Patient Testimonials

Jeff

“I owe many thanks to Dr. Nemanich for my two new ACLs. 15 months ago I blew out both ACLs skiing. I was afraid I’d never ski the same way again. 2 weeks later I had bilateral ACL replacement surgery (also removed some hardware from previous surgery) and was out for the season. What a helpless feeling! I was like a turtle stuck on its back. I thought I’d never get back to walking normal, let alone skiing again. I’m an avid mountain biker and skier; I did not want to lose any ability to do the things I love. I was lightly biking on a stationary bike within 3 months and riding the local mountain bike trails in 5 months. 7 months later I rode hard without fear and without braces. Biking made my knees feel great! 650 miles of trail riding and 2 hours of physical therapy a day really helped my progress. But what about skiing? That was my main concern. I skied as much as possible this season, hoping for the best, wondering if the knees would hold out. I’m happy to say I put in over 500k vertical feet. I skied locally and also visited Vail, Keystone, A-Basin, Breck, Beaver Creek, Grand Targhee, and Jackson Hole. I’ve never put on more miles on my bike or more vertical feet skiing in one season ever before. And I was able to do this thanks to Dr. Joe Nemanich. He gave me the confidence, advice, and support to come back just as strong as I was before my surgery. Do your physical therapy, think positive, and work hard toward your goals. You CAN come back stronger!”

“I had my knee replacement in December 2009, and could not be happier! Within months I could walk without pain, dance with my husband and live life pain free. Bless you Dr. Nemanich, you ARE the best! I refer everyone who asks me about where I had it done or by who.”

“I couldn’t be happier with all the great services Dr. Nemanich and his staff provided me during the spring of 2008. I received my first hip in April and was up and getting around like a new person. I was so excited about the mobility. He even took pictures of my hip during his surgery just for me! All was going extremely well when I fell off my bike on my new hip and broke my leg and needed another hip! He spent hours putting me back together. I am walking today because of his skills. If you would like to contact me my email address is cooper4@charter.net. I would love to tell you how wonderful he is. He is easy to talk to and loves to explain all of your concerns. He and his staff are the greatest!”

“Two total hip replacements in just over thirteen months. The procedures and recovery could not have gone better thanks in no small measure to Dr. Joseph Nemanich. His confidence and enthusiastic professionalism gave me so much confidence I just knew that everything was going to work out perfectly. And it did. I almost wish I had a third hip for Dr. Nemanich to replace. I could not recommend anyone more highly than Dr. Joe Nemanich when it comes to joint replacement surgery. Thanks so much Dr. Nemanich. You have given me two new great hips to enjoy once again all the physical activities I so much enjoy in life.”
