Testimonials An experience worth sharing

  • Patient: George Karl

    "Dr. Howell is an expert at what he does – with a passion to do it well."

    Decades of basketball as a professional player and an NBA coach left George with a half dozen knee surgeries, virtually no ACL and a lot of pain. So after 27 seasons and one of only nine NBA coaches in history to have won more than 1,000 games, he was unable to ride a bike or even play golf. Determined to get better, he called around and Dr. Howell’s name kept popping up. After that, the only regret he had was not going to Dr. Howell ten years sooner.

    George was amazed at how well his knee replacement went. Within three days, it was 100% better than it was. Ten days later he was outside and walking. With rehab and will power, today, fifteen months after his surgery, George is doing 25 mile rides,averaging 50 miles a week on his bike and back on the golf course. That kind of recovery sounds like a slam dunk.

  • Patient: James Belogorsky, MD

    "With more than 15 patents on knee replacement medical devices and over 140 professional articles, this guy is the real deal."

    Dr. James Belogorsky was never a couch potato. He was a free-style swimmer with a great kick, a 40-mile-a-week runner during medical school and an avid rock climber, hiker, back packer, downhill and cross-country skier…all hard on the knees. So when he couldn’t even make one run down the slopes without pain, he knew it was time to do something. And that’s when he found Dr. Howell.

    He looked for quality indicators – Dr. Howell’s low infection and complication rates, his reduced time under anesthesia, shorter time in the hospital and early ambulation all spoke volumes about his competence. Importantly, he was also impressed by the mandatory Joint Education class held by those providing his care, including the physical and occupational therapists. It appears Dr. Belaorsky made the right choice.

    Downtime was minimal and he was back to work in just a month, walking 4 miles a day on hospital rounds, waterskiing in six weeks and recovering nicely. In fact, so well that Dr. Belogorsky has had his other knee replaced and is looking forward to returning once again to his active life, thanks to Dr. Howell.
