Dr. Kumar was fantastic from start to finish! He is an amazing doctor and person. My son shattered his collarbone into 5 pieces and had to have surgery. Dr. Kumar put a plate and several screws in to repair his collarbone. He is truly genuine with his concern and compassion. He took the time to make sure that my son understood everything throughout the whole process. The entire staff at Brandon Ortho are friendly, caring, helpful and knowledgeable. Not only do we already recommend Dr. Kumar but we would trust our entire family with his care. First class doctor and staff.

I cannot recommend Dr. Kumar and the staff at Brandon Orthopedics enough. Dr Kumar did a fantastic job repairing my torn rotator cuff, torn labrum, and bicep tenodesis. My physical therapists after surgery all agreed that Dr. Kumar was one of the best and my recovery/rehab was finished weeks ahead of schedule. If you are searching for an orthopedic surgeon you can't go wrong with Dr. Kumar and his awesome staff. I would highly recommend him to friends, family, and anyone who asked.

Dr. Kumar is great, along with all his staff in every capacity. I had a FullTore Rotator Cuff with complications, he told me on my first visit with him that the test they did and the pictures they took, did not give them all the information he needed and he would have to put a camera in to explore all the damage on the day of my surgery, then he would be able to decide all the necessary surgery and repairs, he also said it was going to be extremely painful, probably the worst pain I will ever experience and it will be a long recovery with lots of therapy needed, probably at least 6 months worth and I probably won't get back to normal use for possibly 2 years. Well all that has turned out to be true, I had the surgery November 1st, 2018, the normal surgery for a Tore Rotator Cuff is around two hours, mine took three and a half hours, the pain was unbelievable for the first two weeks, then it continued but not as extreme, now 6months later I have finished therapy and discharged by Dr K

I was referred to Dr Kumar by my GP. I had torn my bicep and tendon from the bone due to heavy lifting. Dr Kumar was very thorough in explaining all the options and details. He did a fantastic job of reconnecting the muscle and tendon and my arm is back to normal. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is in need of a good surgeon.

After just moving to Sun City Center I had a bad fall. Not knowing any docrors in the area the hospital had Dr Kumar called. He was wonderful explaining my injuries and how he was going to repair them. I was afraid that I would not walk again but it's been 6 months and I'm walking and even going to the Gym . Thank you Dr Kumar. The office staff was also very careing (Stephanie).

I first started treatment with Dr.Kumar 6 months ago after a fall that broke my shoulder. I found Dr.Kumar to be extremely patient and caring. He clearly explained what was happening as I healed and he assured me that the feelings I was having in my arm were part of the healing process. I never felt rushed and he really listened when I spoke of my concerns, he is very easy to speak to. I felt very comfortable with Dr.Kumar and the office staff. I would highly recommend Dr.Kumar.

Dr.kumar did knee surgery on my son who hurt his knee playing basketball. Took the time to explain all the possible options. He fixed my sons meniscus when all the other doctors wanted to cut it out. He also fixed his ACL, and did such a good job he is way ahead of his rehab schedule. He only made a few tiny incisions. Great doctor highly recommend!!!
