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. Maguire, my quality of life has been restored. I suffered with neck, shoulder and arm pain for three years, but 13 weeks after surgery all pain and discomfort are gone. Thanks to everyone at KOC that had any part in my surgery. Thanks again, Dr. Maguire.

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!

I was 16 when I had a horseback riding accident and was flown to UT trauma center where we later found out that I had broken three places in my back. I had a severe concussion and a hematoma on my brain. I started seeing Dr. Joshua Johnson a few weeks after my accident and he was extremely helpful. He addressed any issues or questions I might have. He made me laugh at every visit, and got me the help I needed. He helped me in school because I was really struggling with my brain. I am now myself and am shadowing him :)

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!!

It is a tribute to Dr. Ferguson's marvelous abilities that Tylenol was the strongest medication needed for pain relief following my somewhat extensive surgery. His personality, at the very least, equals his surgical skills. I personally recommend Dr. Ferguson if you have foot problems. He is a great guy and a surgeon beyond compare!

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 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 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.

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!!!

Thanks to my hip replacement with Dr. Botero, I ran a full marathon without any pain just 13 months after surgery!

Everyone that helped my little girl was so sweet to her. Dr. Gaylord is adorable. His bedside manner with children is top notch. After he spoke to my 7 year old daughter about her broken arm, she said "I think he really loves me, mom." He made her feel like she was so special and important to him. Thanks Dr. Gaylord!
