    Comments: Dr. Branam performed a total knee replacement on my left knee at UC Health Westchester Hospital. He and his physician assistant Nick were very informative about the procedure as to what to expect prior to surgery, during surgery, and following surgery. They answered all of my questions and concerns about their method and procedure. I had previous knee replacement on the right knee by another surgeon and at a different hospital that I was not happy with. It was great to wake up with a drain in my knee to drain fluids to keep the knee from swelling out of control. I was able to get up and move around the next morning with very little pain and less meds than the other knee surgery. I was able to straighten my knee and bend back 109 degrees the morning after surgery. My experience at UC Health Westchester Hospital was awesome and everyone was kind and helpful from the time I checked in until I left three days later. Nursing staff was the best I have ever experienced. Food menu was like being in a four-star hotel, ordering from large menu and you get to call it in when you are hungry. Totally the best experience from Dr. Branam, Nick and the entire hospital staff!
