Dr. Karkare was kind enough to take on an infected knee replacement which was very difficult. He was personally recommended by a family friend and I am so grateful they chose him. He was open and honest about what was going to take place. He was extremely successful in treating my infected knee replacement and a reconstruction that showed wonderful success from the very beginning. After only one month post op, my recovery could not be going any better. Dr. Karkare is a world class surgeon in my opinion and I feel very fortunate to have had him on my side. He is the BEST!

Thank you Dr.Karkare for giving me my life back. This doctors experience and knowledge of his work can be seen in my new replacement knee. For the first time in many years (thirteen)to be exact I'm able to walk pain free. Dr.Karkare the only doctor that after seen three other orthopedic surgeons was sure he could help me. The other said I was to much of a risk since I was overweight. Thank God for this wonderful man and his beautiful secretary Donna what a sweetheart so helpful.

I would like to add onto this review over a month later.... still in Dr. Karkare's care and now almost pain free in my knee joint. He recommended the HYALGAN shots, and thanks to the tenacity of his staff with my insurance company, they were approved and i am now into my second shot out of five.... and yes already feeling great relief. I want to point out that Dr. Karkare was very firm in advising me that everybody reacts differently to this procedure and it may not be a quick fix but it will

Dr Karkare takes the time to know his patients personally, which is refreshing & rare in medical practices these days. He explains everything my 16 year old daughter needs to know in regards to her ACL injury and never makes us feel rushed. He is truly a fine man & I would highly recommend him to everyone I know.

Dr Karkure was the doctor on call when I went to the emergency room, my femur was broken in half ! He performed the surgery but it was after the surgery that I learned what a caring and concerned physician he is. Each an every problem or concern was met with compassion as well as expertise. Against all odds I am able to walk without assistance or use of any device!!! I recommend Dr Karkure to all the people I know, and when my granddaughter needed an orthopedist he was the only choice!
