My 1st visit with Dr. Rutherford was for a severe pain in my right leg which I thought it might need a replacement since the pain was so severe. (I had already been to another doctor for the same reason. ) He diagnosed it, gave me a steroid injection and my pain was gone overnight! I knew then, he was the right choice. Later, I did need knee replacement in the left leg and knew he would be the one doing it with complete success. I would recommend him to anyone, he's the best!

He knows his stuff. He explains everything well and doesn’t rush you in and out and makes sure he answers all your questions. I would highly recommend him! Excellent bedside manner. I just love him.

Took the time, not rushed, to evaluate, advise, explain, listen, and respond.

I am three weeks out from an anterior left hip replacement. I can't thank Dr. Rutherford and the entire Emerge team enough. I had no pain in my hip at all after the surgery.

He was very pleasant and listened well. He explained things very well and patiently answered all my questions. This was my first consult with him and I was very pleased.

Dr. Rutherford is an excellent clinician and highly skilled surgeon. My partial knee replacement resulted in zero further problems with that portion of my knee and the recovery went very well. I would recommend him to anyone for a similar operation. Further, he is a very friendly, caring and approachable individual that truly has your care uppermost in his mind.
