I had severe OA of my knee and had two years of cortisone injections prior to having a total knee replacement at St.Thomas West. Dr. Karpos was adamant about my weight and was a cheerleader til I lost enough weight to have the surgery. His total commitment and care for optimal patient outcomes is...more

I am so impressed with Dr. Karpos and the care he has given my mother. The staff at the surgical center really seem to respect and admire him a lot as well. I can't say enough good things about him and the staff at the surgical center. Very very impressed. Highly recommend Dr. Karpos.
