Anonymous (RateMDs) He replaced my left knee and I can walk normal again. He is very kind and caring, the staff are wonderful.
Diana Engellman (Feedback) He is the best doctor! He has replaced my knee and it is so much better and is going to replace my other knee in a few weeks. I would tell everyone to go to him.
EM (RateMDs) Dr. Ludwig gave me a new lease on life. He replaced my 2 knees which were bone on bone with arthritis. The pain was unbearable, but with his help and 2 new knees I'm a new person and enjoying life! Thank you Dr. Ludwig. I always recommend him, he's great!!!
