I've had quite a few surgeries all through your hospital. The last surgery was a total knee replacement. Dr. Bredthauer was wonderful. Such a nice man. So professional! His Nurse was great and Brian Fontana was A bonus! Very knowledgable, caring, and has a great personality! I recommend Ortho Nebraska to anyone.
