I appreciate the promptness of the necessary care at the time. The medical application was quick and effective. The visit was presented with the best professionalism.”
– Jay H.

“Dr. Marrs and his entire staff were compassionate and thorough in my surgery for a bilateral total knee replacement last December. Surgery is a daughting experience to say the least and their professionalism and eagerness to make me comfortable were outstanding. I couldn't have asked for a better team for my recovery. I am 9 months from my replacement and I am doing great. For my brief encounter with Dr. Marrs and his staff my life has been improved greatly. We don't get enough time with their wonderful talents. Thanks from the bottom of my heart for returning to me the quality of life I was missing out on.”
– Jan H.
“I had a great experience from start to finish. I had a few complications that got handled quickly and professionally. Staff were very caring and enjoyed their job and wanted the best for me as a patient.”
– Robin S.
– Bill W.
“Everything about the experience was very positive. From the beginning of determining the extent and cause of my problem to the decision to have a hip replacement done, I was given complete information and supported in my decision. Dr. Marrs answered my questions and provided the information I needed before and after the surgery. His superior skills as a surgeon ensured the very positive outcome I am now experiencing. Immediately after the surgery, the pain I had been experiencing was gone, and the surgical pain was minimal and quickly dissipated. Today just a few months after the surgery my hip feels like the one I was born with- no pain and I can walk, climb stairs and do anything I was able to do with the original hip joint! Thank you, Dr. Marrs!!!”
– Karen P.
“I have recommended Black Hills Orthopedic & Spine Center to many people suggesting if they have any orthopedic condition to consider going to Black Hills Orthopedic & Spine Center for reasons of the multiple specialists specific for whichever joint problem present. I also rave about the care l received at the Black Hills Surgical Hospital when l had my total knee replacement: excellent care with a prompt response when putting on your call light. Can’t say enough good about both facilities. Their outpatient physical therapy department also made a significant difference in the recovery process. Dr. Mars was great!”
– Hansona M.
“I think your facility is the best in the area. Thanks for being in Rapid City and giving us some choices instead of just Regional.”
– Kenneth B.

“This was my first visit; no procedures performed.”
– Wallace A.
“Previously l had a total knee replacement done at the specialty hospital by Dr. Marrs. The care during my hospital stay was beyond any I’ve ever received. The outcome of my surgery has given me back full use of my leg and alleviated my pain. I’ve recommended Dr. Marrs and the Black Hills Orthopedic & Spine Center to anyone who may require knee surgery. Also the outpatient physical therapy they offer at the center is excellent.”
– Hans M.
“Helped me feel at ease, with the confidence of the procedure to be done. No pressure to have surgery. Just facts of my current health needs. The day of surgery Dr. Marrs smile and confidence helped ease my nerves.”

“I have nothing but good things to say about the care I was given when I had two knee replacements. I have done very well and have had no problems.”

“Dr. Marrs and his assistant PA Corey Anderson make quite a professional team. Not only do they work well together, but they "speak with one voice" when it comes to joint replacements. That "oneness" reduces the anxiety and helps to assure each patient that what lies ahead will be positive. The professionalism of both men is second to none. My hip replacement surgery and my wife's two years ago with the same team was entirely positive.”
– Daniel D.

“Dr. Marrs did a wonderful job explaining the pros and cons in accordance with my total hip replacement. Since my total hip replacement he was right there to let my family know how things went. He also came to see me twice in the hospital to let me know how I was doing and addressed any concerns as they came up. He is a very good surgeon and I look forward to seeing him on my one month post-op appointment.”
– Kimberly K.
“I had two successful knee replacements with Dr. Marrs. I have referred several people to him and they as well were very happy. He's the best!”
– Bonnie C.
“Dr. Marrs is the BEST! My experience with him has been superlative. Dr. Marrs' explanations of my problems with my hips were straightforward to understand. He performed a total hip joint replacement for my right hip, and that was very successful. I went to a swing bed at my local hospital for about 10 days and I feel that was a good decision on my part for better healing and various therapies that I received. I'm having problems with my left hip. On my recent visit with Dr. Marrs after he reviewed my x-rays advised me that I do not need to have that hip replaced at this time, but he ordered a steroid injection in my left hip to relieve the pain. He said that he wants me to have that hip x-rayed again in a year, but if I am having more pain, then I should see him sooner. So far the injection is helping me very much. He also told me that if I need another dose to be in touch with him and he could order another infusion if surgery isn't indicated at that time. My visit with Dr. Marrs was a pleasant experience.”
– Carolyn A.
– James W.
“I had been needing a right knee replacement for eons. Finally, I was able to have it done and though the rehab and healing around the knee is slow (I have no patience!), the knee is amazing. Dr. Marrs was a competent surgeon and all the people who provided my care were considerate and kind. Thank you for the new knee and I'll keep plugging through therapy and hoping the left one hold on. If not, I'll be back to Black Hills Surgery Center.”

“Before having hip surgery, I researched surgeons in the Rapid City area. Dr. Marrs was the surgeon I decided to perform my surgery. I could not have gotten a better surgeon and my experience was a success. Not only was Dr. Marrs great but the hospital stay was one of the best. Everyone there cared and helped in any way they could.”
