About Trevor Murray, MD

I found a great parking place, the office is as close to the car as it's possible to bethe staff as very helpful. I appreciated Dr. Murray taking the time to do the injections. The knees were very agitated afterward which is normal. At about a week afterward, which is where we are right now they are settling in and less painful today than last week on my way in for the visit. I hope to get a more lasting relief. I'll let him know at my August visit.

I have an unusual situation where Knee x-rays don't necessarily indicate the need for a total knee replacement and Dr. Murry was skeptical on how to proceed. I had arthroscopic surgery In Feb 2022 by Dr. Silko to remove a "body" floating around In my knee. He couldn't find it but did find, under folded cartilage, that my knee is bone on bone inside. The pics he took confirm that the cartilage is shredded and inside my knee is bone on bone. Dr. Murry explained that it Is not usual to have Internal pictures to review before a knee replacement. He was very honest about his skepticism and we had another consult on May 11. After reviewing all facts, he said something like "if I didn't think this is a good surgery for you and It would not Improve your lifestyle and allow you to get back to your normal activities, I would tell you NO" - that comforted me knowing that he had my best interest at heart and that he was being honest with me.
