Dr. Vani gave me back the ability to do the things I like to do. He recently performed both surgeries separately to replace both of my knees. He explained everything clearly from the first appointment, made recommendations that contributed to the success of both surgeries and now the follow-up is complete and I’m actively enjoying my life again. I have the highest confidence in Dr. Vani And would recommend him to anyone.

I would recommend Dr. Vani to anyone at any time . He's very straight to the point of what he thinks is best in his care for your health and speedy recovery. His positive attitude makes you feel very confident in his care. His personality is very caring, and he has a lot empathy for his patients. This I found in him as a patient . He spends enough time with you that you feel good when you walk out of the office. Everyone in the office is very friendly and show a lot of concern for the patients

1. He didn't see me until 40 minutes after my appointment time. 2. He diagnosed frozen shoulder, and treated with a steroid injection, then sent me for physical therapy. 3. Physical therapist said it wasn't frozen shoulder since I could still move it fairly well, and that treating trigger points should address the problem. 4. They got paid by insurance. I asked them to wipe out the $9 fee I owed. Twice said they'd investigate and get back to me. Never did, but managed to threaten collections.

I would definitely recommend my family and friends to choose Dr. Vani as their orthopedic surgeon. He shows compassion to your health issues by listening and explaining anything you ask.and repeating it so you fully understand. When I call to make an appointment the staff is always ready to get me in as quickly as possible. I have always seen the doctor at the time of the appointment never waiting too long. Every one on his staff is friendly willing to help you with any needs you may have.

I had double knee replacements, Dr. Vani did an awesome job, very attentive for possible infectio (infection rate increases with bilateral knee replacement) I never had an infection due to his watchful eye of himself & staff members. I can’t express my joy with his care, he is the BEST.

Dr. Vani did my knee replacement surgery 3 years ago. I have done extremely well, my knee could not have turned out better. I would definitely recommend him as orthopedic surgeon to anyone looking for a surgeon.

My experience with an appointment was great. Setting the appointment was easy and accommodated my schedule. The check in process was smooth and the wait time was short. All of the staff were courteous and friendly. Dr. Vani listened to my problems, had x-rays taken and treated the problems with care. Very professional and competent. I would recommend Ortho KC and Dr. Vani.

Dr. Vani has done two surgeries for me. He did partial knee replacements on both of my knees, at the same time, as I persuaded him to do. Several years later he removed a rod from my femur in my leg. He and all of the staff have always treated me as if I were a family member.
