Due to a devastating accident, my knees were "destroyed" and required immediate surgery. (physicians at the nearest hospital) I continued to have great pain in both my knees and physical therapy was not sufficient. I was referred to Dr. Kollias and I am ever grateful. Dr. Kollias operated on both my knees-first my left than later my right. My knees feel amazing - better than I ever hoped. I highly recommend Dr. Kollias to anyone who may need surgery in his specialty.

Dr. Kollias is very personable and caring. I'm thrilled with the results of my shoulder surgery which were better than I'd hoped for. Even though the last thing I wanted was surgery, Dr. Kollias and his team made the entire experience easy and nearly pain-free. I'd see him again for any ortho problems in the future.

This is an orthopedic surgeon who is very thorough, knowledgeable & social. His exam was thorough, did diagnostic testing and he explained my diagnosis: complete rotator cuff tear. He explained my surgery and did a great job! I have complete use of my arm now. He ordered PT after surgery & was very particular on types of exercises. I followed it to a "t". I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation. Great guy!!

I can happily and HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kollias, his staff and Ortho Indy in general. Every person I came in contact with was polite, considerate and helpful. I received excellent care and have now fully recovered. Thank you Dr. Kollias for your expertise and your care!
Thank you for your review, Terry.

Dr. Kollias operated on my knee and shoulder. Both were pretty messed up from general wear and tear to the point that they were seriously inhibiting not only my sports activities, but also my sleep. In both cases I have been more than pleased with the results as well as Dr. Kollias' post surgery care and advice. I am back to full nights sleep and full activity levels without pain in less time than Dr. Kollias originally estimated.
If you want an accurate diagnosis, go elsewhere.
