Dr. K and his staff are unparalleled in their knowledge, treatment, expertise and care given to their patients. I had two total hip replacements in 2015 and have recovered completely and totally and every bit of the credit for my amazing recovery and progress goes to these remarkable people who are thorough, kind and caring about their patients, their patients' satisfaction, and full and uncomplicated recovery. I am committed to them for life.

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!

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.
