Dr King did both my knees 4 weeks apart. I came home the same day, with very little pain. I went from not being able to walk from room to room without horrible pain. My knees were very arthritic bone on bone, they were both completely worn out. I am now walking 3 miles a day NO PAIN. I'm a new person thanks to Dr King. I would definitely recommend Dr King he's the best.

Great guy. He has operated on me twice one scope and one knee replacement. Can't say enough good things about this doctor.

Dr. King installed a new knee 11 years ago & new hip 3 weeks ago & I am doing fantastic - Dr. King is amazing, kind and so very knowledgeable - I would never go to anyone else. His entire office is top notch just like the man they work with.

My experience with Dr King was horrible. I had day surgery for a total knee replacement because I was having a hard time with stairs. Now 5 months later, I cry daily because of the pain I am in. I have been left with my leg .5 longer and the thoughts are it is misaligned. I also now have a herniated disk in my back that I did not have before. Dr King said as far as he was concerned the surgery was a success and put me in the care of a physiatrist. Horrible bed side manner and just doesnt car
