    My wife had a stem cell procedure performed on her knee which prove to be very successful. I was very impressed with Dr. Wagner and his attentiveness to her during the process. I recommended Dr. Wagner to two other individuals and I am preparing a procedure myself on my left hip. The professionalism and attentiveness provided by all the staff is impressive and appreciated.
