Thank-you Jamie for all the follow-ups he did before and after surgery.

Thank-you Monica who got me scheduled for surgery during unprecedented times with hospital cancellations due to Covid-19.

Thank-you Tabitha and Jessica for answering all my questions and concerns, especially during these trying times with scheduling.

I highly recommend Dr. Hudanich. I was completely cared for and informed before, during and after surgery. Top notch, Dr. Hudanich and Team!!

Dr. Hudanich is AMAZING. I highly recommend him and his staff. Today I couldn’t walk bc there was so much fluid in my knee. I was in such unbelievable pain when I went in, but he drained it, gave me an injection, and I go back in 2 weeks. I may have to have another surgery to clean it out again. Eventually, I may need a knee replacement, but every time I see him, I feel better. He is thorough and will do what is in a patient’s best interest. He has a wonderful bedside manner and is truly an expert in his field. He’s one of the best! I highly recommend him and his practice. Thank you, Dr. Hudanich and Jamie for your help today. I’m so grateful you could fit me in. I wouldn’t trust my knee to anyone else!

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Hudanich and his staff. I felt like family the first time I walked into the office. I had a total hip replacement on March 16, 2020 and I can justify honestly say that I an pain free with no restrictions. I never would have imagined that in less than a month I could do anything I want to do. Dr. Hudanich is an amazing doctor that truly cares about each one of his patients. I can't say enough about his amazing surgical skills!!! Well done Doc!! You're the best!!

I have done both my knee replacements with Dr.,Hudanich and my recovery has been excellent. The first two weeks are the most challenging for obvious reasons--inflammation due to surgery and so forth. However, I was able to return back to my normal duties.

My brother, who had a knee replaced somewhere else had an entirely different experience. He was not able to walk and/or return to normal duties in about 90 days. He decided that, based on my experience he would do his next one with Dr. Hudanich and he did! His experience? Nothing less than excellent. We have been referring patients to Dr. Hudanich constantly just by sharing our own experience. He and his staff are the best!
