“My experience was excellent! I am not local to the Eugene area, however my local orthopedic surgeons were not willing to do my knee replacement. I'd had several previous reconstructive surgeries and I think my local surgeons were not willing or able to attempt my surgery. I'm 9 months post knee replacement and even though i am not quiet completely healed my knee surpasses my expectations. Thank you Dr. Jewett !!”
– Samantha P.
“Dr. Jewett is a top notch Doctor! He is kind, professional and very sensitive! When I decide to go ahead with my hip surgery he will be the surgeon I choose. He listened to my concerns about my fear of surgery and said he would be there when I decide I am ready.”

“I had hesitations about surgery but Dr. Jewett was through about what he was going to do. I felt confident about moving forward with the surgery..”
– Diana K.
“Dr. Jewett performed simultaneous bilateral knee replacement on me. Both my knees were in horrible shape due to severe arthritis. I live a very active outdoor lifestyle, however, it became increasingly painful and difficult to continue doing the things I enjoy. After injections and meds were unable to put a dent in my pain relief I decided it was time to see Dr. Jewett. He is an amazing surgeon and doctor. My questions and concerns were addressed professionally and in a way which helped give me the confidence to proceed with this major surgery. The surgery went extremely well as did the recovery and rehab. I was actually in more pain before the surgery than after. I am able to already do things now that I hadn't been able to do for years. We are very fortunate to have such an outstanding surgeon in our community.”
– Thomas J.
“Totally happy with the appt. Wasn't pressured into surgery, in fact, was impressed that he felt it provident to delay to a time when pain and ability to move was much worse.”
– David S.
“Dr. Jewett was personable and expressed sincere interest in my orthopedic problems. He listened to what I had to share and fully explained what would be done when he replaced both knees. I felt reassured this was the procedure that needed to be done to remedy my pain and mobility issues and that continued injections would only be a temporary fix at best. I feel completely confident in Dr. Jewett's skill as a surgeon and assured that my surgery will be successful. I was provided all the information I needed to make an informed decision and was impressed that a large notebook explaining all aspects of the surgical procedure and my care was provided, including exercises I could do before surgery to facilitate the recovery and recuperation process. I was treated with respect from the moment I entered Slocum to the time I left the clinic.”
– Barbara R.
“Dr. Jewett is great.”
– James H.
“Very satisfied with Dr Jewett's skill and professionalism and for how he listened and addressed my questions and concerns.”
– Keith D.
“I recommend Dr. Jewett to friends all over the country. He answered all the questions I had in Pre-op and Post-op about the surgery until I understood the procedure and the recovery process. I no longer had any knee pain after surgery which allowed me to resume my life without the constant pain. Everyone I have talked to has had the same experience with knee replacements. It is amazing that we waited as long as we did. The recovery was difficult but not impossible when I did what I was told as far as physical therapy and even medications go.”
– Jim R.
“Very Professional, Extremely Pleased. Dr. Jewett's MA Brandi is helpful, compassionate and very competant.”

He educated us on the problem and followed thru with making sure I was recovering as I should. He was very good at explaining exactly what would happen and what to expect and didn't miss a thing. Thank You Dr. Jewett !”

“Doctor Brian Jewett is a good person and a great surgeon. He has impressive skills and inspires confidence. I have enjoyed getting to know Doctor Jewett before, during, and after my total hip replacement, and look for opportunities to recommend his services to folks in need of and investigating orthopedic care. The Slocum Center for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine is fortunate to have Dr. Jewett on staff, and we are lucky to have him in our community. Five stars, all the way!”
– Benton E.
“Thorough, compassionate, confident. I’ve recommended Dr. Jewett to my friends. He began with a physical exam where he touched me, moving my hip and leg to different positions. Dr. Jewett diagnosed hip bursitis, gave me a cortisone injection and ordered physical therapy. I have been comfortable and able to walk without limping since April. Without him, I might have had back surgery and still suffered hip pain. Thank you, Dr. Jewett.”
– Cynthia J.
“Dr. Jewett performed two total knee replacements, three months apart. I was well-prepared for these experiences by Dr. Jewett and staff at Slocum, the process leading up to and following both operations was smooth and professional, and Dr. Jewett and staff were available for questions and updates. I was confident in a full recovery and that confidence was not misplaced. After years of deteriorating function from arthritis in both knees, I am now back to riding my bike, walking long distances without pain, swimming, and participating in aerobics such as Zumba Gold. I am very happy to have my life back and am thankful to Dr. Jewett and staff.”

– Dale M.

“I have had two hip replacements. I followed the exercises before and after and the recovery was remarkable. My husband had his replaced at 86 years old and his recovery was a snap. We are both pain free and recommend surgery to many of our friends.”
– Nola S.
“Dr. Jewett was wonderful through my diagnosis and hip replacement surgery. Dr. Jewett was kind and patient, and was direct in his discussion with me. I clearly remember him saying that this will be good. And it HAS been! He worked with my shoulder surgeon, Dr. Hoellrich, and my hip replacement was done between my two shoulder replacements, so I could take advantage of sequential healing. Healing was much easier, and in four months, it was all done, and I was out of pain. Today I am free to hike, take my college PE classes, do my daily walks with my two dogs, ride my bicycle, garden, sit cross-legged, run up and down steps, sit for a couple hours at meetings, sleep on both sides and on my back, and easily carry my groceries, or lift my pups into the car for a ride. I am so glad I had my hip joint replaced and that Dr. Jewett did it for me! He is a skilled surgeon and a fine human being. He has a great sense of humor, too! He and Dr. Hoellrich are the best!”
– Nancy R.
“Dr. Jewett tackles the most complicated knee replacements with confidence, competence, and knowledge. My replacement was complicated by my multiple sclerosis, periodic limb movement disorder, and restless leg syndrome. I had no doubt that I was fortunate enough to be treated by the best surgeon possible, highly regarded not only by patients but also by fellow orthopedic specialists.”
– Jeri C.

“Dr. Jewett performed two hip replacements for me and one could not find a more kind, positive, and encouraging surgeon. And, hopefully, I won't need any future surgeries but if I ever did, I would seek help from Slocum!”
