Ratings for Dr. Steven Thaxter
Dr. Thaxter performed arthroscopic surgery on my knee after another doctor in Hanford operated on it and did not fix anything. I had a torn meniscus. I am very glad I found Dr. Thaxter, even with all the additional damage the other doctor caused, he fixed everything that was wrong. In fact, I WALKED out of the surgical center, post-op. I did physical therapy for a month, and my knee is better than it has been in years. I can't tell you how thankful I am to have a working, pain-free knee again. His office staff is a little snooty, but who cares as long as the doctor in the office can fix what's wrong with you?
This doctor has performed a plethora of surgeries for me [12 on knees and 2 on shoulder], he has always provided accurate and helpful information re: aftercare, and what each procedure entailed. He did for get to mention how one possible outcome [overgrowth in a cartilege transplanting(carticel)] happens in 5% of all cases. Overall, a very good surgeon, and I am very pleased with how the procedures turned out.
