  • Dr. Talmo performed a right knee replacement on me 6 years ago. I just had my six year review with him and he was just as interested in my case today as he was six years ago. He is a talented orthopedic surgeon who really knows his stuff. I have no pain, excellent extension and excellent flexion. What more could one ask. A wonderful and caring doctor. Keep up the great work.

  • Could not be happier with Dr. Talmo. He replaced my left hip in an outpatient procedure at a Salem, NH surgical center -- spinal and sedative, no general anesthesia. Initial consultation was informative and Dr. Talmo is a good listener, laying out the options and what to expect. His office is responsive and helpful with scheduling and procedures. The surgery and recovery were amazingly easy, as Dr. Talmo thought they would be. Surgery on Monday started at 9am, walking with crutches at 11:30, out the door at 12:30. By Saturday I was able to walk a mile and a half with a cane. Back at work, cane-free, two weeks after surgery, and my co-workers all wanted my doctor's name. Never needed pain meds stronger than Tylenol. Now six weeks out, all swelling is gone and there's nothing other than the thin scar to remind me I ever had surgery.

  • Liked that Dr. Talmo is knowledgeable on the anterior approach in hip replacement. Perfectionist!

  • I had a total hip replacement by Dr. Talmo and I cannot say enough about what a positive experience I had. I could barely walk before surgery and literally a week later I felt pain free and now have total range of motion.

  • Dr Talmo fantastic had a total knee replacement it was complicated In just 6 week flexion 125 and 0 straight Walking a mile in 16 min and riding a stationary bike 30 min No more PT required and feeling great Thank You Dr Talmo And NEB Staff

  • I have had two surgeries with Dr. Talmo and am inevitably going to need two more. He is so personable and straightforward. Great "bedside manner." But also a skilled surgeon. I appreciate that he is very conservative - not inclined to jump into joint replacement until it become absolutely necessary. Also appreciate that once the joint fails entirely, he tries to schedule surgery as soon as possible.
