Patient Testimonials

Thanks to my new ankle replacement, I can walk with dignity! I love being able to be active again. Dr. Ferguson is an awesome doctor who is knowledgeable, kind, and he LISTENS. He will accomplish what needs to be done in your best interest.

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!

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 now fix my own hair and go back to work. Two months ago I had so much pain and tingling and numbness in both arms that I was not able to do a lot of things. Thank you Dr. Paul Johnson for doing such a great job on my cervical fusion. I woke up after surgery with no numbness or tingling in my arms. Recovery was great. I would recommend KOC and Dr. Paul Johnson to anyone who needs any type of cervical or spinal surgery. He's the best. Dr. Johnson has the best bed side manner and is a straight shooter with information. Thank you again Dr. Johnson for giving me my life back. I pray God blesses you in all you do.

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 my care at KOC, I can walk just fine without a limp of any kind just three weeks after my total knee replacement with Dr. Botero. My physical therapist has been blown away by my progress. This is truly going to change my life. Thank you KOC! You all are the BEST!
– Charles, Maryville
Thanks to my care at KOC, I can go about my daily tasks and responsibilities without any pain. Before my surgery I was in constant pain and had no strength to raise my arm above my head. Now I have a vertical range of motion that is greater than 160 degrees. The rehab went well. I had 12 sessions and gradually worked my way up to where I am today. I am 100% satisfied with my surgery. Thank you Dr. Spencer, I greatly appreciate you and your staff for the professionalism and care you have shown me. Truly God does His work through people like 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 :)

Thanks to my care at KOC, I can now operate both hands. I love Dr. Ivy. He is the best. He operated on my left hand for trigger finger and right hand for carpal tunnel. The surgery went great. Thanks to his knowledge, I was never in pain. I am returning for a third time for something different. I trust him with my life! Thank you, Dr. Ivy.

Thanks to my care at KOC, I can walk without pain! I had my first foot surgery when I was 28 years old and after that I was in pain. I have had four surgeries from different doctors telling me they could fix my feet and of course they couldn't and didn't fix them. I have gone many, many years dealing with the pain. I said they would never touch my feet again until the inevitable happened and I couldn't walk. So I called KOC and met with Dr. Ferguson. He talked to me and went over my X-rays. I put my faith in him and the Lord to do this one more time. Since then I have blessed him and his nurse everyday. I am not in pain on the one foot and now I just can't wait to fix the other one later in the year. If you're in need of a foot doctor please go see him. I cannot express how happy I am with him and his staff. Even the surgery was not that bad. Yes, you are in pain, but that is to be expected if other doctors had messed you up so bad and they're trying to correct a wrong. That is my success story and thank you Dr. Ferguson and staff. I am ever, ever so grateful.

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!!

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!
