What People Say About Dr. Kenneth Bramlett, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

As a new patient with Dr. Bramlett, I had no concept of what to expect. The man is concise, capable, and pragmatic. He repaired a Morton's neuroma that had bothered me for a number of years. I'm only one week out from surgery and am doing amazingly. I enjoy his quick wit and his keen ability to pinpoint issues, even if it means I must lose weight for him to even discuss a possible knee replacement. I've become a real 'loser' and am glad of it. I look forward to a long-time relationship with this knowledgeable man.

Dr. Bramlett is the best! He repaired my broken ankle several years ago, then my left shoulder and, recently, my right shoulder. The recovery time has been amazing and my pain is minimal. I highly recommend Dr. Bramlett!!

On October 2, 2018 I had my second ComforMIS total knee replacement this year with Dr. Bramlett. I can't say enough about this surgery, it was great! For me this was a blessing for my knee, NO MORE PAIN! If you are reading this and need total knee replacement this is the way to go. After surgery all pain was gone, walked every day, was back to what I wanted to do within two weeks. Dr. Bramlett and ConforMIS are the best !!!! Minimally invasive total joints are the future.

In my experience he was rude and appeared not to care that he was rude. He thought it was appropriate to pinch an inch to let me know that I was too heavy! I never graced his door with my presence again even though my knee scope was not completely healed. I can stand on a street and be insulted for free it should not be something I nor my peehip provider has to pay a surgeon to do!!!! He has NO bedside manner!

I have had four surgeries with Dr. Bramlett. He and his team have always been kind, welcoming, attentive, and caring. With all of my surgeries, he has tried to get me scheduled promptly, usually the week of the diagnosis, which I appreciated. Knowing that I was preparing to leave the country for vacation, he immediately took care of an issue that I had so that the trip would be possible. I have recommended him to many of my friends. He is the best!!! Ann is too!!!

After 8 or more surgeries, during one of which I acquired MRSA, I found Dr. Bramlett. When I first visited him, I couldn't walk. He had numerous diagnostics done (re: MRSA); he sent me for a consultation with a plastic surgeon; he reluctantly did knee replacement (reluctant because failure almost guaranteed for pts with MRSA, but it was the only hope for me to walk again). I walked perfectly until the MRSA took over. He offered incredible emotional support when I had to have leg amputated

Dr. K. Bramlett operated on both of my shoulders – a rotator cuff, and a year later for a bone spur and biceps reattachment. Both arms were weakened by over 50%. Dr. Bramlett’s expertise was evident in both cases. When the bicep tear required a more expedited operation, he quickly moved it up two days to insure success. It's clear he cares for his patients and does brilliant work in the OR. How much are two good arms worth to a healthy 71-year old? Dr. Bramlett got them back for me!

Wow. If you don't have time to beat around the bush; if you like the quick, straight story from a seasoned professional, Dr. Bramlett's your guy. This whole organization is the ultimate in efficiency. Dr. Bramlett not only answered my diagnosis questions, he answered the ones I should have asked/forgot to ask. His support staff stepped in afterward and guided me through the administrative side for surgery. I wish every service provider in every industry I deal with was this efficient!

Dr. Bramlett performed a hip arthroscopy on my right hip to correct a hip impingement and torn labrum. Everything went better than expected. I would definitely recommend Dr. Bramlett. He knows his stuff!

Dr. Bramlett has replaced my right knee and, most recently, scoped my left knee. Both procedures were successful. I highly recommend Dr. Bramlett. He is simply the best.

I was very dissatisfied with my local care and a friend recommended Dr. Bramlett. We drove to Birmingham and I had hip replacement surgery within a few weeks. I was very satisfied and had the second hip done six months later. You have to follow his instructions for rehabilitation. It's very simple and if you do that, you'll be good as new. I'm very satisfied.

Dr. Bramlett was recommended to me by several friends as a brilliant surgeon with a direct style of communication. Since I was in constant pain and could no longer do daily activities or walk without limping, Dr. Bramlett scheduled my surgery within a week of my first office visit. I was sent home with a self-directed care program. Three months out, I am pleased to be walking again, pain-free, and without a limp. I highly recommend Dr. Bramlett to anyone considering constructive knee surgery.

At 56, I had been walking for 2 years with a severe limp due to arthritis in my knee. I also had a torn meniscus which was repaired by a doctor in my town. Did NOT help and still in pain. They said they would not do a replacement at my age, 56. I drove 3 1/2 hours to B'ham, AL on advice from a friend. I had the minimally invasive TKR, took 45 minutes, no horrible physical therapy, just 5 exercises to do at home and a recumbent bicycle regiment. I feel awesome!! Walking miles and miles!!!

On March 21,2018, Dr. Bramlett did my first total hip replacement on my right hip. On June 13, 2018, he performed the other hip replacement. Both surgeries went exceptionally well, and I would highly recommend Dr. Bramlett to those needing similar procedures. He is an excellent surgeon, and he does what he says he will do. On both occasions, my progress was on pro ahead of schedule(12 days) after surgery.
