I've known Dr. Kuhn for 20 years now ! I have had numerous joint surgeries because of wear in my joints from working out for the past 33 years !!! I am a 72 year old woman & I credit Dr. Kuhn for giving me the opportunity to keep doing the things I'm use to doing !!! I am a power walker & have two new knees that have worked beautifully, for some time now ! I trust Dr.Kuhn completely and would recommend highly to anyone looking for a good Orthopedic Surgeon !!!

Dr. Kuhn was VERY cold, almost cruel with me and all I'd been going threw when I went to see him for a hip issue I was born with that had become unbearable to live with. I was in extreme pain, he admitted he could tell I was and that I had a lot of inflammation, yet he wouldn't so much as give an anti-inflammatory med or a muscle relaxer for severe spasms interfering with my sleep and quality of life. I cried while trying to explain it again before leaving with a nurses help and he blew me off.

I was traveling with girlfriends to view fall colors in New Hampshire. I tripped and fell in our hotel room and hip replacement stem penetrated my femur. Local hospital sent me to Maine Hospital in Portland and I was fortunate to get Dr. Kuhn. He detailed how my surgery was done with no weight bearing on the leg for 10 to 12 weeks. When I returned home my orthopedic surgeon that did the hip replacement 10 years ago complemented Dr Kuhn's surgery. Thank you, Dr. Kuhn! Well done!

Very good experience. He took the time to ask me to explain my problem, asked questions and listened to the answers. He explained the diagnosis in detail and gave various options for treatment. Although there was no good news about my problem, I felt I had been fully evaluated in an individualized manner.
