Kansas City, KS |
Dr. Vani replaced both of my knees in the last year. I have done well and would recommend him as a orthopedic surgeon. He is a jovial, friendly man!

Dr. Vani did my carpal tunnel release 13 days ago. From day 1 the numbness in my fingers was gone, and now I'm able to use my wrist and hand a lot more. I still have pain in my wrist, but I know that's normal and it will take a few months to get full function back. Overall though, Dr. Vani is a great surgeon.

Dr.Vani and his crew are wonderful. I could not have had better care for my knee replacement. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Sister Vickie Perkins

My experience with Dr. Vani was not good at all. He performed a total knee replacement on me. After an additional surgery on the replaced knee by Dr. Vani I am still not able to walk stairs. I will seek another surgeon for a third surgery and hopefully get good results. I have since talked to several people who have similar problems after their surgeries with him. My aunt is another.

Dr. Vani was thorough and friendly. I feel I was given good care, attention and advice. My only complaint is having to pay $15 for paperwork that I needed to have to be released back to work.
