Recently had a left knee total knee replacement done by Dr. Michael C. Mariorenzi….an expert using Mako Robotic surgery. Fantastic and amazing experience. I had easily managed pain issues and quick recovery of range of motion. I had a physical therapist come three days a week for four weeks and followed all exercises as the therapist and Dr. Mariorenzi required and Iced for swelling on a regular basis Used a walker for four days and then switched to a cane. By the end of week two, no cane needed and was able to drive. There are still weeks to go for full recovery, but I am very pleased with the results. Your experience may differ, but you should consider Dr. Mariorenzi , the BEST orthopedic surgeon in Rhode Island!
