This is our wonderful staff team!
How the surgery has helped me - I will be able to walk without foot pain and without hip pain as I will no longer be walking on the outside of my foot. This is why I would recommend Dr. King- Dr. King came highly recommended by a good friend whose mother had a successful experience and outcome. I could not have been happier with my own experience, and friends who visited me in the hospital also took note. Dr. King is a very good listener, and is kind, and compassioniate. He is also very good at explaining things to patients so that they feel like they are a part of a team. He is a very talented, well trained surgeon, and I feel lucky to have him as my doctor.”
“Before I came to Dr. King, I could barely walk. I was in severe pain and under constant care of another orthopaedic doctor for at least 2 years. I had 2 knee surgeries on my knee and multiple painful injections. I had to walk stooped over, my right leg could not support my weight, I had to use a cane. My right leg was shorter than my left leg. Dr. King saw the way I walked and ordered tests that showed it was my hip causing my problem. A total hip replacement surgery was done and the outcome was EXCELLENT! More than that a new way of life for me. I can stand up straight, my leg is the same length as the left now and my pain is gone!! Before I had to use a skooter when I bought groceries and when I did I was in do much pain, I couldn't stand it. Now I can get my groceries without using the skooter, and I can walk without the pain or using the cane. Dr. King is wonderful. He is caring and smart, and has an excellent bedside manner. He promised me he would take care of me, and he promised me I wouldn't have any pain, and he promised me, he would fix my problem and he did all of that and more! I would recommend Dr. King to anyone and everyone! And I have lots of my family members and friends now that use Dr. King. They call me, "His Walking Miracle"!”
