Ask your ortho doc: If you had recent surgery it's best to discuss with your orthopedic surgeon as they often prefer to work with specific physical therapists that are familiar with their precautions/preferences etc.

There is no best: There is no best physical therapy clinic in any geographic location. Ask your surgeon who he/she likes to use for patients after having this surgery. If you don't get an acceptable answer then start at the major teaching institution such as ucsf.
