Patient Comments (4)
St Louis, MO |
Dr. K scoped both of my knees about 7 years apart. I love that he has done so many of these procedures—the confidence and proficiency are reassuring. First knee was better outcome than second but I’m getting older. One area of improvement would be spending more post-op time with patient to ensure we understand what you did, what we should do and how to best approach recovery. He provides the information to person who brings you to the procedure, but is gone to his next patient by wake-up.

He refused to acknowledge my botched surgery resulting in second surgery 9 months later leaving me with neuropathy. First surgery left me bruised from top of my hip, down my outer thigh plus a bruise on my inner thigh from top to bottom. He lied in my chart downplaying my complaints and concerns. Xrays show stem was put in slanted. 6 years later I still walk with a cane. Just had other hip replaced (by different surgeon) (no bruises) recovery is slow as I don't have a strong hip for support.

Did a great job on my knee replacement. It hurt like hell, but 6 weeks later it was great!!!!!!!

Dr. Kriegshauser is an excellent surgeon who took the time to explain my upcoming surgery. He is very dedicated to treating complex issues and I would highly recommend him for hip replacement and reconstruction surgery. He is a perfectionist - just what every patient wants in a surgeon!
