Dr. Korchek performed a total knee replacement for me in July 2017. He is a great and caring surgeon, who told me what to expect and followed up with me to ensure recovery success. I will definitely have him perform my second knee replacement when the time comes to fix the other knee.

I've had Doctor Korchek for more than 15 years for help with my knees. As an avid tennis player I had three orthoscopic surgery, and finally total knee replacement. I would recommend him to any one with knee problems. He also treated my husband successfully with his knees.
