I had two injections and then just had an ablasion procedure on my neck. Dr. Fry was wonderful to work with through this series of procedures. I have for the first time in over two years woke up the last two days with absolutely no pain in my neck since having this procedure from Dr. Fry. He was great in explaining the steps to be taken to get this treatment completed. He is definitely a doctor I will refer anyone to that is having neck or spine issues.

Thanks to my care at KOC, I can use my arm at work with no pain and have the best mobility that I have had in years. The outcome far exceeded my expectations. I would recommend Dr. Spencer and his team to anybody. Throughout my visits to KOC and the surgery, I was treated very well and felt that everybody involved cared.

I had knee replacements in 2012 and 2014. It was a game changer for me, no pain. Dr. Becker was the very best and always took time to talk with me and my husband. I can now get around much better. Thank you Dr. Becker and staff. They are the best.

Thanks to my care at KOC, I finally feel stable while walking, going up and down stairs, getting in and out of the car, and standing/sitting without pain. Dr. Herman Botero was my doctor. After seeing what many of my friends have gone through with their knee replacement surgery, I was grateful that he had been trained to do the quad sparing minimally invasive procedure. My incision is literally 4 inches!! Mesh was used instead of staples, which made my therapy and recovery much easier. I was walking with no limp the next day. Because the muscles and tendons above my knee were not cut, I felt very little pain. Tylenol was the only pain reliever I took. Because of this, I was able to meet all of my physical therapy goals within four weeks. I just needed to work on building strength in my knee. My physical therapist said that she would definitely recommend Dr. Botero after seeing how successful my surgery was. Because of my success, two of my friends that need surgery on their second knee have said they will be calling Dr. Botero instead of their first doctor. I believe the most helpful thing that he does is his constant contact with his patients through texts, reminding you of what you should be doing, how you should be feeling, and what exercises you should be doing. He is your constant cheerleader. The videos that show how to do the exercises are great. Most doctors give you a paper with pictures on it that probably end up in a drawer! When you receive a text, it reminds you of what you should be doing to get better! He even throws in a joke or two. His office staff (Amber & Samantha) are very helpful and are quick to return your call. I only saw his PA once, but Joshua was very helpful. As you can tell, I can’t say enough positive things about Dr. Botero. I would recommend him to anyone.

Thanks to my care at KOC, I can keep working and enjoy life at 74 years of age. Two shoulder replacements, one in 2010 and the other in 2016 by Dr. Edwin Spencer. There are no words that can describe how successful these surgeries have been.
– Joe, Greeneville
Thanks to my care at KOC, I can now move with no pain in my lower back. Dr. Fry explained the PRP [Platelet Rich Plasma] procedure to me and I decided to try it. The procedure was very simple. One injection on left side SI joint, then ten minutes later I was on the way home. Followed a 28 day protocol, pain was gone. 2 months later we had the right side done with same results. As a patient I realize others may not get pain relief as quickly, but I would highly recommend this to anyone with SI joint pain.
