Patient Testimonials

Dr Botero is a great surgeon and this is a testimony to his work. This was five weeks three days out from a knee replacement. We road 12 miles. I have an e-bike which is a big help, but still pretty good for an almost 70 wear old woman.

Thanks to my care at KOC, I have full range of motion of all of my fingers and wrist after such an extensive injury and invasive surgery. We are so thankful that Dr. Crawford was assigned to me at Children's. My follow up care has also been top notch. He not only helped me, but a month or so later my big brother ended up with a fracture while playing basketball. We can't recommend Dr. Crawford enough.

Thanks to my care at KOC, I can get back to life. I could not do simple daily tasks. I am young, 53. Dr. Smith replaced both knees. Athletic and bowlegged since childhood were a bad mix. I am now 3.5 months post op on second knee. So happy and pain free. I am walking three miles...three times a week now. I am beyond grateful. Life is good again. He is simply the best. I can’t recommend him enough. Thank you thank you thank you! I danced with my husband in the kitchen. First time in four years. You can’t beat that. :)

Thanks to my care at KOC, I can highly recommend Dr. Smith. From pre-op to post-op, Dr. Smith and his team were very informative as to the surgery process and rehabilitation. I am now 14 weeks post surgery and am enjoying a pain free new knee!

Dr. Dilworth is a great surgeon. He and his staff are very warn and helpful. I would totally recomend Dr. Dilworth for any of your orthopedic needs! They definitely get 5 stars from me. Thank you Dr. Dilworth for the wonderful work you did for me. I will definitely continue to refer anybody and everybody to him!

Thanks to my carpal tunnel release, I can sleep without a brace on my hand! No more waking up in the middle of sleep due to numb fingers or burning pain. I can't wait to get my left hand fixed too!
– Joe, Maryville
My surgery was a huge success. Had a double fusion on my neck that had been bothering me for a couple of years. Dr. Madigan was able to not just relieve the pain, but completely eliminate it. I finally feel myself again and would highly recommend his services. He also follows up and makes sure you are well taken care of. His staff is amazing and the group at KOC was nothing but incredible. Hopefully I don't need this surgery in the future, but if so...I would do it again.

I had excellent care. Dr. Herman Botero did my hip replacement surgery. I give him a 10. He is a great doctor who cares about his patient and excellent at his work. He also had good bed side manners and sent me a text every day which encourages you. He takes time and answered all my questions. When I woke up from surgery the bad pain I had was gone and I am so thankful to Dr. Botero. I can walk and have my life back.

Thanks to my care at KOC, I can do the same outdoor activities that I did before my accident. I had fallen off of a piece of farm equipment in May of 2019 and thought I had permanently damaged my "wheels." I am an avid backpacker, park service volunteer, hunter and part time farmer. A friend of mine recommended that I see Dr. Mathien about repairing my knee after my "one second of stupidity." I was 60 years old when I had the accident. Dr. Mathien decided that I was healthy enough to repair my meniscus which according to my physical therapist I was too "old" for such a procedure. Thanks to the expertise and confidence Dr. Mathien had in his abilities the surgery was a success. There was some work on my part to recover but without his steady hand I don't think I would have been able to do what I do today. I continue to hunt and in October of 2020 I completed an 8 mile very rugged backpacking trip with a fully loaded backpack that weighed in excess of 40 pounds. Thanks, Dr. Mathien for your confidence in me and more importantly yourself. I am very grateful!!!

Thanks to my care at KOC, I can get back to living pain free again. Thank you Dr. Madigan and your excellent staff.
– Steve, Strawberry Plains
Absolutely top notch. Dr. Spencer repaired a complete rotator cuff tear in my shoulder. He explained the procedure from beginning to end. And took the time to answer any questions I had. He's truly amazing. I would and will highly recommend Dr. Spencer and the entire staff at KOC. Thanks again.
– Robert, Powell
Thanks to my care at KOC, I can start my new good paying career off. I will be lifting a lot and should not have problems with a numb hand. Robert Hawkins is exceptionally caring, nice and informative. The injection didn’t hurt at all. Loved the whole ordeal. My hand is already better!
