Knee

The knee is the largest joint in the body and one of the most easily injured. It's also one of the most common joints replaced.

The simple act of getting out of bed in the morning can be painful for a person with an injured knee. Whether you're suffering from a past injury or from the gradual wear and tear of arthritis, knee pain can make it difficult for you to maintain an active lifestyle

I have nothing but 5 stars to say about D’Angelo and staff.I also have spinal stinosis, bulging disc, collapsed disc, pinched nerves. Dr Lockstadt and staff have taken greatcare of my back. Dr Lockstadt has gone to greatlengths to keep me mobile and working. I do not know what Iwould do without their expertise. I had many people warn me not to see them. I do not need a best friend. Ineed someone to fix my bone deterioration. These guy’s have taken care of me with great concern and insight.They do not want to do surgery first thing. Some of the brightest and innovative doctors in Lexington. Thank you Bluegrass Orthopaedics.

Highly recommend Dr. Denehy's clear, concise explanation of what to expect from a knee replacement. He answered all questions from both of us.

Wonderful! He really takes the time to offer his patients the best care. Would not consider anyone else for hip or knee. His skills are amazing, plus he really demonstrates that he wants his patients to get better!

She listened to my answers and questions and was very caring to any issues I had. I have been to this clinic before for surgeries and therapy and would recommend them to anyone with orthopedic needs. Top notch medical network compared to the local medical group in my area, who haven’t helped at all, and getting an appointment was easy and urgent.

Had my custom Conformis total knee replacement done at Bluegrass orthopaedics surgery center in 2015. Dr. Huff and his surgery staff did an absolutely awesome job with my outpatient surgery on my total knee. Since then I've also had two shoulder surgeries with Dr Huff. I believe with all my heart that Dr. Huff has unmatched skill as a orthopedic doctor! I drive 90 mi to see Dr Huff because there is no other doctor that cares for his patients as much as he does.
