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 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.

It was no pain at all. He is very professional... I saw Dr.Balthrop for a knee injection. I have had two previous knee injections elsewhere that were horribly painful !!!! So I was dreading today so bad. I Literally never felt a thing . It was no pain at all. He is very professional and caring yet very down to earth. I've been to his office twice and will continue as needed.

Dr. Huff is a very personable and friendly orthopedist yet professional. He helped ease my fear of getting knee injections for severe pain and now my knees don’t hurt nearly as much. Highly recommend his services!

Just had left leg total knee replacement. Will have to have right knee done in a few years. Plan to have Dr. V do that knee as well.

Dr Balthrope is a straightforward guy that gets you up and out of the hospital quickly. I have had 2 successful Hip replacementments, 1 knee replacement and a shoulder repair.

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.

My knee was good as new for a period of five years. Ligaments Are still great, knee is now bone on bone. I willhave Dr D’Angelo do kneereplacement. 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.

Dr. Vasicek explained every procedure and showed me my MRI so I could understand what was wrong and what she could do for me. I was really in pain and I needed someone to help me, she melted all my fears and took action. She checked on me often after surgery and I really felt that she understood. She really listened. Thanks to her, I am happy with my new Christmas Knee.

I prayed all spring and summer for god to lead someone across my path with the best of best doctor that was a godly man/woman for my knees ,I'm so thankful he answered my prayers, he was not only a Christian but he prayed for the patient and prayed for his staff that helped him during surgery. I called and got right in to see Dr Christian Christensen ...I loved him, trusted him, loved his staff and three days later he partially replaced one of my knees !! I would highly recommend this wonderful doctor
