Just had my second hip replacement with Dr Karegeannes. He's a totally brilliant and talented surgeon. There is no better care anywhere than what one will receive with this man. He has performed total hip replacements on many of my friends all with excellent results. He has changed my life and I will always be grateful to him.

Dr. Karegeannes? experience and expertise is impressive. He is quiet and soft spoken, but will take the time to answer every question. My recovery was smooth, he instructed me every step of the way, and arranged for an excellent physical therapist. After five years, my mobility, teaching career, and pain-free living has been completely restored, and I have Dr. Karegeannes to thank for that. Hire a perfectionist, get perfect results.

I have had a hip replacement and a knee replacement over the past two years. The results have been better than I expected. Am I the person I was twenty years ago? No, and Dr Karegeannes never suggested anything else. Otherwise the entire time spent with Dr. Karegeannes was absent of bull. Would I do it over again. Absolutely.
in Asheville, NC |
Without notice, the doctor cancelled an appointment I had with him and dismissed me from his practice. I requested an explanation but never received any feedback. I had been a patient of his for about two years at the time of this occurrence and expected more from him..
