After trying shots for my knee pain, I decided to proceed with surgery. Dr. Palumbo has a soothing personality which is rare for a doctor and he actually listened to me. His P.A., Brian Wicker is wonderful too. He listened and wanted to make sure you were comfortable with their recommendations. After surgery, I actually walked immediately upon getting to my room and had no pain. However, after 3 days, I did feel it. With home care, I was bending my knee 1110 degrees within 2 weeks and only used a cane after about a week. I have recommended them to several people. I am very happy with the results and minimum down time.
