Dr. Kassman Gave Me My Life Back!
I'm from Ontario, Canada and went to Phoenix for a total right hip replacement. My left hip was replaced here in Ontario in 2011. I've never experienced the level of care and thoroughness as I had with Dr. Kassman and the entire team. I had been in pain for four years and two years on a waiting list for surgery with no end date in sight. Life was bleak since I had lost all mobility and the not knowing how much longer I would have to wait. I'm so glad I found Timely Medical and chose to go to Phoenix. My recovery has been nothing short of amazing. I was able to go back to work just four weeks after surgery. At six weeks, I'm doing stair steps with each foot and can bring my right foot up to my left knee to put on my shoes. Time to get my bicycle back out. I'm getting my natural energy back with not being in pain or on any pain medication. Thank you seems inadequate to express my gratitude. I would highly recommend Dr. Kassman.

Dr Kassman Knows His Stuff!
Dr Kassman performed a total right hip replacement. I am in recovery but can walk and sit without the pain j had prior to surgery. I look forward to my total recovery and pain free! Dr Kassman tells it like it and performs without wasting anyone’s time.

Dr. Kassman was very professional while at the same time he took the time to find out about my personal life and my hopes moving forward post surgery. He was very thorough in his consults with me and my wife explaining the procedure and any risks that could be possible. Dr. Kassman's staff were very accommodating, from the in clinic people, to his affiliated concierge service, and physiotherapist. The physiotherapist is a must to get you moving and doing all the right things. The concierge took a lot of the stress of getting to and from appointments and surgery out of the picture. Being from Canada , Timely Medical, helped to facilitate my surgery and all pre- surgery appointments with Dr. Kassman's office. I have been home for six weeks and I am feeling no pain and I am back to an active happy life. Amazing.

Right hip replacement
From the moment I got in contact withDr Kassman through Timely Medical in Canada, he has been very attentive, fast responding and he explained exactly what would need to happen. Pre-op meeting was first time we met and he was very pleasant, soft spoken and clear. Day of surgery he had great bedside manners. After surgery he came by to see me again and told me all went fine. 7 a.m. surgery and at 12:30 p.m. I walked out of the clinic. On day 4 I had a lot of wound pain and the physio was not sure why. He sent a pic to Dr Kassman and he was gone for the weekend, but he called me saying he had to come to the hotel anyways to have a pre-op with a patient and he would come by to check it out. He was at the hotel at 8:30 p.m. and confirmed it was all ok. Post-op meeting he showed me my x-rays and explained what to expect in coming weeks. I have had email contact since and he always responds fast. This was the best decision I have ever made and worth every single penny!!

Very happy with my total knee replacement surgery
12 days into my recovery from my total knee replacement by Dr. Kassman. Dr. Kassman is very pleased with my progress. In my opinion he did an excellent job with my surgery. In just 12 days I am only needing a cane to walk with only minor swelling and pain. He is also very attentive to all my post op rehab. He has a very nice bedside manner and takes all the time needed to answer all my questions and concerns. I'm so glad I chose Dr. Kassman and OrthoArizona for my knee surgery.

Dr. Kassman did a fantastic job on my knee replacement surgery!!! I didn’t experience any bad symptoms of a painful surgery at all!!! I was up walking around the same day and within 2 weeks I was walking without any help. Physical therapy has been so helpful.

Dr. Kassman performed a left hip replacement for me on July 9, 2021. I made the trip from Canada due to our extreme delays in having such surgery performed where I live. It was one of the best decisions of my life. I had been experiencing severe pain for over a year, with no end in sight as I would be waiting 1 1/2 to 2 years more for surgery in Canada. I can say that I am able to do all my activities without pain. I am not perfect, but I would say at 3 months I am at 85%. I recently went on a 16 km hike in the mountains with a 2000 foot elevation climb. No pain. I am back on my bicycle, and going to the gym. My flexibility is improving daily. I can't thank Dr. Kassman enough.

Dr. Kassman and his team were excellent - from my first contact via phone to follow ups five months after my knee surgery. I used to be limited in my activities due to the pain in my knee. Now, I don't even think about it anymore. I can do all activities - walking my dogs up to 13 miles, surfing, curling, snowboarding, etc. I have my full mobility back due to Dr. Kassman.

I came to Dr. Kassman for a full knee replacement and I have been very impressed with the entire operation from start to finish. Every interaction from schedulers, nurses, porters and greeters at the hospital has been professional and courteous. Dr. Kassman takes time to ensure you as to what the process will be, how things are going to unfold and what your part, as the patient, will be. You are in excellent hands with Dr. Kassman and his team!

I am a Canadian and when my medical information was sent to Dr Kassman he emailed me within 24 hours to set up a telephone consultation. The telephone consultation was excellent and lasted over 45 minutes. Dr Kassman gave me all the information I needed regarding the surgery and answered all my questions. It was approximately 6 weeks from consultation to surgery. The HonorHealth Deer Valley hospital was truly excellent - the nursing staff/ occupational therapists/ physiotherapists met all my needs. I was discharged home with a walker and within 2 days Dillon Harris, Physiotherapist, visited to teach and supervise exercises. He then visited 2 days later to transition me to a cane. My follow-up visit with Dr Kassman was excellent also. Overall, the experience with Dr Kassman was second to none and I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this doctor and his staff.
