Bruce Dixon, Greenwich, CT knee replacement and Achilles tendon repair
My story is very simple. Dr. Russell Warren replaced my left knee in January of 2005 with excellent results. In November of 2006, I tore my Achilles tendon on the same leg and Dr. Warren repaired that as well. I have had an excellent recovery from both. I play tennis 3-5 times a week, go on bike tours, and lead a very active physical life. NYC is only 35 miles from our home. My theory - why not go to the best when it's 35 miles away when others travel much greater distances to get there.
