What People Say About Dr. Timothy Kinkead, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

He replaced both knees 2+ years ago and both are worse now than pre-replacement. In one knee my patella fractured and other surgeons don't want to deal with the disaster that's left. The other knee, (what used to be my "good knee") seems to have the sharp edge of what other surgeons have suggested may be the wrong size prosthetic which is literally tearing my knee apart from the inside. With the usual large ego of a surgeon, he has suggested that it is a nerve issue or "maybe in my head". If I could only let him experience my daily pain(in my head), he'd better understand how he has altered my life for the worse. Advice: Drive as fast as you can to Boston!

Dr. Kinkead did bilateral knee replacement for me in 2012 and he was the best! Knees still working. Everyone connected with the process was wonderful. I have recommended him many times over.

Dr. Kinkead has been wonderful in treating both myself and my husband. He replaced a knee for me and a hip for my husband. He also did surgery on each of our rotatator cuff injuries. Currently, I am being treated for bone spurs in my shoulder and preparing to replace my other knee by Dr. Kinkead. Obviously, we both place tremendous faith and total trust in Dr. Kinkead! We have been his patients for seven years and will continue to have him for our orthopedic needs.

Went to see him today for the first time. Got right in with minimal waiting. He was awesome. Spent time with me and answered my questions. Honest and straightforward. Would definitely recommend him to anyone with knee problems.

Dr. Kinkead performed arthroscopic surgery on my knee recently, after previously receiving a corticosteroid injection to reduce inflammation. He has a conservative approach when deciding which procedures and or therapies should be done before resorting to surgery. He spends the necessary time explaining one's condition as well as what he feels needs to be done. He's up to date in performing the latest surgical procedures. I'm sure to return in the future if the need arises.

Dr. Kincaid performed a total knee replacement on my elderly father. The initial surgery went well However, 1 month later during PT he tore the tendons off his knee cap and had to have another surgical repair. The level of care since has been dismissive, perfunctory and downright rude. Yesterday he was admitted to hospital for knee infection -when our family expressed dissatisfaction he yelled at us, told us to "Go on line and look at my approval ratings, " and left - I would NEVER recommend him

The best. Couldn't be more pleased. Very little pain post knee replacement surgery. My 4th joint replacement, and the best, and least painful. What a team! Thanks to all.
