in Akron, OH |
I have had two injections and will be getting a third. I am very happy with the results so far and have very little pain. I like Dr Kantaras he seems like a very caring doctor.
in akron, oh |
I had both knees done at the same time and I'm currently two weeks after surgery. My pain levels are way down from surgery day, I walk 1000 ft twice a day with a little help of a walker. I can dress myself, navigate stairs, shower by myself and sleep very well. He was awesome both before and after surgery! Some people told me I was crazy for doing both, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be!
Akron, OH |
My kneecap moved during the one year of therapy and visits back to him due to pain. He could not determine the problem and sent me to another ortho for 2nd opinion. That doctor examined my knee and immediate determined that the kneecap wasn't totally centered. I am disappointed in Kantaras's capability and effort in my care. He will NOT be doing my other knee.
Shelby, OH |
Kantaras performed my knee surgery about a year ago and I could not be more pleased. He answered every question without hesitation. I healed well and scarred to be expected...highly recommend.
in Cuyahoga Falls, OH |
He did my surgery in March 2013. He knew that I cycled and did distance walking. He knew I was very determined to get back on my bike. He did listen to me and explained with was going on with my knee (meniscus tear). I'm pretty self-aware and I am not afraid to ask questions. I'd go to him again but I sure hope I don't need to. He's not the most cheerful person but he knows his stuff and his area of expertise is more Sports Medicine and Injuries. After surgery, I rode 574 that year.
in Kent, OH |
Kantaras spent all of 5 minutes with me and did not explain my diagnosis or treatment options well. The man hardly examined me and seemed he had no patience for the information I was sharing and needed to understand.
