“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"!”

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.”

“After suffering for several years with severe pain and walking difficulties, I am finally experiencing relief. Dr.King performed knee replacement surgery on me in January 2013 and I have been most pleased. Since I've already had one replacement surgery, I can very much know the difference and can highly recomment him. Dr. King along with the therapists from Rehab at Work in Columbus, MS have helped me achieve improved mobility. I am now able to enjoy simple activities which use to be so difficult.”

“Dr. King performed TKR surgery on my right knee. Six months later, I forget all about that knee and the problems it once had. I believe Dr. King to be a very skilled surgeon and a compassionate doctor. As soon as possible, I hope he will do my other knee. Thank you, Dr. King.”

“Patient mailed a thank you card to Dr King which was received 7/18/13 - the card read as follows: Thank you, the phrase is simple and the words are few, but behind them lies a world of appreciation. Special people like you make the world a brighter place. Patient signed card as follows: I've known doctors in several countries-you are one of the great ones. May God richly bless you and your family, Johnny Wilson P.S. Thanks for the personal attention. Dr. Scott thinks you are a blessing to the community, so do I.”
