Professional and Compassionate Surgeon!

One and one half years ago, I came to Dr. Brett Gilbert’s Durham office beset with misshapen legs and two very painful, bone on bone knees. Soon after my office visit, Dr. Gilbert completed my first total knee replacement surgery, and one year later, my second. Thanks to the medical skills of Dr. Gilbert and his team, just several months later I am enjoying a life filled with pain free mobility! Not only is Dr. Gilbert a most professional surgeon, but he is a compassionate, funny and nice individual. I highly recommend Dr. Gilbert for your total knee replacement surgery, and appreciate the opportunity to tell everyone how great I feel. Thank you Dr. Gilbert!

Skilled and talented surgeon

I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Gilbert and TOA. I had my one-year follow-up for a complete hip replacement today. My appointment was 8:30; I arrived early and was seen early. I don’t believe I have ever waited more than 10 minutes past my appointment time to be called in. His talent is amazing. The day after my surgery, I was on my feet, and NONE of the pre-existing pain was present! A very skilled and talented surgeon. Another testament of his bedside manner, my surgery was scheduled for a Monday morning – I received a personal telephone call from Dr. Gilbert the evening prior…a Sunday, asking if I had any concerns or questions and that he would see me the following day. I have never had that type caring from any physician! From my experiences, I highly recommend Dr. Gilbert for any joint needs. He will be my surgeon of choice.
