocum Orthopedics is my number one. Dr. Jewett is amazing and meticulous on what he does. He is concerned and cares about his patients. I wish I had been introduced to him for my other knee surgeries. I am thankful for Dr. Jewett!!”

“I did my research and talked to lots of people who've had knee replacements when I knew a TKR was in my future. I also talked to a bunch of PTs and health providers and concluded Dr. Jewett is the best for TKRs. My experience supports that. He treated me respectfully and answered my questions clearly, allowing me to decide when it was right for me to finally schedule my knee replacement. I felt confident in his skills. My surgery, recovery and rehab turned out great. I'm 3 yrs out and feel I have a new lease on life!”
– Diane M.
“I had suffered with hip and groin pain for several years. My regular physician did an xray and told me that my hip joint was "acceptable". I wondered acceptable to whom? It affected my quality of life, reducing my ability to participate in normal activities like shopping, housework and yard work. I had some severe pain in my lower leg and requested further screening (MRI). It turned out that I had spinal stenosis. I saw both my back doctor and Dr. Jewett. The two of them consulted and determined that I should have the back surgery first, and Dr. Jewett confirmed the arthritis in my right hip that was severe enough to qualify for hip replacement surgery. I was impressed that they worked together for the best outcome for me. Dr. Jewett is all business, not a lot of chit chat. My xray and MRI told him what he needed to know, so I didn't have to go into a litany of all the pain and discomfort I had endured and how it affected my life. He simply got down to business. The pre-op screenings were comprehensive. They took good care of me in the hospital. The surgery went well. I had a little set back after Dr. Jewett released me for "normal" activities, this was about 3 months after surgery. I overdid it and ended up in a lot of pain. His staff advised me to eliminate or cut back on certain activities and put me on a program of high doses of ibuprofen and icing my hip. It took a few weeks, but eventually pain resolved. It has now been 8 months since my surgery and I am able to do all activities that I want to. I just pace myself a little more and pay attention if I start feeling discomfort. I am 68 years old and feel like I have a new life. I no longer live with the constant pain. I am very appreciative for the chance to live life more fully!”

“I have had only one appointment with Dr, Jewett so far, but I was impressed. He went over all the options for treatment and gave me all of the pros and cons of each. He did help me reach my decision to have a total knee replacement. I feel very confident that I have made right decision to chose Dr. Jewett as my doctor.”
– Jack M.
“Dr. Jewett performed my replacements. He has my complete confidence regarding any procedure I may require that he is proficient.”

“Two of my colleagues were treated for total knee replacement surgery at Slocum. One was Dr. Jewett's patient. Both were ecstatic about their experience and encouraged me not to wait any longer regarding the same surgery. I visited my family physician and related the story to him. Knowing of my lingering knee issues, he immediately contacted Slocum to arrange for my surgery. The rest is history. I am currently recuperating from the surgery which occurred on the morning of eclipse day, August 21. I will see Dr. Jewett next Wednesday for a 6-week follow up visit. I have been faithfully attending my PT sessions and have tried to exceed my previous goal attainments in order to accelerate the healing process. I will be happy to help encourage others who are considering total knee replacement surgery.”

“No pain....yay. Never thought I would ever be able to walk, sit, dance, sleep etc., without wondering how the pain was going to influence such as, "locking" hip up and not being able to move. Healing well. Am now four months out and enjoying normal activities without pain. Thank you Doctor Jewett and staff. Happy to have wonderful doctors at Slocum In our community.”
– Betty A.
“I was once told if you want great results from simultaneous bilateral knee replacement choose a great surgeon. I chose a great surgeon in Dr. Jewett and the results after 7 months have surpassed my expectations. He visited every day I was post-op in the hospital and answered every question I had in respect to how the surgery went to what to expect in rehab. Dr. Jewett and the physical therapy professionals (Natalie and Makena) as well as all those I was in contact with at Slocum were outstanding. I am physically able to do things now that I wasn't able to do before the surgery and rehab. Thank you!”
– Thomas J.

I hope more people ask about my experience so that I can tell them too. Everything right down to the food servers was excellent.”
– Denny L.
“I'm the luckiest woman alive! Before my surgery, I could not walk across the floor without assistance -- now I walk all over. I received two total hip replacements by Dr. Jewett. I was up walking the same day of surgery. Dr. Jewett was professional, an amazing surgeon, answered all of my questions, and is very personable. I had no fear going in to these surgeries knowing he was at the helm. I had no problems following the surgeries. I would tell anyone who is on the fence about hip replacement to just do it. It is life-changing.”
– Cynthia C.
“Very professional and accommodating. Staff is very friendly and professional also.”
– Bryon N.

“Dr. Jewett did an excellent job on my bilateral knee replacement. The scares are barely visible and most people can't even tell. I was back to work and climbing poles within a year. Thank you Dr. Jewett!!”
