I just had total knee replacement by Dr. Woodson.
He is a very talented, bright, kind and personable surgeon. Dr. Woodson really cares about his patients and is quite funny as well, a very rare quality in an orthopedic surgeon, but this added to my healing process. He is very respected and has great relationships with his colleagues and sent me to the Best rehab center and the Best physical therapist. Dr. Woodson also has an amazingly wonderful staff especially Estela, who took me under her wings of kindness, until I was good to go. My surgery has changed my life and I have just retired and I cannot recommend Dr. Woodson higher. He has great gifts as a surgeon and as a person. He is the Best.
