    in Overland Park, KS |
    Dr. Cook has performed three total joint replacements for me (both knees and a hip). Simply put, I trust him completely. Two years after my left knee replacement, it became infected and he explained thoroughly what needed to be done to attempt not to have to do another full replacement. He performed an "I and D" surgery in June 2016 and it is healing even better than I hoped.
    in Shawnee, KS |
    I had a hip done, and it was clear that Dr. Cook had done many of these successfully. Everything was explained in detail and in a manner easily understood. His support staff was beyond exemplary.

    He takes the time to explain what he is going to do and what could go wrong. Very personable and easy to talk to.

    DR COOK HAS TO BE ONE OF THE BEST SURGEONS IN THE U.S. IN 2013 DR COOK REPLACED BOTH HIPS AND A KNEE IN 7 MONTHS. I SPENT MANY HOURS WITH HIS INCREDIBLE STAFF AND NOW MY SISTER WHO WAS IN HORRIBLE SHAPE WITH LEG BONE PULLING OUT OF HIP SOCKET IN TREMENDOUS PAIN HAS HAD ONE HIP REPLACED THIS YEAR AND WILL HAVE SECOND HIP DONE IN APRIL. NO OTHER SURGEON IN KC COULD HAVE ATTEMPTED THESE SURGERIES BECAUSE OF SEVERE LOSS OF BONE DENSITY. HE IS THE BEST
