in Georgetown, KY |
I am thrilled with the results of my total hip replacement ! Dr. K did a beautiful job, and my recovery has been extremely smooth. I had some pre-existing conditions that complicated the surgery, and it had to be postponed once, but Dr. K went out of his way to work me back into his schedule. I am so grateful for his knowledge and skill and kindness!
Thank you for reaching out. I am pleased to hear from you about your positive experience. We work hard to maintain our commitment to excellent patient care and we appreciate your confidence and trust in Lexington Clinic. -Dr. Tharun Karthikeyan
in Winchester, KY |
I felt Dr. K. was concerned about me from the first time I met him; he was glad that I preferred a conservative approach to my arthritic knees, and was supportive of the strength training I was doing, with a local trainer. When eventually my left knee left us with no options, I had seen him enough times to trust he was the right doctor for the TKR. He insisted I be faithful to my post-op PT, at home and outpatient, and I credit his emphasis on that with my keeping PT a priority. He's the best

He was kind and compassionate but when all was said and done... my TKA was done with mistakes made.
