Care Philosophy

How do I practice medicine? SImply put, I work to develop a partnership with my patients. Probably the most important thing I need to know is how your physical problem affects your life- more specifically your quality of life. My goal is to develop a dialogue with you, through which I strive to help you understand your unique orthopaedic pathology and your treatment choices. Many patients I see for their orthopaedic problems can be managed with conservative care- in other words, just because you come into the orthopaedic "surgery" office, does not mean you will necessarily need surgery. If a non-surgical option is available, I will explain that treatment in detail. If we, collectively, decide that surgery is the best treatment choice for you, we provide you with the resources and education to help you understand the entire process- from pre-operative treatment, to the surgery itself and then through the recovery process.

Dr. Kaper's Reviews

Likelihood of recommending Dr. Kaper to family and friends
based on 2 total reviews (2 with comments)
Dr. Kaper Says:

One of the challenges I face in my practice is time management. My office is very careful about scheduling office visits. However, I will occasionally find myself late for scheduled appointments. If this occurs, it is typically because of an emergency or because another patient's problem is more complex, therefore requiring additional time. If I am late for your appointment, I do apologize.

I had a partial knee replacement as he suggested six month ago and so far I am satisfied with result.
in Phoenix, AZ |
Dr. Kaper is a very gifted surgeon. I had a complete anterior right hip replacement done in June 2017. Within three weeks, I was feeling great and able to do all the things that I was doing prior to surgery, without pain. I love the thoroughness of Dr. Kaper. He has a very efficient, caring professional staff that guide you with timelines and procedures. When meeting with Dr. Kaper, I was most impressed with how well he listened to my concerns and then explained patiently in layman lang.
