My wife was involved in an accident which resulted in her leg being badly broken, not too dissimilar to the unfortunate injury suffered by Tiger Woods. Since Covid was in full force, I couldn't even go into the hospital let alone help select a surgeon. My wife and I feel very fortunate that Dr. Kaska was assigned to perform the trauma surgery. By all indications he did an exceptional job and she is recovering very well. My wife felt comfortable from their first meeting and Dr. Kaska was exceptional during all of our subsequent visits. In addition, Dr. Kaska's staff was excellent in providing clear instructions and also helped out a lot with the insurance provider. I hope you don't need his help, but if you do we highly recommend Dr. Kaska.

Did bother to communicate with my until a full 24 hrs after emergency surgery. Was VERY cocky and said he was too busy putting people back together to speak with us. Finally told us what was going on, and that I'd be out of work for next couple month. Didn't bother to conduct 2nd needed surgery to contain infection which is considered standard. Was out of work for 8 months and almost ended up with bone infection because of this Dr. DO NOT USE HIM!!!

Dr. Kaska is an excellent orthopedic surgeon, always trying new ideas and calling whenever he has an update. He works hard, and has always been available to answer questions. My husband and I are extremely impressed with his level of care and his talent!
