Francis McMahan's Total Knee Replacement

Francis McMahan had total knee replacement surgery in January 2012. Here's her story.
On Jan. 10, I had a total knee replacement surgery performed by Dr. Richard Illgen at UW Hospital and Clinics in Madison. I feel very blessed to have chosen Dr. Illgen as my surgeon.
In checking, I found that he has an excellent reputation as a orthopedic surgeon. I found Dr. Illgen to be very competent, kind and respectful. I knew immediately upon meeting him for my pre-op appointment that I had confidence in him.
The post-operative care by all of the orthopedic staff who attended to me was also excellent. If you have a choice, I suggest without reservation, that you choose Dr. Richard Illgen for your surgeon.
