I found Dr. Mattheos to as good as any of them. He has a great bed side manner and tells it like it is. He took care of my daughter so when I injured my knee I went to him.

“I had a totally great experience with Dr. Mattheos as my doctor. From the start, he explained the truth about the situation with my knee and I had no doubts about having the MAKO procedure done to correct it. As of this date, it's been 9 weeks out from having the procedure, and I have full movement of the knee again with no pain. Physical Therapy afterwards was key to my recovery and I cannot say enough gratitude for everyone who was involved with me during this whole time. As a matter of fact, I am presently starting the process again with Dr. Mattheos to see what I can do with my other knee, and if another MAKO procedure would be appropriate. If so, I'm certainly going to have it done again with him and his staff. I have always been an active/outdoors person and getting back that quality of life to me is a god send!!!
