“Dr. Fuchs replaced my hip; I couldn't believe the instant relief and how fast I was back on my feet. I have sought help with Dr. Fuchs for a shoulder problem which occurred after the hip problem, and he sent me to Dr. Flaherty who was able to get the issue resolved with no surgery. The staff in the offices have always been both competent as well as pleasant. I would never think of using any other surgeons unless first directed by Dr. Fuchs. I will recommend The Bone & Joint Center to everyone who is need of the best!”

I listened to all of his suggestions, such as riding a stationary bike for the 3 months prior to my knee replacement, and has a very quick recovery after the surgery. Today I am pain free and participating in activities I haven't been able to do in 5 years. I have recommended Dr. Fuchs to others looking for knee replacement and will use him again if I have need of another replacement. This surgery has given me back my life!”

Dr. Fuchs' bedside manner is not warm and fuzzy but he gets the job done efficiently and I'll return to him for have my 2 knees replaced. He is a 5 star surgeon in my opinion!”
– Carol T.
“Dr. Fuchs treated me in a respectful and helpful manner throughout my knee joint replacement experience. His assistant, Brianna, was always courteous and responded in a timely manner.”
– Linda S.
“I had both of my knees replaced, six months apart, and my experience was wonderful. After 25 years of pain, I was ready for anything. The surgery was smooth, but it was the post surgical rehab at Sunnyview that I believe made all the difference. It was seven days straight, for six hours a day, but I walked out of Sunnyview a week later. It made all the difference when the second knee was done. I can't stress it enough, that anyone that has this surgery, must put the time in for rehab, and your results will be rewarded. I would really like to thank Dr. Fuchs for giving me my quality of life back.”
– John W.
“I had both hips replaced in 6 days and had little pain and was walking without assistance 4 days later. It is now 8 months later and I feel great!”

“Dr. Fuchs is the absolute pinnacle of professionalism and an extremely gifted and talented surgeon. The quality of my life improved more than I could have hoped following the hip replacements.

– Nancy L.
“I had a total knee replacement and Dr. Fuchs was the surgeon who performed the surgery. I was told he was the best and I can now say myself that he is. Very professional.

– Alice S.
“I love Dr. Fuch's ! I wouldn't see anyone else! Dr. Fuch's always makes me feel as though I am more than just a number on a chart. I truly believe that he cares about each and every one of his patients.”

“Dr. Fuchs was very friendly and professional and took care of my problem right away. I Came in with a swollen knee : he had an x-ray taken,he drained the knee and gave me a shot of Cortisone which made me feel better immediately. He saw a bone chip in the x-ray so I have a follow up appointment and will determine future treatment then but the whole experience is great ! Very grateful that he could see me right away.”
