Patient Testimonials

“I was pretty amazed that I was Able to do that only 3 1/2 months after my surgery.”
– Cindy
"For anyone who needs a hip or knee replacement, I highly recommend Dr. Herman Botero. Thanks to his skill and care, I can now walk without pain for the first time in years.

My family physician told me that KOC hires only top-notch surgeons, and they found a really good one in Dr. Botero. He recently relocated to Knoxville with his young family, I selected him for my hip replacement because of his impressive credentials and the fact that he operates at Parkwest Hospital, as well as Tennova. Dr. Botero told me that he is already becoming a Vol fan, which, as we know, is an extremely important trait for a Knoxville surgeon.

Why do I recommend Dr. Herman Botero? Foremost, he carefully helped me plan my surgery and it went flawlessly. A few days after surgery, I contacted his office when I had a concern about a possible side effect of one of my medications; Dr. Botero called me back personally to discuss the problem. He is very relaxed and unhurried during consultation, which I greatly appreciate in a physician. My wife, an astute judge of character, describes Dr. Botero as elegant and confident. If I ever need another similar surgery, Dr. Herman Botero will be my first choice."

"Thanks to my care at KOC, I can say that my arm is as good as new. Dr. Edwin Spencer operated on my shoulder, for a torn Rotator Cuff. It's been at least 5 years since the surgery. I tell everybody he's the man if you have a torn rotator cuff. I know several people that had to have their surgery redone. After I completed the physical therapy, my shoulder was as good as new. I couldn't be happier with the results. Plus, Dr Spencer is very nice and he takes time to talk to you. I wish he could be my primary physician."
