    Dr Karpos helped me from day one! I was having severe groin pain and he told me the only thing that would fix me was a total hip replacement and I was sceptical but was so much in pain I decided to have it done. IFrom the moment I woke after the surgery I never experienced groin pain again! It has been a year since my surgery and What a year it has been! Thank you Dr. Karpos for giving me my quality of life back! You are truly my Knight in Shining Armor!

    I'm a 63 year old over weight male who tried everything from steroid shots to J&J orthvisc shots and nothing worked. My life was miserable and I walked like a crippled chimpanzee. Three different friend, 2 of which are prominent surgeons, all told me to see Dr. Karpos. In 5 minutes he said based on my X-Ray an MRI was a waste of time. He then performed a total knee replacement on both knees. It was a great experience and totally changed my life. Phil is a great guy who expects you to work hard.

    Dr Karpos is a very kind Dr. My knee replacement Dr Stein retired from TOA and I went to 3 doctors and was not satisfied with their services until I found Dr Karpos who is helping me with post knee surgery issues. He is a GEM of a Dr. Very sharp,nice and informative. A+++++ Dr. Bravo

    Anyone who needs knee replacement surgery needs to come to see Dr. Karpos. Excellent Doctor. Fine man - with a kind heart and a great bedside manner. He works as hard for you as he expects that you work for him after the surgery. There is no one else I would have trusted my surgery to in the state of Tennessee. God Fearing and Christian. This Doctor is the best choice.
