Dr. Sweet was quick to assess the problem, efficiently explained it, answered my questions, and provided valuable options available for treating and managing. He was very thorough and pleasant to converse with. The staff were friendly and top notch. I was in and out in a flash. Previously seeing my husband through two extremely successful knee replacements, I wouldn’t trust mine to anyone else. He has a gift for knowing what works best and is an expert in his field.

Dr. Sweet looked at my history and scans and was able to accurately diagnose my pain. He scheduled a revision surgery and indeed found that my original TKR from another surgeon was loose. I’m so impressed with his knowledge, experience and thoroughness. He is the best.

Dr Richard Sweet did a fantastic job on replacing my knee. He was great at explaining everything both before I decided to have the surgery and after my surgery. My recovery has been going great, in part due to the expert job Dr. Sweet did with the surgery.

Absolutely no one any better. I had many of my own patients as well as friends who have been treated by Dr. Sweet and all have had exceptional outcomes. My left knee replacement is doing great and I got back to playing golf within 5 months.

I had my left knee replacement in late Dec. 2017. Dr Sweet was easy to talk to and I followed his recommendations. I had 3 weeks of PT at my home and the therapist (Rob from Kort) was also 5*. At the end of 3 weeks I was off of the prescription pain killers and only using over the counter Motrin for pain. After 8 weeks of PT I can walk miles and use stairs normally. 12/5/18 I am still taking Motrin but I have full use of my knee. My healing is not quite complete but I am glad I did this.

Dr. Sweet is the best in his field. I worked with him for 30 1/2 years on the ortho floors at Baptist. I recommend him to anyone seeking a joint replacement. Hope he doesn't retire before my other knee has to be done.

Everything about surgery went well. Only complaint was due to pain medication upon discharge. Discharge was on Friday afternoon and an alternative pain med was not available due to weekend. Knee healing really well. Hospital was amazing!

Dr. Sweet has a good bedside manner and listened to my complaints. After a through examination he told me my hip is worn out. I believe he is the best doctor to do my replacement.

I would recommend Dr Sweet to everyone. He is most kind, totally professional, and quite proficient at his trade. He is the most dedicated in his profession. Dr Sweet helped relieve my knee pain and my anxiety about another possible surgery. He has the most authentic way, and I am so happy to have Dr Sweet on my team of the best doctors in the United States.

Fast in processing info and coming up with plan. Dr. Sweet is clearly an expert and gets to the point! Highly recommend. Several friends who have worked with him in OR say they wouldn’t let anyone but him do their knee replacements! Hope I don’t need one but if I do...Dr Sweet! And what a great name!!

About 11 years ago I severely dislocated my right ankle...He was on call for the ER at Baptist E in Louisville. Then 7 years ago I had both knee replaced and they were excellent. They felt so natural that in my foolishness I went out in snow and severely damaged my knee. It would not heal. After deliberation, he did a third knee surgery ....installing rods in my 'shin' and femur and a hinge type knee.....I have been 'vertical ever sense. He is brilliant. Trustworthy. Compassionate.

Dr Sweet is an excellent physician and surgeon. He exhibits his knowledge and experience, along with his sincere concern for your well being, both before and after your surgery. His positive outlook for a patient’s recovery and physical therapy progress is encouraging. In addition to being a good “doctor”, Dr Sweet is also a good person. Confidence in him as my doctor, meant so much to my full recovery!

I felt totally in charge of deciding when I was ready for surgery. . He explained the procedure to me so I understood what to expect. I believe him to be a very skilled surgeon. His PA, Kate Hamilton has been so helpful to me in the years that I have struggled with knee pain, I was ready!

I would not have knee surgery with anyone else! Professional, experienced and personable ... And I have had nothing but a great experience throughout the entire process. I am delighted with the results of my surgery and recovery.

Seen by Dr Sweet many months. Had a left TKR in 2009 (age 55), and a right TKR in 2011 (age 57). Dr. Sweet did not "push" the surgery--we tried everything else before the decision. Dr Sweet was fantastic throughout the whole process. Very knowledgeable, very professional, and a very nice, caring, and understanding man. I've moved to Florida, and due to genetics, am seeing one, or two, hip replacements possibly, down the road. I will do everything I can to have them done by Dr. Sweet.

Dr. Sweet is the best! He did 2 total knee replacements, 4 weeks apart in 2016. My recovery was fairly easy, his office was very responsive when I had trouble with pain medications. I could do everything I wanted in less than 6 months after the 2nd surgery. Then, I broke my hip, Dr. Sweet thoroughly explained my options & I chose a hip replacement, now 3 weeks after surgery, recovery is progressing very well. Absolutely happy with Dr. Sweet, his explanations, follow up, & his surgical skills.
