Quicker recovery

Dr. Brett Gilbert is one of, if not the best, Orthopaedic surgeons that I have had the privilege of being a patient of. He is very professional and efficient! I have had two surgeries performed by Dr. Gilbert and have been advised by my therapist that his patients seemed to progress quicker than most and their range of motion after surgery seems to be higher than most other patients. It is a good feeling to have confidence in a surgeon, knowing that everything that can be done will be done to perfection. I would advise anyone who is having Orthopaedic problems to contact Triangle Orthopaedics and make an appointment with this gentleman. I would travel long distance to be able to be seen and treated by him. Dr. Brett Gilbert and NC Specialty Hospital deserve the highest ratings possible!!!

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!
