graphic of knee pain

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

She took her time with me, explained everything & answered all of my questions without being in a hurry. She also addressed my knee problem that day & made the treatment plan to where most places the first visit would have only been a consult & I would have had to wait weeks to get back in. I would highly recommend Dr Vasicek.

Excellent We are both around 60 years of age and while we have been healthy (knock wood) most of our lives, we have still seen a fair amount of doctors and their staff. This is by far the friendliest and most competent office we have ever been in. You are greeted with a smile by a wonderful staff, not a vacant stare or rude comment anywhere. Each person we interacted with knew their job and answered our questions quickly. Dr. Huff is so impressive, looks you in the eye and doesn’t make you feel like he is in a hurry to see his next patient. He is very knowledgeable and friendly. Jeff has been putting off knee replacement surgery for a lot of years and when we left Dr. Huff’s office he told me that after meeting with Dr. Huff, he felt good about having the surgery and wasn’t nearly as nervous as he was before going in.

I had surgery on Mon., got out of hospital on Thurs. and was at our church yard sale on Sat., without a cane or walker. He had prayer for me before surgery. I thank GOD for the knowledge and talent that HE has given to Dr. Christensen. I think most importantly you need to do the therapy as I think it helps you to have a speedy recovery. I'm now going to have surgery on my other knee soon. I highly recommend him and his staff.

I’ve been very pleased with the attention she gives me during every appointment. And my partial knee replacement surgery went very well.

Highly Recommend for TKR's I am totally pleased with the care & treatment provided by Dr. Christensen and his team during the 15+ years I have been a patient. I had TKR's on both knees in past year & while the recovery was a challenging & painful process, I am 100% pleased with the results. He was always willing to listen to my concerns and questions. His PA's Matt & Evan are the best! And, Dr Christensen referred me to awesome Physical Therapists: Chris for in-home PT & Bethany for outpatient PT at Blue Grass Orthopedics.

He has been following up my knees since he replaced the first one 20 years ago and they are still going strong. He has always been concerned with my health and well being, a fine doctor and human being

This was my first total knee replacement by Dr. Vasicek but certainly not my first visit. Each time that I have visited BGO I have been treated with the utmost respect and concern for my health and welfare. Dr. Vasicek and her associates perform at the highest of professionalism. As for my knee replacement, the surgery went exceptionally well as is the post surgery rehabilitation. I would recommend Dr. Vasicek to anyone requiring orthopedic help.

I have mentioned him to several people I know with knee issues. My opinion of Dr. Ellingsen has not changed now that he no longer practices. His knowledge and recommendations can, in my opinion, be trusted.

Dr. Jerry L. Mercer

I went for knee problems, he gave me shots that help the knee heal without surgery. He was very caring, and intelligent, and helped the pain in my knee. I would highly recommend him.

I’m not quite 2 months out of a revision on my left knee (2nd revision following botched surgeries by 2 Louisville orthopedists). I can’t say enough good things about how good Dr. Denehy is. He listens and is very concerned with the patients wellbeing. After having 2 other surgeons mess up my knee, I’m very appreciative that Dr. Denehy fixed their mistakes.

I’ve been to her many times for broken bones, bad knees, and surgery! She’s kind, caring, and extremely skilled in her profession!
