Dr. Bowling and his staff have been incredible to me. I had a poorly done hip replacement by a different surgeon and he has helped me investigate what went wrong and what we can do to make it better. He also was willing to offer his help when others wouldn’t. He is everything healthcare is supposed to be about.

Had a total knee replacement 20 months ago. Have not had a day without pain and discomfort since that day. Tried to see Dr Bowling in numerous occasions and was only allowed to see PAs even knowing I was having issues with the knee replacement. At the year anniversary of the replacement still having much pain, swelling, and mobility issues. Tried to see Bowling again and was told it would be about three months before I could. Pulled my records and changed doctors. MRIs, etc from new doctor. Put me back into PT to try to see if this would help. After 7 months of PT it has been determined this knee needs to be replaced. I do not recommend Bowling as I feel once he has done the surgery he is finished with you. Problems or no problems. He may be a great surgeon but no doctor is any good if they won’t see their patients. I DO NOT recommend him.

Totally satisfied with a right knee replacement two years ago and left hip five years ago. Having my left knee replaced later this summer. I have osteoarthritis in most of my joints, and Dr. B and his staff have made my life normal again. I have been to other orthopedic surgeons in this area, but they kept me dependent on drugs and cortisone much longer than I thought necessary. Dr. Bowling gets right to the problem and fixes it. I went from crutches and canes to total mobility after surgery. I cannot recommend him and his staff highly enough.

Dr. Bowling is an excellent surgeon who takes time with his patients for explanations, questions or whatever that patient needs. As a result, he runs behind quite often. His two PA’s are equally as excellent. I, personally, enjoyed the transparency provided by the PA’s and the entire Bowling Orthopaedics staff and didn’t feel the need to see Dr. Bowling for every visit. Most recently, I made the decision to have hip replacement surgery and bingo… I received notice of ALL appointments & documentation required pre, during and post surgery. Dr. Bowling has done also done torn meniscus surgeries, both successfully. He is the BEST!!!!

Dr Bowling is an excellent surgeon and a kind, caring person. He listened to what I had to say, and was truly interested in finding the best treatment for my knee injury and pain. He also performed my husband's hip replacement surgery with the same remarkably great care and skill. I highly recommend Dr Bowling to anyone needing hip or knee care.

Dr Bowling is great I completely trust him with my orthpedic care. I have never been cared for by such a empathetic doctor. His bedside manners are great his knowledge and medical competency greatly ease my worries concerning my surgeries. In addition his additional PA Ryan is very, very good. Bowling Ortho gets 5 STARS from me.

Dr Bowling is absolutely amazing. My family (daughter, hubby, mom, dad, mother-in-law & step dad) have all been seeing Dr B for at least 10 years and have never had any problems. Most recently, on Monday he performed a hip replacement on my kids 79 yr old papa with no problems. I would definitely recommend Dr B and his wonderful staff!

Dr Bowling did a total knee replacement on me. I've had excellent results. The rehab is tough but worth it. He's very busy so if you takes awhile to get in to see him and to get the surgery scheduled if you decide to do it do don't procrastinate!

Dr. Bowling came highly recommended from several people. He replaced both of my knees at the same time. I am now 4 months post-op and doing very well. A friend had the same thing done the next day by another Dr. and I came through much better, with less pain and a better result. The only problem I have is with his office. My first time seeing Dr. Bowling I did not see him until 2 hours past the scheduled time, next time it was an hour.

Dr. Bowling replaced my right knee in May 2015. One year later and the resulting knee surgery is obviously very poor quality. My knee wobbles, and still hurts. My left knee was replaced by another doctor five years ago, and it's great. Therefore, I do have a comparison. Dr. Bowlings PA saw the knee and suggested it be redone. Another major surgery because the first one was wrong! If I were to choose that Avenue. I wouldn't choose Dr. Bowlin to do it Carolyn Gardner

Dr Bowling has replaced both of my hips. He is an amazing doctor with a most pleasant personality. He also replaced my 88 year old mothers hip replacement, which was previously done in the 1960's. We had contacted many other doctors and hospitals but we're refused due to the complicated problem of removing her previous experimental hip replacement. Dr Bowling understood the problem and was willing to help my mother. The surgery went well. I will always be grateful to DrJack Bowling.
