I have had problems with my knees for 15+ years. I had a torn meniscus, acl, mcl and a lot of arthritis. Dr. Bocklage and Dr. Kraft have both done surgeries on me. I called to make an appointment with Dr. Kraft but he had retired. The nurse suggested Dr. Arntson. When I first met him he was very nice and helpful. He explained all the options to my husband and myself and answered all my questions. I decided on a knee replacement. I have heard many horror stories about the pain and it didn't work and so on, but I felt very confident with Dr. Arntson and he reassured me that everything would be fine and I would be well taken care of. I felt very calm going into surgery and knew that he would do a great job.. He talked to my husband after surgery and said everything went well. From the time I was in recovery throughout my hospital stay (3days ) I had very little pain. The nurses at Mercy were very nice and were always there when I needed them. Dr Arnston came on the second day and removed the bandages. I was really shocked because it looked so good. Lots of swelling and pretty colors but the incision looked great. He did a great job.
Dr. Arntson and his staff have all be wonderful. He is an amazing surgeon, very kind and caring. I would recommend him to everyone 100% I would also like to mention the physical therapist at Mercy. Denise is great and my two outpatient therapists, Seth and Jared. They push me to do what I need to get better. I am doing great and with a little more time I'll be walking and hiking the way I use to.
