I recently had a total knee replacement by Dr. Hamby. He was an excellent surgeon and gave me back a quality of life that I haven't had for years. He and his team were true professionals and provided the highest level of care that was possible. I would highly recommend him!!!

Honesty, trust, professional care is key to a successful team effort for staff and patient. Impressive care and the vision to give such rewarding health care to get me back on my feet was very crucial with every step taken. The quality of care on every level from pre op to post op to therapy has been the most quality care to date. I never questioned anything because the nurses, doctor and therapist kept me informed and gave me great advise to enhance my healing. I got my life back! Thank you!

I had a total knee replacement on May 10th 2016. Dr Hamby treated me for about 7 years prior to surgery. I displayed all the symptoms to be a candidate for replacement prior to surgery by about 2 years. I asked Dr. Hamby "when should I have it done? He said you will know. I did. He listens and he explains things where I understood. My bow legg is gone! I got my life back. I will have have him do other knee when it is time. I would not have anyone else do it. He is friendly, capable & thorough.??

Dr Hamby changed my life!!! He did both my knee replacements! I had just lost my wife and my body was worn out! I could barely walk! He has given me a new lease on life! Thank you Dr Hamby Ron Wade

My name is Prentice, in mid Feb 2017 I blew out my left knee. My meniscus was tore up really bad. My initial evaluation was mid Feb 2017, during that visit, Dr. Hamby's physician's assistant, Kati was her name I believe, and Nurse Martha immediately put me at ease. Very professional and considerate. My surgery was 8 Mar. Dr. Hamby and his team performed perfectly. I was discharged after only 5 weeks. My therapists, in rehab were also outstanding. I highly recommend Dr. Hamby his team and TSO.

Several in my family have seen Dr Hamby for ortho needs and he has always been very thorough And caring with us. He has always followed-up after our visits to make sure we are doing well with our treatment. AND his clinical staff is OUTSTANDING too. I will most definitely recommend Dr Hamby to friends and family for their ortho needs.

Dr. Hamby is an awesome surgeon. I had a horrific leg injury, and broke my leg in 5 places. He said that it was the worst that he had seen in years. I needed 2 surgeries to fix my leg because of how my body was healing, and now I am back to working construction and climbing ladders every day. I am so thankful that I met him, and that he was the surgeon on my case. He was very attentive, caring, and reassuring thru my healing process. Nursing staff in his office was just as awesome.

Dr. Hamby and his team are amazing. I was scared out of my mind having to get a hip replacement and Dr. Hamby and his team made what could have been an awful experience and turned it into a good experience. Dr. Hamby and is team are very knowledgeable and are eager to make sure a patient understands everything that is going on...

Most rude and unfeeling doctor I have ever met. I just got back from Indianapolis having surgery. I was in so much pain and he told me that there was no reason for me b to be hurting like I was. Even after doing an MRI he didn't have the decency to call me to tell me he was wrong. I would recommend Methodist sports medicine and will never walk through tri state orthopedics doors again...no bedside manner, rude, unfeeling.

Dr. Timothy Hamby is a wonderful caring Dr. He answered all my questions and then some. I had to have my ACL done and before the procedure he explained everything to me that he would be doing. I did not feel rushed or anything he stayed in there with me as long as I needed him too. I would highly recommend him to anyone he make you feel very comfortable. He is very polite and pashionate about his work. Thank you Dr. Hamby for you extrodenary work.
