I had a partial knee replacement by Dr Fish two weeks ago. I am walking unassisted (a little slowly) and my mobility and flection is gaining by the day. Dr Fish did a wonderful job and was very thorough when we looked at the choices of a partial versus a full replacement. My husband has had two surgeries by Dr Fish and both went very well. One was on his shoulder the other was on his knee. He is our go-to guy for orthopedics!

All a very positive experience. Pre-intra and post op experiences were excellent. The extreme circumstances in which it all occurred (COVID), made it even more important that things ran well. I am a former ortho surgical nurse and can not say enough about the staff at West Lakes, and Capital Ortho. Thanks to all for your service.
