Dr. Katz did a total knee replacement for me 13 years ago. It changed my life because I was in a great deal of constant pain, which obviously affected every thing I did. I went to him again 7 years ago when I broke my leg. He took excellent care of my fracture, being very concerned that my replacement was o.k. (same leg) It was a long recuperation, but he was caring and thorough. Should I have another concern, I would return to him. By the way, he was referred to me by two people.
I h.ave had 6 total knee replacements performed by this Doctor. ALL FAILURES This is a bad Doctor. Do not use him
Dr. Katz is an amazing surgeon. He did a double knee replacement on me. It changed my life I working out and run again. You can barely see my scars...they are thin little white lines. I highly recommend him!
Dr Katz Is an excellent Doctor. A few years back he did an excellent job of diagnosing and treating my knee for pain until he successfully performed a knee scrapping procedure.He estimated I would need a Knee replacement a few years later and I think the time is near. I have complete confidence in Dr. Katz as the surgeon to call to perform this delicate surgery.
He's a butcher. Stay away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I highly recommend Dr. Katz!! I had a total hip replacement and could not be happier with the results. My surgery was complicated because I had pins in my hip from a surgery done while I was in jr. high. Dr. Katz took time before the surgery to explain how he would deal with the pins and possible complications. He and his staff gave incredibly thorough preparation for the surgery through a 2 hour class and pre-surgery appointments. My case worker called me and checked up on me faithfully. Dr. Katz not only spoke to my husband post surgery, but came up to my hospital room after surgery so see how I was doing. He personally called me at home the night of the surgery. Following the surgery, my hip feels fantastic! I have had very little pain and have regained flexibility and motion that I never imagined would be possible. I am so grateful for the care I received! Dr. Katz is kind and caring and a very skilled surgeon! I give him my highest recommendation! He is excellent!
Dr. Katz replaced my knee 4 months ago. My recovery was slow and painful, but I am convinced it was due to my physiology and inability to take anti-inflammatory drugs. Physical therapy seemed to keep things in a painful holding pattern for me. I have to say that I feel Dr. Katz did a great job on the surgery. In contrast to the person who complained that Dr. Katz didn't provide adequate pain medication, he encouraged me to begin taking it again after I stopped very early on, as he knew I was having great difficulty sleeping. I am improving more and more each week. There is no silver bullet for our problems as we age, and each of our bodies is different and responds to surgery and healing in its own unique way. Dr. Katz and his staff, particularly his patient assistant Meegan, did very well by me and I would recommend them and use them again.
I had three visits with Dr. Katz recently for my Knee issue. He initially advised me to get X-Ray and Physical Therapy done on my knee, but since there was no progress with PT, he then asked me to go for MRI. According to Dr. Katz, both of X-RAY and MRI results were normal, but yet my knee issue was getting worse. In my last appointment with him, like all my previous appointments, he casually said that there is nothing that can be done to my Knee. What kind of Doctor would say that. This is a worst doctor I have ever met. He does not know what he was talking. I would NOT recommend him to anyone.
I cannot recommend an orthopedic surgeon who coldly leaves a patient in pain without adequate medication. There are other surgeons in the area who are known to actually be concerned about their patient's level of pain. Believe me, Richard Katz is not one of them. Maybe he has been practicing too long and has become uncaring because of it. Whatever the reason, he does not provide adequate pain relief.I had a total knee replacement, a surgery well known to be very painful. Richard Katz was not accessible by phone after I got home, and argued about the limited, inadequate pain medication that were provided. Night after sleepless night I cried in pain. Daytime was nightmare, too. My progress in physical therapy was significantly reduced once my pain was not addressed.Recovery did not have to be this way. I had a history of being able to manage opiods after surgery, so abuse was not an issue. I told him that and he did not care.I urge you to consider other surgeons who will take your pain seriously. Recovery from surgery is tough enough without adding unnecessary pain!
I had a great experience with Dr. Katz. Their office is very busy for a reason....they’re good! My primary doctor said X-ray showed I had arthritis in my hip causing my alignment to be off and give me pain when walking. Nope! Dr Katz reviewed X-ray and said I didn’t have arthritis but rather tendinitis. He gave me a cortisone shot and that was the first relief I’ve had in months! He was professional, courteous and very helpful. I highly recommend this practice.
I have been seeing Dr. Katz for more than eight years for knee arthritis. The eight years included knee injections to elevate pain (which they did) and surgery to remove a cyst and repair a torn maniscus. Recovery from surgery was rapid and was back to my regular activity in ten days. I highly recommend Dr. Katz to anyone having knee problems.
GOING TO DR. KATZ.. DIANOSED WITH PAIN IN LT KNEE.. TORN TENTANT MAKING ME WAIT FOR 1 MONTH FOR TREATMENT, BECAUSE HE IS ON VACATION. WENT FOR SECOND OPINION. HE WAS WRONG. MISBUSCUS TEAR.. NEW DR. TREATED WITH BRACE... NO SURGERY..NO PAIN. THIS DR KATZ DOES NOT KNOW WHAT HE IS DOING...GET A SECOND OPINION. BE WARE.
He did total knee replacements on both myself and my husband ( a few years apart). My husband's had to be repeated because his patella (knee cap) was not positioned correctly and his operated leg was actually then shorter than the other. The 2nd surgery corrected the problem. Oddly enough, the exact same problem happened with my surgery in 2017 but he is balking about doing a revision. I remain in pain with an unstable knee.
He makes you wait over an hour to get five minutes with him, then recommends expensive surgeries that are not supported by current medical science. Avoid at all costs!
I have experience with Dr Katz going back 25 years when I was pregnant with my son and suffering from heal pain. Moving forward I have had 2 knee replacements with him and have recovered quickly and pain free with the exception of "normal healing pain." I followed his recommendation of pre-op strengthening and worked with the post op physical therapist as per their recommendations. In doing so I am able to not only get back to yoga but have no pain restricting my daily life. Dr Katz is great!
Dr Katz Fixed my leg when another surgeon screwed up. I almost lost the leg if it had not been for Dr. Katz. I had four surgeries with him to fix everything. He was wonderful. God bless this man. I would not go to anyone else!
My recovery from total knee replacement has been significantly more difficult due to inadequate pain control! Do not use this surgeon unless you want to suffer. He does not care.
Had Total hip replacement 2 weeks ago and couldn't be happier. No pain from surgery just stiff muscles. Dr. Katz is the best from beginning to end!
HAVE KNOW DR KATZ FOR OVER 30 YEARS, MY MAIN GUY TO GO TO, REPLACED MY LEFT KNEE AND WAS ABLE TO LEARN THE HOSPITAL ON THE 2ND DAY, PROFESSIONAL IN ALL ASPECTS. HIGHLY RECOMMEND
Dr. Katz is an excellent surgeon. I had a Total (L) Hip Replacement. I chose Dr. Katz because of his expertise and his abilities. He is very direct and to the point. More importantly, he is an extremely skilled surgeon. I would highly recommend him.
