Home the next day and back in the game just weeks after knee replacement surgery
Warren Pettaway of Detroit knew he needed to have his left knee checked out when he could no longer keep up while officiating basketball. The pain got so bad that running up and down the court or quickly changing directions was too much for him to continue doing what he loved.
After talking to several people who had gone through knee replacement surgery and doing his own research, the 63-year-old decided it was time to talk to a doctor. He says he was fortunate to find Michael Charters, M.D., a fellowship trained joint replacement surgeon at Henry Ford Hospital.
Dr. Charters is a cut above the rest! My father has been struggling with a bad knee for several years and after exhausting all treatment options he was referred to a consult. Dr. Charters was very informative and extremely patient as my father and the rest of the family were quite worried being our first major procedure. Fearful or not this was our only option left and Dr. Charters and his team were there from start to finish. He quickly accommodated him in his busy schedule (as his pain was unbearable). The procedure went unbelievably well and most importantly so did the recovery as Dr. Charters was present all throughout or whenever we had any questions. At this point the only regret my father had was that he didn't choose to perform this surgery sooner as everything went so smoothly and according to plan thanks to the vast knowledge and experience of Dr. Charters and the rest of his staff. I refer him to almost everyone I come across in my own practice

As a younger patient for a total knee replacement you can imagine the hesitation I had in having this procedure. After speaking with Dr. Charters he was able to ease all my fears about the procedure. Dr. Charters spent a lot time with me going through the procedure, he made me feel like I was his only patient. The entire Henry Ford Medical Staff was terrific from the Medical assistants to the nurses and the Physical Therapists. I would recommend HFH and Dr. Charters to anyone.

Dr. Charters has wonderful social skills along with his exceptional surgical talent. He treats you with respect, answers all your questions and continually asks if you have any additional questions. As to his social skills, he took the time to call on a holiday because he was out of town when I reached out to his office on a follow up question, that gesture along with many others demonstrates his commitment to his patients.

Previous to hip surgery, I had a femur break, which did not heal properly and rod in femur broke. Was referred to Dr. Charters and Dr. Hoegler (femur doctor) at Henry Ford. They determined that a hip replacement would be a better fix than attempting another rod. Dr. Hoegler took out old rod. A week later, Dr. Charters did replacement. Wonderful! Walking without limp. No pain. Best I have been in six years. Would absolutely recommend Dr. Charters! No hesitation at all.

I was very nervous about what procedures would have to be done with my knee. I needed a total knee replacement of the left knee. The pain was so bad for about three years and now I'm pain free.

Not only is he an expert in his field, he has a wonderful personality. I would, and have, recommended him to everyone. I have not had any pain in my knee and my surgery was a year ago.

Very good experience . This is my second knee surgery,first one done at the same hospital. The recovery this time was phenomenal. I had to use very little pain meds, and was off a walker and onto a cane in 3 weeks, fully ambulatory in 5 weeks. I believe that this is largely due to the new protocol of intraoperative and perioperative pain medicaltion as well as the excellent pre op and post op management. Less bruising/ leg pain, less nausea. The staff was also caring and courteous.
