My Mom lives in Reno. She's 66 and needs a knee replacement. Has anyone had experience with knee replacement at any age with any surgeons in the Reno/Sparks area who good at what they do BUT at the same time are also kind/caring, and compassionate with their patients, take time to read all the notes, without rushing them out the door?

It's a gamble and a struggle to just take the phone book and do the ole 'well, he/she sounds good, guess we'll go with them' approach. I trust a word of mouth opinion on a doc above all other sources. Because, we all know that just because they have MD at the end of their name doesn't mean they are the right fit for every patient. Not to diss on docs by any means - it's just tough to find the right personality types sometimes.

Thanks very much and take good care!
