"He was wonderful about explaining the problem. He offered me the solution and explained, gave me the pros and cons which I appreciated. I really like his PA." – Marlowe D.

"Dr. Kunapuli is such a great man and a great surgeon. I saw Dr. Kunapuli regarding a hip joint replacement. I had a prior replacement of the  opposite hip, which did not go well. With my first hip replacement, I had intense post-operative pain, required blood transfusions and had a prolonged recuperation. My hospital stay was seven days. Dr. Kunapuli assured me that his surgical procedure would not be at all similar  and told me what I could expect with his surgical approach. He told me that I could expect much less pain than I had experienced in the previous surgery; he assured me that I would have adequate pain control. I would not require a blood transfusion, and I would have a very short ( one to two day)  hospital stay. He took time to explain why I could expect the difference and answered all of my questions. I felt confident and scheduled my surgery. Dr. Kunapuli was right! I had minimal pain, which was taken care of by the medication. I was up and walking with assistance (non-weight-bearing) the evening of the day of surgery. I was home in 48 hours. My recuperation was completely different and I am a very happy patient! My story following my second hip replacement surgery is very different and my friends who are facing the procedure always hear a song of praise for Dr. Kunapuli and his great bedside manner, and excellent surgical abilities! My hips and I are now happy campers! Thank You Dr. Kunapuli!" - Hermina W. 

"Dr. Rahhal at the first visit explained what was to be done including showing the shoulder replacement parts. He also explained what he was going to do to avoid potential problems. He did not rush me with all my questions. The recommendation of using a passive machine immediately made a tremendous difference in my fast recovery. I did not use any pain medication after the first 3 days. I am extremely pleased with his care and the results." – Myron K.

"All I can say is "Thank you so much!" to Dr. Browne and his P.A. Chris Stephens. I had my first hip replacement done 3 years ago at another major Oklahoma orthopedic hospital and it was a long recovery process. Since that time, my other hip was getting worse, to the point where the ache and the pain prevented me from participating in activities with my high school kids (like chaperoning band trips). Also, I couldn't do my favorite activities anymore like hiking, biking, and walking. I was only 52 at the time and I had no patience for dealing with this pain anymore. I needed to be ready and physically able to make it through my twins' senior year of high school. I didn't want a sore painful hip preventing me from enjoying this important year with my kids. So, I tried to schedule an appointment with my previous surgeon, but soon learned that he had retired. Dr. Browne was highly recommended by one of my husband's  co-workers since Dr. Browne had replaced his hip and he was very pleased. Also, when I had mentioned Dr. Browne's name to others, his name was recognized as one of the best orthopedic surgeons in Oklahoma. Well, that was enough for me! I scheduled the consultation and soon thereafter  the surgery. My surgery was June 2, 2016. I was a bit nervous as I was being rolled into the OR that morning, but PA Stephens was very calming and made me feel at ease as I went under. I couldn't  believe how fast my recovery was afterwards. It was awesome! With Dr. Browne's skill in conducting the surgery and PA Stephens assisting, I couldn't  have been in more capable hands. No complications! Three weeks of home physical therapy, 4 weeks of out-patient therapy, and two post-op doctor's  visits, and I've  never felt better or stronger. My hip feels amazing! A true test was climbing up the bleachers at our high school football field for the opening performance of the Band (my kids are members of) and our football team's  first scrimmage. No more crippled me! I feel liberated from pain and feel strong! I now enjoy long walks, as well as climbing bleachers. I look forward to future hiking trips and other fun activities. I can't  thank Dr. Browne and PA Stephens enough for giving me my life back....free of pain! I'll  always be grateful!  will recommend Dr. Browne to anyone who needs help with hips or knees. Thanks again!" – Monika G. 

"Feels much better. Thanks for everything." – Mike R. 

"I had a complete tear with retraction of the ACL. The first physician told me I needed a TOTAL knee!  I got an appointment with Dr. Lorton (quickly) and he said I needed to fix the ACL. There was no evidence of arthritic changes and no bone on bone. He did my surgery and sent me to rehab and I am doing great. I am so glad I went to Dr. Lorton for a second opinion! He did a fantastic job and is very personable, will definitely see him first if I have any other problems and would recommend him to anyone needing Orthopedic care." – Debi B. 

"Four weeks prior to USA Ultimate Masters Midwest Regionals I tore my hamstring pretty bad. Dr. Emel put me on an aggressive PT routine and the entire staff and facility were exceptional. I was able to play in a limited role at regionals and the Tulsa Ultimate Federation's Master team, Outlaw, qualified for Nationals. Eight weeks after my injury I played 100% healthy in the national championship tournament in Denver, CO." – Daniel N.  

"The atmosphere was always welcoming and we never seemed to have to wait for long periods of time. Dr. Boone was great. Very knowledgeable. I would recommend this center if you ever need an orthopedist." – Mackenzie H.

"Dr. Lorton was exceptional! My shoulder has never felt better! Thank you Jay, for everything you did!!!" – G.F.
