Patient Testimonials

  • Thanks to my care at KOC, I had minimally invasive knee replacement surgery and I can walk, climb stairs, and ride my horses! Only 3 days of P.T. was Needed! No pain! Nurse returned my calls promptly! The entire experience was unbelievable easy and painless free!
    Lucille, Knoxville
  • Dr Botero is by far one of the finest knee surgeons ever. He has a remarkable bedside manner and is totally respectful during office visits. His daily messages via texts were not only extremely helpful, but very encouraging. I can not recommend more highly his service. I am especially pleased with his mehod of surgery, including the very small incision (4”) compared to the others (10”). My scar is barely visible after 6 weeks. My physical therapist was amazed by my recovery! Dr. Botero gets a 10+!

  • Thanks to my care at KOC, I can get up from the seated position without experiencing pain. My total knee replacement went exceptionally well and my recovery time was fast. After getting out of surgery around 3 p.m., I was seated in a chair in my room that evening and released from the hospital to go home before noon the next day.

  • Thanks to my care at KOC, I can climb stairs without pain in my right knee. My experience has been exceptional - thanks to Dr. Botero and his minimally invasive technique. I also owe a debt of gratitude to the folks at KOC physical therapy. I am thrilled with the results and have scheduled the left knee replacement for later this year. I am hopeful for the same results and look forward to a huge improvement in my quality of life.

  • Thanks to my care at KOC, I can walk just fine without a limp of any kind just three weeks after my total knee replacement with Dr. Botero. My physical therapist has been blown away by my progress. This is truly going to change my life. Thank you KOC! You all are the BEST!
