“Since 2014 I have had both knees (bilateral) and both hips replaced, after a lifetime of disability. For the first time in over 50 years I am pain free and completely mobile. (I was out shoveling snow this morning!) Dr Masri is brilliant and he has an amazing assistant in Melanie. If you are lucky enough to be referred to that clinic just be patient when stuck in long waits for your appointments. The results will be worth it.” – Jean Hamilton
