Dr Lancaster has previously performed replacements of both my hips. Each surgery resulted in excellent outcomes. This visit was for knee pain. His explanation of what is happening in both my knees clearly explained the reason for pain. He injected both knees, and the next morning I was able to walk downstairs with almost no pain. A tremendous improvement. He is friendly, organized, and highly experienced, definitely a doctor to trust.
