Back In Action

Our patients at Kansas City Bone & Joint Clinic are very important to us. Here are some great stories from a few of our patients on how they got ‘Back in Action’.

    I was hunched over so bad that when the hips were done I stood, my daughter said to me, ‘Mom, I can look you straight in the eye’ and she said, ‘it looks like you gained two inches.

    I could do things with my left arm which I never could do before.

    It was extraordinary the difference- the way of life I live now compared to what I did before. I can run up and down the stairs like nothing. I have no hip pain at all. Zero. I go hunting. I go fishing. I go to the gym. I coach my son’s baseball. I coach my daughter’s softball. I can go snow skiing, play golf…

    At one point I had very sharp bone on bone type of thing. Almost like a stinging needle poke is what it feels like. At one point I had to actually walk with a cane. I couldn’t go anywhere without a cane because any length of time walking would take its toll.

    I appreciate his medical expertise. He was a great surgeon. He explained everything he was doing. He never wanted to rush anything. We could’ve gone ahead and done a skin graft early on, but he was willing to be patient, as were we, in letting it heal..

    I am feeling great. I keep a 4-year-old grandson and so we are constantly up and down off the floor and doing things and I am not limited to what I do.

    Dr. Patel was a very caring and compassionate doctor. Sometimes you forget he’s a doctor because he’s so personable. And when you’re talking, he was listening and he gave you his full attention.

    Thomas S. Samuelson MD: A Patient Success Story
    Five months after my operation, I was back hiking some pretty strenuous hikes in the Yosemite Valley and that area of California and I got some great photographs to show for it and I was just very very pleased with the outcome from my experience her...

    I thought to myself, I’m never gonna be the same, ever. I’m never gonna exercise again. I’m never gonna be able to ride my horses again. But he put me back together and now I’m horseback riding and working out and walking the dogs and just absolutely living my normal life.

  • Dr Elton was wonderful. I have had no real pain and am back to working out after surgery 10 days ago. She is personable, explains everything and a seriously good doctor

  • I have always had fantastic service at KC Bone & Joint. Dr. Bruce and his staff has always taken great care of me over the years in cases of emergency and elective procedures. I take comfort in knowing that any doctor that is assisting Dr Bruce is highly qualified. Dr Josef was polite, easy to talk to and very informative about my condition and my future options. A great bedside manner and his techniques were pain free!

  • I was seen quickly and very happy with Brandon’s ability to identify the cause of my foot pain. He recommended a place to get over the counter shoe inserts. I went there and was very happy with the service I got, especially the great fit the store employee achieved by trying on several options. The inserts are very comfortable. Brandon also gave me a list of exercises to do. They are easy to do and don’t take a lot of time, even though it’s recommended to do them 3 X’s a day. This is 3rd day using inserts and doing exercise & I already feel a difference! In a good way. He also set me up for re-evaluation in 3 months, with the option to cancel if I continue to have problems. Love this path, as opposed to surgery or something more

  • Dr Patel and Dr Elton Thank you sooo much for giving me my hands back! After a couple of years of issues with my hands falling asleep randomly, Dr Patel confirmed the diagnosis if carpal tunnel syndrome in both hands. I've only been typing 30+yrs🤷🏽‍♀️ Dr Elton performed my surgeries and today months out of surgery (recently celebrated 25 yrs if employment at my job, I had to make sure to give them a review. Oh, and scar, what scar? Not noticeable on either wrist! Thank you so much truly 💗

  • I have been going to KC Bone and Joint Clinic for about 3 years now. When I first went, I could hardly walk. I am now having totally pain free days at a time with both of my knees and my right hip. I have been able to resume most of my normal activities and enjoy them to the fullest. Thank you KC Bone and Joint Clinic.

    Sharon Baker

  • I saw Dr. Saunders, and he was amazing! He was very friendly and took time to listen. He provided thorough explanations for my pain and concerns. He gave me a great treatment plan that would help me avoid a cast or surgery. The whole staff was awesome. I highly recommend!

    Jae Na

  • I met with Dr. Latteier recently for an initial appointment to discuss a hip replacement. I was very favorably impressed with his intelligence, kindness and competence. He spent a great deal of time with me discussing my condition and explaining the procedure etc. After the hip surgery, I will leave another (hopefully EXTREMELY favorable) review. Thank you.

    Kathryn Rankin

  • After my Dr. retired from KC Bone and Joint, I was set up with Dr. Latteier. I really liked him. He's very personable and explains everything.

    Linda Keith

  • Dr. B. is professional, attentive, and knowledgeable. His bed side manner is exceptional. He takes his time when explaining treatment options. He and his staff are honest and ethical so I know I can trust him. I feel safe when I am in Dr. B’s care. His work has been a blessing to my orthopedic recovery process. If you need a surgeon go see Dr. B, he’s qualified and treats his patients with dignity and respect. My overall experience was highly satisfactory. Thank you Dr. B for your services! When the time comes for me to get an ankle replacement, I will be seeing Dr. B.

    Sarah Something

  • I’ve been to KC Bone & Joint several times over the past years and have always had top of the line care. My most recent visit was no different. I was checked in and seen promptly, and the nurse and doctor really took the time to have a dialogue with me regarding my symptoms and issues. I wholeheartedly recommend KCBJ!

  • Dr. Walker is amazing!!!

    Dr. Walker is an amazing Doctor! I had a SUPER frozen shoulder, a torn rotator cuff and two tears in my labrum. I had indescribable pain. Dr. Walker knew right off that surgery was my only option. I could not lift my arm AT ALL, but now I have 95 percent rotation of my arm/shoulder 3 months post surgery. I am so grateful to him for his care, knowledge and physical therapy suggested treatments. Physical therapy is a lot of work, but so well worth it to have movement in my arm again. Thank you:)

  • I was very pleased with how Dr Walker helped me understand why my thumb hurt. He helped me understand my treatment options so I could make the best informed choice. I am very much looking forward to my next appointment with Dr. Walker. The staff was very friendly and caring.

  • I consider Dr. Saline a miracle worker. He has replaced my hip and both of my daughters and did an excellent job. He is one of the most caring Dr.s I have ever known. Thank you Dr. Saline

  • Dr Salin is so kind and really cares about the best treatment for you. He listens to what you are going through and will try all before he will do surgery. I am thankful that I have him for my doctor.

  • Best result possible

    I am a 73 year old retired lawyer who suffered from trigger fingers for years. I stopped playing golf, pickle ball, gardening and playing catch with my 4 grandsons. This spring Dr. Eldon operated on my hand and I could not be happier with the results. I have regained all my hobbies and activities that my hand condition prohibited for several years. She was excellent on the follow up appointments and I will always be thankful to her. I highly recommend Dr. Eldon and her staff to anyone.
