I had my right knee replaced 10/18/18 and Dr. Kennon got me back to work and able to do things that I couldn't do before. He took time to explain everything to me in great detail and answered my 100 questions. He has a great bedside manner and really cares about his patients. I would recommend him to anyone who wants the job done right and by a doctor who truly cares.

this doctor is not only a brilliant surgeon, but the most compassionate and caring physician I've ever encountered. I have seen him for a hip replacement and a knee replacement. The level of care was amazing from a personal call the night prior to surgery to the follow up. A gentleman AND a scholar - that's what you get in Dr. Kennon.

Dr Kennon replaced my right hip on 1/3/19. I was getting progressively worse over almost a 2 year period to the point I could barely walk with my cane. Dr Kennon, his assistants and office staff were incredibly helpful ,informative and knowledgeable. Dr Kennon was quick to answer my calls. 8 weeks and I could not be any happier with my experience and results. I heard many nurses ,physical therapists and my primary physician say Dr Kennon is one of the best. He truly is one of the very best.

Not your typical Surgeon, Dr. Kennon and his staff were thorough from the consultation through my Wife's current post surgical follow ups. You won't find a careful, more skilled surgeon anywhere.

He couldn’t have been better in any way. Carefully explained every detail of my full knee replacement surgery, kind, open to questions, wrote a book about the surgery which he gave to me in advance. The surgery itself went beautifully, was not long and all the ancillary staff on his team were experienced and caring. Following surgery he carefully explained in person everything that happened and outlined the next treatment strategies which unfolded according to schedule.

Dr. Kennon has the hands of an angel. Many doctors turned me away, but Dr. Kennon showed compassion and got me a surgery date within two weeks.

Anyone considering hip or knee surgery should read Dr Kennon's book "Hip And Knee Surgery: A patients Guide" it clearly informs you all you need to know in layman's terms. Dr Kennon is not only a very talented orthopedic surgeon, but also has a degree in engineering. This was crucial in my case as one of the 2 hips he replaced this summer involved removing & working around screws & metal plates from a femur fractured 40 years earlier. Dr Kennon & his team succeeded wonderfully. I'm very happy!

Dr. Kennon has performed a total hip replacement and a total knee replacement on me, in the past year. Not only do I have complete confidence in his surgical skills, I have found his "bedside manner" to be exemplary. He takes the time to listen and to answer all questions, not only in the office but in the pre-op and post-op rooms. Based on my high enthusiasm and the success I have had following both operations, several of my friends have made appointments to see him.
