What our patients are saying

Great experience with Dr. K and his team. Surgery went very well and after a few days of “discomfort” I started rehab right away, which I think was key for a fast recovery. Five months after the operation I am better in terms of muscle tone and knee bending and with absolutely ZERO pain. I SHOULD HAVE DONE IT YEARS AGO!!!!. Dr. K is a miracle doctor!

Luis de la Plaza

At age 71, Dr.K has helped me to get to the ‘top’ for several years now. With regular treatment, I was able to ride my bike to the top of Mt. Ventoux, a climb on the Tour de France, in 2015. Just last winter, I was able to ski 225 miles!

Everyone needs their own kind of attention based on their issues and you get that from Dr. K. I am looking forward to an 8 week long skiing trip. None of this would be possible without him!

Haven P.

Dr.K is an excellent surgeon, who really cares about the well-being of and the relationship with all of his patients. I would not have been able to be the athlete I am without him!

Samantha M. (Collegiate Athlete)

Dr. K has been my orthopedist for well over a decade. He has gone way beyond the call of duty in overseeing the treatment of my arthritic knees. Dr. K has been responsive to my needs, has enabled me to continue teaching tennis through this time, and he has worked with me to maintain the quality of life that is critical. I recommend him whole-heartedly. It’s rare to find a physician these days who takes the time to provide this type of quality care.
