John Balthrop, M.D.
Hip and Knee Specialist
It has been my pleasure to serve this community for the last 39 years. Helping build this practice has been such an honor. I have had the privilege of meeting some wonderful people and developing lifelong friendships. Caring for you, my patients, has been such a rewarding part of my career. So, it is with both sadness and anticipation that I announce my retirement effective 4/1/2021.
I appreciate your loyalty and trust over the last 3 decades. I will be taking the memories and experiences I have gained with me into retirement. I plan to enjoy the world, island weather, and spend time with friends, family, and my grandchildren.
My Partners here at BGO will be continuing your care. I am confident that you are in great hands with this team of Physicians. I know that the Physicians and staff here will give you the best orthopedic care. If you have any questions, please call our office at 859-263-5140.

An excellent Doctor My wait was very short and his exam and explanations were excellent.
I am very pleased with the matter in which Dr. Balthrop explained my options. He does a great job informing me the procedures. I find him a very caring person. I highly recommend him to any one.
