Recovery Questions & Answers
What They’re Saying

Probably the most life changing event for me so far. Double knee replacement at 6:00 am, home at 3:30 that afternoon. Pain was not bad after the first couple of days. No walking assistance after the second day. Drove in 7 days. I am now 2-1/2 months post-operation and people can not believe how changed I am now that I walk pain-free for the first time in 20 years. My only regret is not doing it much sooner.

I found Dr. Odom by way of being a VERY satisfied surgical patient of Dr. Chris Miller (who no longer sees shoulder patients). Dr. Odom was fantastic: great 'bedside manner', very attentive and an an active listener. He immediately ordered appropriate tests, and administered a cortisone injection into my left shoulder to try to get some immediate relief for me. He formulated a care plan that worked for me, and scheduled timely follow-up visits. No surgery needed this time, but I am confident that I would once again be in the best hands if it was indicated. Highly recommend!

Dr. Miller and his staff are gracious to provide detailed guidance about every step of your treatment. My total knee replacement surgery could not have gone better. The care and concern shown by Dr. Miller and team along the way made the recovery process so much easier. I would recommend him to everyone.

Dr. Odom is a great Doctor and person He is compassionate about your situation and takes time to talk to you about what is going on with your body. I felt truly cared for. I would highly recommend Legacy Orthopedics to anyone!

I had bilateral knee replacements on April 16th and am now two weeks out. I'm already walking without assistance and am diligently doing my PT - I was so fearful of surgery, but Dr. Miller is amazing. My experience thus far has been fantastic and every PT or medical assistance staff would tell me I had the best surgeon when I tell them Dr. Miller repaired my knees (his skill and precision are well known in the DFW orthopedic field). I have RA and was almost unable to walk......the future looks bright! Keep up the good work Dr.Miller and staff!

Dr. Miller did an excellent job! I had a knee scope and I'm doing great only one month after surgery! I am going to PT and it is going well

I had bilateral knee replacements done by Dr. Chris Miller in September 2019, and it was a wonderful experience! If needed, I recommend both knees done at the same time. The hospital was fantastic and the office staff was very helpful. His assistants, Selena, took my calls right away, and Rachel was patient and helpful with me when I had questions. My pain levels were always tolerable, I expected it to be much more painful than what it was. Physical Therapy next door was excellent. I worked with Jolene and she was friendly, considerate to pain levels yet pushed me to mobility. I can't say enough about the professionals Dr. Miller surrounds himself within his practice. I highly recommend it and would do it again in a minute. Well worth it!
