Patient Reviews

“In September I found out I would need surgery on my knee. It turned out to be a little more extensive of a procedure than I was hoping for with a longer recovery than anyone ever wants! I am usually the caretaker, not the who needs to be taken care of. From my very first appointment with Dr. Monroe, I knew I was in great hands. She always entered the room with a smile. She always sat down and made eye contact while talking and was never in a hurry. I was still allowed time for questions and was ever offered to call with any needs or concerns. This was my first experience personally with Heartland Orthopedic Specialists, and I was so impressed on how kind everyone was to me from checking in, to the staff who brought me to my room, and of course Dr. Monroe. What a great addition you have made to your group of surgeons. In the most vulnerable of times, I was made to feel at ease and handled very well cared for. I also want to thank Dawn who prepped me for surgery. I was fighting back the tears the whole time, and she was terrific! Brandon and Scott in PT are the best! Thanks, everyone!”

“Four weeks ago I had an anterior hip replacement performed by surgeon, Dr. Feierabend at Heartland. I no longer need a walker or a cane. For me, an anterior hip replacement meant faster recovery without as many precautions and fewer pain meds. I have only used over-the-counter pain medicine since I was discharged from the hospital. I am now cleared to "do anything I want to do." I am looking forward to long, pain free walks which I have not been able to do for some time. Anterior hip replacement might not be the answer for everyone, but it well worth looking into.”

“The care I recieved in the hospital after my total knee was excellant all the nurses were so kind and understanding! I had the best care you can get while I was there and Dr. Nelson was also very kind and professional. If I ever have to get the other knee replaced I would go back to Heartland Orthopedic's again.”

“Dr. Brand is Great! He was professional, and very concise with his plans for my knee repair. And the staff have always shown their care for my individual situation. My surgery went wonderfully, and I have already felt back to normal, minus a little pain on the same day. Thank you all!”
