I've been going to Dr Kane for many years. He's kind, compassionate and he listens. I have never had an issue with any surgery he has performed.

Always direct & willing to answer questions. There was a scheduling mixup as to which RVO office I was to come to, but would chock that up to a clerical error.

Appointments are on time, however, I don't feel that Dr. Kane is looking at my mother as a patient, but a number. My mother does have other health concerns that make surgery high risk; however, without a hip replacement, she has no quality of life whatsoever. Every appointment, Dr. Kane comes up with another reason he won't do surgery. I feel that he is more concerned with having a black mark on his record than he is about my mother's quality of life. We are getting another doctor.

Outstanding surgeon with a great staff. Extreme hip arthritis that was very painful, came out of surgery and walked that evening without pain. Three months later and back to most of my daily routine.

My hip replacement could not have gone better or been easier. From the initial appointment to the education session to the surgery and follow up appointments, Dr. Kane and his staff were patient, caring and concerned. I don't know how it could have been better!

Doctor Kane and his office are very professional, well-organized and efficient. I had a problem with a 17 year old artificial hip that was hard to pin point the cause (problem did not show on an MRI or X-ray) Dr. Kane went through the steps to determine what the problem may be and had me scheduled for surgery/ The pre-surgery class was excellent as was the support from Dr. Kane's office. My experience at Mercy/Saint Mary hospital was one of the best I've had in the 5 surgeries I had.

I received excellent care from Dr. Kane for a knee injury. He correctly diagnosed my injury before I had an MRI. My surgery went well and I have just completed my PT. I found Dr. Kane to be a very caring and highly competent physician.

When finding myself in need of a total knee replacement, my PCP didn't hesitate with a referral to Kevin Kane MD. 'That's who I would use', he told me. Very satisfied with my care pre and post replacement. Dr. Kane saw me through a rough patch, engaging other professionals to aid in pain management and discharge when it was appropriate for me. He consistently spends the time you require in consultation and at the bedside. Carol La Mange

I found Dr. Kane to be personable, thorough in explanations to my questions or concerns, efficient, and gifted in his skills. My follow-up visits were encouraging and my incision healed marvelously. He performed arthroscopic surgery on my knee several years ago, replaced my left knee joint this time around and is scheduled to replace my right knee joint in two months. I appreciated his conservative approach to surgery, treating me with pain meds two years until surgery was necessary.
