    I would definitely recommend Dr. D. He has been treating my bone on bone knee so far with gel injections. He is very honest, caring and explains things very well. I have such great confidence in him. If I have to get a knee replacement I have the most utmost confidence in him.

    Dr. Durbhakula is extremely skilled and knowledgeable. He replaced my incredibly painful hip, which has been wonderful 3+ yrs. He also treated a broken kneecap conservatively, determining that the shattered pieces were aligned so it did not need surgery as long as it was immobilized during healing. That worked well. I only wish that he'd warned me that since I decided against having him withdraw the blood, it would drain down to my shin area and be extremely painful. (But it was my choice.)

    I had a nightmare knee surgery in February 2015. A year later my knee hurt more than before the surgery. Thankfully, a friend sent me to Dr. Durbhakula who told me, very regretfully, that I would have to repeat the surgery. Since the pain was unbearable I agreed despite grave concerns because of my past experience. However he did a fantastic job and my knee is now in very good shape. He was great on every front --professionally and personally. I recommend him highly.

    I am a 67 yr old woman who had meniscal repairs done on both knees in ‘12 & ‘13. After several years of synovial injections, I decided it was time to try to enjoy my remaining years, pain free.
    I had two robotically assisted, total knee replacements done by Dr D., using the Zimmer Personal IQ implants. My first knee was replaced on 4/6/23 and the other knee on 7/13/23. I am EXTREMELY satisfied with the process & results of both surgeries. Although I may not be the typical patient, I was up walking with the cane that evening on the day of surgery, and within days, no cane at all. My second incision was not closed as neatly as the first (skin overlaps in both directions), but all-in-all it’s fine. I would definitely recommend Dr D and the Surgery Ctr. for knee replacement.

    I had an anterior left hip replacement in May 2022 . My experience from my consultation to surgery to postoperative care has been above and beyond . I can't say enough about Dr Durbhakula his entire staff from the front desk to the medical assistants X-ray technicians scheduling staff were professional knowledgeable as well as empathic and friendly .
    My hospital experience was the same with each medical personnel I encountered at the hospital .
    I'm a very active healthy person , when I found out I needed hip surgery I was extremely anxious and very depressed .
    Having Dr Durbhakula and his team my mind was put at ease . I am so happy to have my quality of life back that I hadn't had in years . I'm riding my bike with my grandchildren . I just went snorkeling in December and ready to play tennis with my grandson. This surgery and team changed my life .

    I am so grateful to Dr Durbhakula and his team for restoring my mobility after so many years. I had a lot of apprehension but they were very patient. I could not ask for a better result.
