    Treating Doctor:
  • “Dr. Zlotnicki explained everything. My knees are so bad. Can't wait for my knee replacement on both. He'll do the right one first. Little nervous, but ready to be able to walk without a lot of pain or no pain. He said he'll fix my knees. The staff was also great in his office.”

    Treating Doctor:
  • “I went to see Dr. Zlotnicki due to many years of pain in my knees. I had been advised over the past years that for me to keep getting shots to alleviate the pain was not going to last and that I needed total knee replacements on both legs. Dr. Zlotnicki recommended that I immediately do one knee and then do the other later. I chose to do my left knee first. Dr. Zlotnicki operated four weeks ago today. The operation was a total success! I have been doing my physical therapy for the last four weeks and now have a greater range of motion than in years with my left leg. There is still some stiffness in the knee, but that is constantly decreasing. The pain I had in that knee is gone. I will have Dr. Zlotnicki replace the knee in my right leg next winter.”

    Treating Doctor:
  • “Dr. Zlotnicki was by far the most impressive doctor I have ever met in all my years. This is why: he was easy to talk with, did not act hurried, answered all my questions, seemed genuine in doing what was best for me, spoke in terms I could understand, did not have the superior attitude so often found in physicians, and I felt very reassured of his competence.”
