Dr. Kenerly is one of the best surgeons I've had. If ever a recommendation was needed I would be the first to give one. With the help of Jesus, Dr. Kenerly fixed my left shoulder when no one else cared to. I'm very pleased with the out come of my shoulder replacement. Thank you sir. God Bless.

Very professional, did a great job!

His Christian values make seeing him a pleasure. He is very understanding, explains things on a level that is easily understood and listens...

My surgery turned out really well. My pain from the time of surgery has been minimal. At 6 weeks I had no discomfort at all. I should have decided to get my hip replacement done much earlier. I fully recommend Dr. Kenerly III

I had surgery on my shoulder in Jan. 2016. Dr. Kenerly did an excellent job. I could not be more pleased. I had pain all the time before the surgery, but since the surgery I am pain free. He is a very kind, compassionate, and excellent physician.

Dr. Kenerly is experienced with the Anterior Hip Replacement procedure. This procedure avoids much of the post operative rehab required in hip replacement surgery and allows a patient to resume a normal life much more quickly. I am presently 2 weeks and 3 days post surgery, have almost no swelling left and am ambulatory without a cane or walking stick. Another week and I should be back to my normal pre-arthritis self.

Dr. Kenerly has a great bedside manner. He relieved my stress and fear of going through a major double hip replacement. I'm doing great and if I have to have anymore orthopedic surgery done it will be with him

I would recommend Dr. Kenerly and his staff to anyone needing orthopedic services. They will get you in and get you seen about very professionally!!!
in Baxley, GA |
I was in lots of pain when I sat down and when I would get up. I could not squat down to pick up anything. Dr. Kenerly lll explained why I was having these problems, that I needed hip replacement to correct it and how he would do it. I had total hip replacement. I was walking with just a cane in two weeks. Walking without any aid in four weeks. Driving in five weeks. I can now squat down to pick up things. I would go back to Dr. Kenerly if I had to have any other surgeries of this kind.
in Hinesville, GA |
My experience with Dr. Kenerly and his staff over this past year has been amazing. After I finally made the decision to do a hip replacement, after just two weeks from surgery I already have more mobility then I have had in the last 10 years. Best decision I have ever made. Dr. Kenerly and his staff have made me feel so comfortable with my decision to get this done. The healing has been amazingly quick and I now look forward to living pain free.

Dr. Kenerly did my daddy's hip surgery yesterday. Daddy always talked highly of him & he was wonderful to him & our family!! He was very funny & pleasent and was very thorough about what he did during surgery! We were very happy with him!
