Patient Reviews
Apr 02, 2023
Dr Howell provided me with two new knees, the first TKR on my right knee after a massive injury involving dislocation of the patella (suffered multiple times in my life), and severe osteoarthritis, then 7 years later (just last Dec, 2022), my LTKR. He is the best in his field, a pioneer in kinematic calipered aligned technology, holds several issued patents on the method and the calipers used for the surgery. He’s dynamic in his interaction with the patient, explains things well, he’s down to earth and has a good sense of humor. Most of all he’s humble. I feel incredibly blessed to have had him as my surgeon. I can’t recommend this Dr enough. Unfortunate to have had to have the surgery but fortunate that my life journey crossed with Dr Howell. I am able to do every activity I used to do including: walking daily 3+ miles, spin cycle, HIIT, hiking, tennis and golf. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be able to do all this for the rest of my life!
