Dr. Kuratnick Sandoe is absolutely amazing. I needed a hindfoot nail fusion and asked my PCP for a second opinion after seeing one of the generalists at the Orthopedic Sports Institute. During my visit with Dr. Sandoe, the explanation of what I needed to have done was excellent. Also, Dr. Sandoe's "technique" (not sure the right word?) gained full fusion between my calcaneus and surrounding bones. To say this was life changing is an understatement. BEST SURGEON EVER!

Had major foot reconstruction in October 2016, plus a toe amputation on the other foot - this after experiencing major pain for many years. Dr. Kuratnick-Sandoe has the hands of an angel - I was painless right after the surgery!! She is straight forward, explained everything in detail, was kind and very knowledgeable. Thanks to Dr. Kuratnick-Sandoe I have my life back1

I would not recommend Dr. Kuratnick to anyone that prefers compassion or bedside manner during their appointments. I have been dealing with a painful post-surgical issue for two years and I've seen many specialists. She told me there is nothing she can do and there's nothing anyone can do. As I started to cry out of frustration and defeat, she said, "do you want me to wave a magic wand to make it better?" I was stunned. It was a 4 minute exam that completely shattered all hope for me. Thanks.

Dr. Kuratnick helped me avoid surgery with conservative treatment. Another local provider at OSI wanted me to jump directly into surgery. I highly recommend.

Dr. Kuratnick is one of the best healthcare providers I have ever encountered. She is no-nonsense surgeon and I appreciate her explaining to me what she would do "if I was her mother." Thanks to her, I'm able to walk -- without crying at the end of the day.

Dr. Kuratnick is a blessing. I had my pain in my ankle for years from arthritis and was referred to Dr. Kuratnick by several friends. I had my ankle replaced and now walk with a normal stride. Life changing surgery -- life chasing Dr.

I had surgery by Dr.kuratnick The worst experience of my life!the day after my reconstructive foot surgery she informed me she was leaving the country and thatI would probably need another surgery.she should have done a triple orthodessis the first time.The care I got from her and the clinic was the most awful care one could get.Needless to say I now have to go through a major surgery again.If I can save anyonefrom the horrific care I received then I did the right thing by letting others no.
