Dr. Kent Lowry replaced my husband's left knee in 2017 and his left hip in 2018. Both were in total arthritis break down..hardly anything left of either joint. Dr Lowry replaced them and did an excellant to perfect surgery on both joints. We couldn't be happier with his new abilities and his pain free life. He had suffered for years. Dr Lowry was our hero and so easy to work with, we felt so well taken care of and had the best surgeon and staff. Thank you Dr. Lowry !

Dr. Lowry was the perfect choice. At 76 surgery wasn't my first choice. Dr, Lowry gave me confidence and reassurance that surgery was a good solution. He was definitely right.

Dr. Lowry did an excellent job fixing my broken foot. The option was left up to me to have the surgery or not and I chose to have the surgery so that I could get back to work sooner. Dr. Lowry did not push something that I did not want. I will definitely recommend Dr. Lowry and his amazing staff to anyone needing orthopedic work. The staff at Northland Orthopedics is just a pleasure to be around also. Thank you for all that you did for me Dr. Lowry and your team.

Dr. Lowry performed hip surgery on me in March of 2016. His attention to detail enabled me to resume my normal daily life within a matter of weeks. I am extremely pleased with his skill as a surgeon. He and his staff made me feel very comfortable and were very helpful in explaining what would happen before, during and after the surgery. THANK YOU to Dr. Lowry, Jen, Mike and all the nurses and staff who assisted in eliminating my pain and allowing me to move freely again.

Dr. Lowry has done 3 of my surgeries, I would not want another Dr as I have total trust in Dr. Lowry. He has always given the time I need for any concerns, never have I felt like he was in a rush. His staff is as amazing as he is. As with Dr. Lowry they are compansionate and always caring and truly concerned with your health and recovery.

It has been 5 years since Dr. Lowry replaced my hip and the results have been fantastic. We have met for numerous regularly scheduled follow up appointments and he has always been attentive to my total medical condition. Additionally he has consulted with me regarding knee and shoulder problems and has helped me alleviate much of this discomfort without the need for surgery so far. Always on time and willing to discuss all aspects of my healthcare.

Dr. Lowry and his team, at the clinic and St. Mary's hospital were great. 2 years out from right knee replacement and 1 year out from left knee replacement I have very good flexibility and strength in both knees. Everyone was very courteous and prompt. I would highly recommend Dr. Lowry and his staff for knee replacement.

I can't begin to tell you how pleased I am with Dr.Lowery and his entire staff. Very professional yet kind and compassionate. There is no wait time at Northland Orthopedic, which I think is amazing. The hospital staff and his group of people are truly a joy to be associated with, if you can find joy in surgery!!!!
