Patient Testimonials

Thanks to my care at KOC, I can walk without pain in my left leg! I had a herniated disc with debris affecting two nerves in my left leg...very painful! After initially seeing Dr. Madigan, I elected to try the less invasive steroid epidural, leaving surgery as the last option. Unfortunately, after experiencing only temporary relief from the second epidural, I had to choose surgery, the last resort, but I had outstanding results! I am back to my life walking my dogs, driving distances, and walking without pain! I am so grateful to Dr. Madigan for giving my life back! I would highly recommend Dr. Madigan, who is conservative, but if surgery is the necessary decision, he got the job done! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Thanks to my care at KOC, I can go about my daily tasks and responsibilities without any pain. Before my surgery I was in constant pain and had no strength to raise my arm above my head. Now I have a vertical range of motion that is greater than 160 degrees. The rehab went well. I had 12 sessions and gradually worked my way up to where I am today. I am 100% satisfied with my surgery. Thank you Dr. Spencer, I greatly appreciate you and your staff for the professionalism and care you have shown me. Truly God does His work through people like you!

Thanks to my care at KOC, I can walk just fine without a limp of any kind just three weeks after my total knee replacement with Dr. Botero. My physical therapist has been blown away by my progress. This is truly going to change my life. Thank you KOC! You all are the BEST!
– Charles, Maryville
Thanks to my care at KOC, I can get up from the seated position without experiencing pain. My total knee replacement went exceptionally well and my recovery time was fast. After getting out of surgery around 3 p.m., I was seated in a chair in my room that evening and released from the hospital to go home before noon the next day. I had very little pain after the surgery. PT went great (5 weeks) and within four months I am better than ever. Thank you Dr. Botero for a great job! I would recommend Dr. Botero to anyone thinking of a knee replacement.

Thanks to Dr. Amber Luhn at KOC for the care she and her team gave my daughter that put her on the road to recovery. Thank you Dr. Luhn for being so positive and encouraging!
– Mary, Knoxville
Thanks to my care at KOC, I can walk again, pain free. Due to vascular necrosis, my ability to walk on my left leg was very limited and I had much pain. Dr. Botero did my hip replacement and I never experienced a minute of pain or discomfort. It was smooth sailing for me. I am eternally grateful to this doctor with the kind bedside manner. He is such a gentleman and takes time to answer questions. He'll do my other hip when it is time.
– Susan, Knoxville
Thanks to my hip replacement with Dr. Botero, I ran a full marathon without any pain just 13 months after surgery!

Thanks to my care at KOC, I can do things I haven't been able to do in years! After Dr. Nadaud did marvelous replacements of both of my knees, I began ballroom dancing lessons. My husband and I have been dancing for a year now and have entered four competitions. We are having a great time dancing! My new knees have allowed me to be active without the pain I previously endured. Many thanks to Dr. Nadaud and his wonderful team!

Thanks to my care at KOC, I am getting back to full range of motion, strength, and grip. Dr. Ambrosia is a very caring person with the most wonderful bedside manner I have ever received from a surgeon. He explained his very conservative approach, indicating a desire to avoid elbow replacement surgery and the associated complications. I am so thankful that Dr. Ambrosia was put in my path to help me on this difficult journey back to health.

Thanks to my care at KOC, I can live life pain free again! Dr. Paul Johnson is a fabulous doctor. He agreed to do a cervical fusion that he believed could be (and I believe proved to be) a difficult one. He is a skilled surgeon who also has a good bedside manner. He makes you feel comfortable from the outset. He speaks plainly to help you understand your problem and what he proposes to do to try to help you. After having severe pain and tingling in my arm and shoulder for several months, I awoke from surgery pain free! There was little pain in the weeks following surgery and I am now, five months later, pain free and pretty much back to a reasonably active lifestyle. I am counting on my upcoming visit with Dr. Johnson to be final and to be given the green light to do everything I have always been used to doing. I would recommend Dr. Johnson to anyone for any spinal problem.

Thanks to my care at KOC, I can actually walk on my right foot without ANY pain. Thought for many, many years I would never be pain-free with my right foot. Put off ankle bone fusion several times. Dr. McPeake was nothing short of amazing when I finally decided to have the surgery. If you are needing this surgery, go ahead and do it. And choose Dr. McPeake. You will be very pleased and shouting his praises just as I am. Thanks Doc!!!
– Ron, Knoxville
I am over 300 miles of hiking with the new hip Dr. Nadaud gave me in 2015...pretty good for a 60 year old wouldn't you say?! My quality of life continues to be all I wanted and had hoped for! I offer my gratitude and thanks to Dr. Nadaud and all the staff. I hope I can be an inspiration to others..it's NEVER too late!!
