Dr. Kanellakos is just a fantastic Doctor. We discussed options about an issue with my hip and came to there conclusion that replacement was the best option, and he did a great job. So much so that he has also repaired a torn meniscus for me. Highly recommended!

Dr. Kanellakos and his assistants and staff have all given me excellent care and services at every appointment and procedure. I first met him when he set my son's broken arm several years ago. I went to him when I was having hip pain, and finally took his advice to get a total hip replacement. He explained everything clearly and everything went smoothly and as planned, if not better! I only wish I had done it sooner!

Dr. Kanellakos replaced my right hip four months ago. As I professional gardener, I lead a physically active life, and I'm happy to say that the recovery was very much as he predicted, and the new hip has allowed me to return to my work with an ease and comfort I haven't had in years. Thank you!

Dr Kanellakos was my surgeon for both hip replacements. Everything was carefully planned and orchestrated by his office and Morristown Medical Center. I can't say enough about how smoothly everything went. Dr. Kanellakos is attentive, responsive to questions and easy to interact with. I can only assume his skills are excellent as both my new hips are excellent!

misdiagnosis about 2 years ago. I had torn labrum of the hip is what I found out recently. He suggested I had a flexor injury and to rest it. He did not recommend an MRI.. after reading about the hip and learning what doctors should do, it surprises me that this guy could make such a mistake.

My experience with Dr. Kanellakos was successful and gratifying. His care in listening to the problem, diagnosis, explanations, surgery, and post-operative care has been excellent. I would consider his skills and services for other related orthopedic issues that may arise in the future.

I highly Dr. Kanellakos as an orthopedic surgeon. I was not happy w/my previous orthopedic surgeon and was referred to Dr. Kanellakos by one of his patients. Dr. Kanellakos and his staff provided professional, timely care in alleviating pain in my hip on June 26. I feel like I got my life back - No More Pain. I would not hesitate to go back/recommend patients to him.
