Dr. Lang is an ultra qualified surgeon. And one who listens when you tell him your concerns. He uses the very latest techniques and is skilled in their use. My total knee replacement was a mere four months ago and my scar has virtually disappeared and the new knee is working perfectly! If or when my other knee needs surgery, Dr. Lang will be my absolute go to! I recommend him highly. There could not be anyone better.
