Outstanding, professional, and explained everything. Excellent experience. Dr. Shukla made me feel comfortable and was very concerned with my health. I would recommend Dr. Shukla to anyone.

I have been afraid for a long time to have knee surgery. I really like Dr. Shukla, I feel so comfortable with him doing my surgery. Thank you.

I had a total left knee replacement on Wednesday, December 11th and walked out of the hospital 24 hours later. I'd had a right knee replacement 6+ years ago but this one, performed by Dr. Shukla, was way better. I walked better and faster and with way less pain. My opioid use consisted of five OxyContin and 12 Tramadol. Physically, I am at the very least 10 days ahead of my previous knee surgery. Dr. Shukla is easy to talk with, spends time ensuring you understand the procedure, and the ROC staff have been helpful.
