“First consult with Dr. Nipper. He left it up to me as to what I wanted to do and was not aggressive about immediate surgery. He listened to my reasons about postponing and was very honest about his experiences with patients who waited. Dr. Nipper was very understanding and at the same very realistic about my ability to ambulate.”
