Monticello, KY |
Dr Balthrope is a straightforward guy that gets you up and out of the hospital quickly. I have had 2 successful Hip replacementments, 1 knee replacement and a shoulder repair.

I'm a RN who has been driving 23 years, 5 days/week doing home health. My right knee was a painful mess. I would wrap my knee in warm towels to be able to sleep at night. Pain lived with me. I was referred to Dr. Balthrop and he LISTENED to me. He ask me about MY concerns and MY fears. Remember I have taken care of some awful messy knee surgeries, eg. MRSA, blood clots. My fear was blood clots esp. since 3 ladies in my community have died from clots after knee surgery. Dr. Balthrop is the best!
in Science Hill, KY |
Dr. Balthrop has been treating members of my family and me for many years. He is a very conscientious doctor who spends adequate time making sure that his patients understand his diagnoses. He addresses patients' concerns and always has treated us as we expect professionals to do. There have been times when he advised surgery (for my husband once and for me once) and other times when he has advised other treatment. Both times, our surgeries were very successful. I trust his judgment.
