I started going to Orlin & Cohen five years ago on a referral by one of Dr. Price's former patients. I had injured my left knee 45 years ago while playing college sports. During these past years, my knee was scooped twice and I lived with constant pain as my knee deteriorated. Dr. Price examined my knee, took X-rays and an MRI. He explained to me that my knee would require knee replacement surgery. During our discussions, I mentioned that surgery was not an option at this time. I would not be able to take the time off from work needed to rehab such a surgery and asked if there was another option that could help me until I was able to have the surgery. Dr. Price said he understood and recommended that I try a relatively new option for such injuries, which were Gel shots. My knee responded very well to the gel shots and made my discomfort very tolerable. I received the gel shots twice a year for the next four years. After retiring in July 2013, I met with Dr. Price and discussed having the knee replacement surgery.

Dr. Price informed me that his partner Dr. Gerber would be performing the replacement surgery. My wife and I met with Dr. Gerber who explained the entire procedure and what the rehab would be. Both my wife and I left the office feeling very confident that Dr. Geber would be the surgeon to repair and replace my knee. He explained the risks involved in this type of surgery and displayed the confident attitude you want to hear from your surgeon. I had my surgery on October 10, 2013.

Six months have gone by since my knee replacement and I am fully recovered. Yes, I am dancing, playing golf, riding my bike and taking long hikes once again and TOTALLY PAIN FREE for the first time in 42 years. I would like to thank everyone at Orlin & Cohen. The office staff was always very polite and professional making it so easy to set up appointments for follow-up visits to the staff who worked so hard to set up the surgery and hospital stay. It truly left only one matter to my wife and me; that was getting to the hospital on time.

I want to thank Dr. Price for being so caring and professional all of the time as well as enabling me to be able to wait until retirement for my surgery.

Dr. Gerber, thank you for doing such a great job on my knee replacement surgery. I am pain free and once again enjoying all that life has to offer.

I have and will continue to refer all to Orlin & Cohen for any orthopedic injuries
