What People Say About Dr. Kipling Sharpe, MD

On February 12, 2019, Dr. Sharpe removed my right bi-polar hip prosthesis (implanted by another surgeon) from a traumatic fall I suffered thirteen years ago. Dr. Sharpe then replaced it with a total new hip with his preferred choice of liner and cup for my socket. At age 77, I was scared to death to go through another hip replacement, but I had no choice because of the pain from the deteriorating cartilage in the socket from that first surgery. Dr. Sharpe was empathetic, comforting, and compas

I had a excellent experience with Dr. Sharpe. He squeezed me in on very short notice. I was discharged just over 24 hours later and have had no complications. Dr. Sharpe’s approach enabled me to heal relatively quickly and return to work within 6 weeks. I’m quite confident in Dr. Sharpe’s abilities and would recommend his total hip replacement to others.

I can walk because of Dr. Sharpe. in 2015 I had fallen and broke my hip in 3 places a year later I was still in pain and unable to walk without a walker or cane. My first visit with Dr Sharpe he diagnosed that my hip had not healed. I was scheduled for a hip replacement. within 4 weeks my pain was gone and I could walk.My leg had been 3/4 in. shorter and he corrected that..Not only is he a good doctor he is a great person.I an so thankful I found him.

I was referred by my PCP due to pain in my right hip which made it difficult to walk. Entire office was pleasant and efficient. Had an x-ray of my right hip and was examined by Dr Sharp. He has a very nice 'bedside manner' and explained the results of my x-ray and made a drawing to facilitate explaining of my situation. Referred me to physical therapy. I would definitely recommend this physician.

Dr. Sharpe performed a total knee replacement 6 weeks ago, and the outcome is better than I could have anticipated. Dr. Sharpe and his team instilled confidence, so I knew I was getting the best care through the entire process. The in-house physical therapy facilities was an added bonus to my healing. I highly recommend Dr. Sharpe. He is my hero.
