My total knee replacement experience was beyond my expectations! I was hesitant yet blessed with so many positive encounters that I will not hesitate to have my other knee replaced with Dr. Rodney Henderson in the same manner.  

I am a Personal Trainer, so being able to be on my feet and active as soon as practicable after major surgery was critical! Dr. Henderson recommended outpatient surgery, to which I was reluctant since the “industry standard” for total knee replacement is 3-4 days hospital stay. Dr. Henderson’s nurse, Kathy, went out of her way to accommodate surgery for me in a timeframe that would limit my time away from training clients, a significant financial consideration for me! The surgery was smooth and the attentiveness of the Surgery Center staff both before and after the surgery was professional, attentive, courteous and thoughtful. I was back training clients four weeks after surgery, and returned to my own training less than eight weeks after surgery. I am now in-training for the San Diego Century Bike Ride in May, an event I could not have considered before my fortunate referral to Dr. Henderson. His positive outlook, passion about his work, humor, encouragement and support provided the necessary reassurance before embarking on such major surgery. He made me feel at ease with my decision the first time I met him, and I have no regrets. In fact, Dr. Henderson told me the only question I would have after surgery is, “Why did I wait so long?!” He was right!
