I can't say enough good things about the people at MK Orthopaedics. Dr. George is taking wonderful care of my sons ankle injury, and Dr. Komanduri is taking great care of me. The staff is friendly and ALWAYS willing to help. They always seem to find time to fit you in if you need to see a Dr. fast. Thanks MK Orthopaedics for everything!
I am only 48 years old however I have many joint problems. I have been to other Dr's in the past for my problems, at first I was misdiagnosed, However when I started going to an ortho dr it was not Dr Komanduri, at this time he only worked on lower extremities, and my problem was my right shoulder. I than started having lower extremity problems and I was introduced to Dr Komanduri. In the 10 years I have been with this Dr he has been nothing but excellent!!!! He has put in 2 total hips and a total knee replacements. He has also fixed my right shoulder and left wrist, since I have been seeing him he did start working on the upper extremities. My right shoulder was fixed by another dr however it did not last long only a couple of months. I had a debreadment and core decompression. This other Dr said the only thing that could be done was to get a total shoulder replacement and I was not willing to get that done yet. When Dr Komanduri fixed my shoulder, doing the same thing the other dr was supposed to do, the fix worked for about 5 years. Dr Komanduri has fixed the shoulder 2 more times and each time it works for over a year, and payer to getting it fixed I am unable to use the arm at all, he fixes it and I am able to use it again. He is a doctor who listens to what the patient wants and tries to work with the patient. Ya there are times you may wait a little while, however I believe it is worth the wait. I have been to other doctors for my problems with my joints and have found that this doctor is the only one I will trust with my joints. I know I will still have a long history with Dr Komanduri, he will probably be replacing lots more of my Joints but HE is the only doctor I will trust to do that. In case you are all wondering what my problem is it's called avascular Necrosis (AVN) as people with this problem call it. Normally you will get it in your hips or just one joint, I was lucky and it has been hitting all of my major joints. However I want to say a big THANK YOU to Dr Komanduri and his staff for all the help they have given me. I know if I have a problem, like falling or dropping something on my foot, all I need to do is call the office and they will see me as soon as they can and I can avoid going to the ER just to have them tell me to see an Ortho Dr. I would recommend this Dr and the whole office to anyone who is in need of an ortho doc. Also for those who say he gets upset if you choose a different place for PT, I have gone to different places for PT and nothing was said to me about it, I do prefer to go to his PT people tho, they have done the best for me.
I cannot say enough about Dr. Komanduri and his staff. I have had my new knee replacement for a year and I am getting along just fine. He is an excellent doctor. He and his staff will take the time to answer all of your questions.I felt very comfortable with him as my doctor. Excellent bedside manner - which is very important! I have referred him to many people.Thank you Dr. Kommanduri for making me able to get around again without pain.
I had been having worsening pain to my knee for the past year. It was getting so bad, I never had a day without pain, and also developed an ulcer due to all the NSAIDS I was taking. I saw one Orthopedic Surgeon on the recommendation of a co-worker. I found him to be cold, and also seemed more interested in making money on therapy, I did not go back. The pain continued so I decided to give Dr. Pizinger a chance. I was impressed from the start with the receptionists, staff, xray techs, etc. I was very pleased with Dr. Pizinger. He was honest and did not sugar coat anything. He also gave me options, and his professional opinions on what would work or probably wouldn't. I never felt pressured to go one way or the other. The MRI was ordered and done in the office, results the following week. He was very thorough with explaining to me and my husband what should be done. Again no pressure at all. Surgery was scheduled with no waiting. The office staff took care of everything including making sure my insurance would authorize everything. I didn't have to do anything. I am so pleased after surgery. The knee pain was almost gone immediately. I was back to work in two weeks. I also cannot say enough about the therapy. They were able to accommodate me so I didn't miss any work. I can't say enough about the early morning crew-Jim, Angie, and Jen. They were all personable and you almost felt like you were in a breakfast club in the morning. They made the therapy almost fun, it was done professionally, but with some humor too. I am so glad that I chose MK Orthopedics and Dr. Pizinger and his crew. I know If I ever have problems with my joints, i won't hesitate to call them again. Thank you so much!
He is without a doubt the best Dr to have found with my knee problem.With 3 prior surgeries incuding tkr and then a revision by other surgeons.Faced with a knee cap that wouldn't stay in place.That would with any kind of walking motion slide unexpectedly and cause me to fall.So many times and limited to only one option to fix by my prior surgeon.Which was so drastic and complicated with no promise of it even working.I just couldn't face doing another such surgery.I thought this would have to be my life.Being afraid to go out or in my house of unexpected falling.I found Dr Pizinger for problems with a torn rotator cuff.His credentials were absolutely amazing.I was so impressed .He took his time, went over my MRI explained everything so I could understand my problem.I decided to wait on th at surgery.But I knew he would be my surgeon when I was ready.I was thrilled to hear he did knees also.So I went to him with my knee problem.He explained what his opinion was to try and fix my problem.The pros and cons but he gave me hope.The surgery he suggested is one I could accept to have done.I then spoke with Dr.Komunduri and Dr.Pizinger.Who said he would assist with my surgery also.They did my surgery I'm 61 yrs old.The outcome was absolutely amazing more than I ever imagined.After 2 months it wasn't even necessary to continue to be monitored. He is a humble man he talks to you with respect . He's not full of himself he doesn't have to be.His accomplishments prove his greatness as a surgeon.The staff is just great also.Thank you Dr.Pizinger from the bottom of my heart.You gave me back my ability to walk again without fear of falling.YOU ARE THE BEST,,,
