TESTIMONIALS

Returned me to the sports I love!

★★★★★
5 5 1
Dr. Kersey successfully treated my patellofemoral arthritis with examinations, MRIs, injections, an arthroscopy, and--eventually--two patellofemoral arthroplasties. Following treatment, my cycling is better than ever! I am reaching my maximum potential as an athlete, and my daily activities are almost always pain free. Dr. Kersey is a meticulous surgeon who is also compassionate and caring. He lives the healthy life he supports others in achieving. I very highly recommend him!
