Mrs. Monteverde, Tucson

I was scheduled to see Dr. Housman by his medical assistant, Zenia. I have to say working for Tucson Ortho and now being "the patient" I can see exactly how patients feel when they submit their own testimonials.

Sandra L., Tucson

Dr. Housman had my full confidence, so I opted to do both knee replacements at one time. I am a Sabino Canyon volunteer naturalist and volunteer patrol for the Coronado National Forest, therefore hiking (and biking 20-25 minutes every Sunday) is my life! I want to get back to my regular hiking form, so 2 knees it is! His professional...
