      Dr. Kilgore did a full right knee replacement many years ago and i have not experienced any problems at all. I was so pleased with the outcome I scheduled an appointment with him to see if he could help me with my back pain. He recommended Dr. PIGEON who did a magnificent operation. This group is a fully functional team and would recommend to anyone.

      Dr. Kilgore and staff are fantastic. He did a total knee replacement for me on April 27, 2016. I can walk with a walker very easily and soon will not even need assistance. A different surgeon replaced my left knee 2 years ago and I still have problems. I highly recommend Dr. Kilgore.

      Great experience with Dr Kilgore. I felt comfortable and at ease. He explained to me the cause and treatment for my issue. Also his PA Chris, is the same way. Puts you at ease and is very easy to speak with.
