How likely are you to recommend Dr. Helgager?

(Select your rating)
I felt from the very beginning that I was in good hands. Dr. Helgager is a premier orthopedic surgeon. Due to his superb technical and surgical skills, I still have 2 great knees 8.5 years later. I interviewed 5 doctors before selecting Dr. Helgager as my surgeon for my knees. My right knee was extremely deformed. I am forever grateful to Dr.. H.!!!
