Lyle – Wartburg, Tennessee

Partial knee replacement put positivity back into my life. I’m an avid hiker, and in June 2022, I had tightness, swelling and pain in my knee after a hike. When fluid removal and medication were unsuccessful, I scheduled surgery for October 2023. The KOC team fully prepared me and were friendly and professional. Dr. Matthew Nadaud told me that I would return to hiking, a great morale booster. I completed physical therapy and in February 2024 hiked 9 miles through the most rugged terrain in Frozen Head State Park. It took limping around for months before coming to grips with the reality that I needed surgery, so I urge you to not wait to get the help that can improve your life!

Success Stories

Lonnie & Charlotte – Cleveland, Tennessee

We are active seniors who have had six joint replacements in the past two years, all performed by Dr. Matthew Nadaud, who came highly recommended by friends. In the fall of 2021, Lonnie had both hips replaced and Charlotte had a knee replaced. By December, we were able to stand and pack shoeboxes all day for Operation Christmas Child. Two more surgeries came a year later, and we took a 12-day trip to Israel that December. Since then, we’ve logged thousands of RV, kayak and bike miles. The last surgery in December 2023 was Charlotte’s hip replacement. We are extremely pleased with the staff at KOC and the surgical center and highly recommend Dr. Nadaud. Thank you for giving us pain-free years to make memories!

Taylor – Walland, Tennessee

On 8/15/23, 9 weeks after my total hip replacement by Dr. Nadaud, I climbed Katahdin, the iconic north terminus of the Appalachian Trail. I was concerned that this year would the first time since 1957 that I wouldn’t get to repeat this climb. Dr. Nadaud encouraged me to give it a go, and his recommendation was well grounded. I made the 4.4 mile hike, climbing through around 4000 feet elevation gain, with no discomfort from my right hip. Big thanks to Dr. Nadaud and his crew for helping me maintain the level of activity that I crave!

My son Austin is talented in basketball. I am so glad I took the recommendations to take him to Dr. Rappé. He did an amazing job fixing his ACL and meniscus. He is now on his journey to full recovery. He was dunking the day after being cleared. It wasn't his prettiest dunk, but that is amazing after just a day. We have had a great experience with all KOC doctors. I just have to give a extra shout out to Dr. Rappé. He makes you feel confident and he is very sagacious on the knee area. I am so blessed that my son was in great hands. He took great care of him and you never forget that. He is now getting back to starting to play ball. I would recommend Dr. Rappé to anyone and especially his expertise of the knee area. I feel my son can get to the next level after being in such great hands! Thank you Dr. Rappé!

Thanks to my care at KOC, I can continue enjoying the activities I love. I put off knee replacements for years, thinking it would not benefit me at my age (73). I can not thank Dr. Nadaud and his staff enough for what they have given back to me. After my visit with Dr. Nadaud and all his encouragement, I had both knees done July 1st 2019. 13 weeks later, I was on a flowrider (surfing), and have plans to be back on the snow (snowboarding) this winter. It was my idea for many years; if I have knee replacements, they will not support any extreme activities. If you are one who has the same fears, talk to Dr Nadaud. All I can say is THANK YOU!!!!!

Thanks to my care at KOC, I can now hike in the Smokies and walk without pain!! I now have 500+ miles of hiking under my belt!! In April 2014, Dr. Nadaud performed bilateral total knee replacements on me. Prior to the surgery, I had been in a lot of pain and had a significant limp and altered gait and I had dealt with this for several years. I was reluctant to have such a major surgery but I am so glad that I did! For years before the surgery I could not even walk long enough to shop without so much pain! I dreaded even grocery shopping! Having hiked before my knee problems, I never thought I would be able to hike again. Wrong!! One year after I had the surgery, I was able to hike to Mt LeConte! This past Tuesday we hiked to Mt LeConte again which put my husband and I over the 500 mile mark for hiking in the Smokies since 2016. I attribute my ability to hike to Dr. Nadaud who essentially gave me back my ability to live an active life! I do not have any knee pain now! Of course, I have a little soreness after a long hike but this is normal! The soreness is gone in a day or so even after a long hike! I am so thankful for Dr. Nadaud and his expertise and kindness. I recommend him wholeheartedly! He is the best from my perspective! I am eternally grateful! Thank you Dr. Nadaud!
