Patient Reviews

“Dr. Adigweme is a great surgeon and I would recommend him to anyone needing knee or hip replacement surgery! He was easy to understand, friendly, and got me the help I needed. “Dr. Obi” as he’s nicknamed is awesome and so is UCF Health!” – Review from Google

“Dr. Adigweme performed both of my husband’s knee replacements. My husband was kind of a complicated case because he has several health issues, but Dr. Adigweme always made us feel that my husband was in good hands. He listened to all of our concerns and answered all questions. His care for my husband before, during and after the surgery was excellent.”    – Review from Google
