Patient Testimonials

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!!

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 can wear fun shoes again! After having constant foot pain for three years, Dr. Ferguson fixed my foot and it feels better than it has in years. I would encourage anyone dealing with foot pain to go see Dr. Ferguson and the great staff at KOC.

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.
– Phyllis, Mosheim
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.

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!
– Jeanette, Knoxville
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
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!
– Wayne, Maryville
Thanks to my care at KOC, I can go back to work full time and exercise again. Dr. Rappé treated me like I was his only patient. Very professional, knowledgeable and confident, but also humble. And always jolly! I once told him he was a combination of "The Big Lebowski" and "Patch Adams." I recommend him highly!
– Ellen, 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 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!
