This surgeon was submitted to G.O.S. by Denise Tiedemann. Denise commented in her entry:
Dr Winakur listens. He has an amazing understanding of what the knee, hip, and shoulder replacements mean to his patients who have been suffering for so long. He treats each patient individually and works out a plan with them. Age is not always a factor when considering if a patient really needs a replacement, he also takes into consideration the quality of life. He really is an outstanding surgeon. He has great results. I am one of them!Denise Tiedemann
