Here are a few success stories from past patients.
Dr. George and the entire Ksf staff,
I want to thank you guys, you are amazing. Very Thoughtful and Caring. After trying many different options available Dr. George and i agreed that my only real option was surgery. Even though I was on the young side for this procedure. I was very scared but i knew that i had the best doctor on the job. I had a knee replacement March 2012. I was only 49 at the time and had worked in retail for over 20 years on my feet.My knee hurt so bad i was unable to do my job as a retail store manager. I was scared and was concerned about my recovery if i would be able to return to my job. Dr. George and his staff were with me every step of the way. I returned to work after 3 months not at 100% but better then before the surgery.
It is now approaching a year since my surgery and i am thrilled to report that i am pain free and feeling wonderful. I can kneel and bend and even dance. Dr. George is an amazing doctor he always took the time to listen and help. The Physical therapy department is also outstanding they really pushed me but thats what it took so Thank you all very much. Keep up the Great work.
Thank you very much for staying late yesterday to take the appointment with my son Philip. After injuring the same ankle several times in the past few years (and KSF’s ongoing care), it gave Shannon and me great peace of mind to know that there was no new break and that Philip would be able to manage his trip to Waco for orientation at Baylor today.
We have been patients of KSF going back to 1991, and we appreciate the care and attention we have received over these long years. I think Shannon saw either Dr. Kant or Dr. Fitzgerald in 1991 on an emergency basis for her back on the day before we left on vacation for a cruise, and Dr. Stuart did my ACL surgery back in 1995. Most recently, I saw Dr. Kant for a problem with my calf last November (and, Dr. Kant, I’m happy to report that I have totally recovered after the 8 weeks of rest you suggested – I’ve been back working hard on the elliptical trainer for 6 months now with no further pain or complications).
I am hopeful that we won’t need to see anyone at KSF on an emergency basis again anytime soon, but we greatly appreciate the consideration and care that was shown to us yesterday very much, Dr. George…please pass along our regards to your staff as well!
Have a great day…
I just wanted to thank you for taking good care of me when I was in your office a couple of weeks ago! I wish all of my doctors had your bedside manners. Although I waited for sometime to see you, it was well worth it. Just showing that you cared meant so much and as a patient, I wanted to commend you on your service and everyone I interacted with in your office was courteous, had smiles on their faces and seemed to enjoy their jobs. Great Job! Dr. Rosen. See you in couple of weeks for my surgery.
About Dr. Fitzgerald
I had surgery on my left shoulder by Dr Fitzgerald that at 77 I was concerned. Everything was wonderful. From the doctor to his staff and thanks also to Rehab-Andy really got me through,even the girls up front were great. All I can say is thank you all.
A word about Dr. Ray Fitzgerald,
Dr. Fitzgerald is a kind, caring person and an artist with extreme attention to detail, exquisite control of his "tools of the trade," and a master of the art of orthopedic surgery. As a patient, I am the person who has injured himself repeatedly and never chose to seek medical assistance. Dr. Fitzgerald was kind enough to "tatoo" his name above his work on my knee. He is truly a good human being.
Thank you Dr. Fitzgerald!

Dear Dr. Kant,
Thank you for the interest you took in me and in alerting my other doctors. My iron level dropped to 25 and my red blood count was low. I have had another series of two iron infusion treatments and am beginning to feel much better, due to your persistence in notifying my other doctors.
I was in real pain when I came to you but it is much better now. I have trusted and appreciated you for over 25 years now and always will. The two back surgeries that you performed on me have allowed me to still enjoy coming to work every day. I turned 86 in July and my only plans are to keep on keeping on- and stay on my strict diet...
Dr. Rosen & Staff
Thank You!Thank you for all that you've done for me. In the short time that. In the short time that I've gotten to know you, you have all been very generous, friendly, and truly caring. Those of which are difficult qualities to find in one person, much less an entire staff. I am forever grateful to you.
Thank you so much for helping me to get back in the saddle.

I'm back in the game. Thanks!
Dear Michael Berkowitz (KSF Administrator),
Let me begin with thank you. Your staff at KSF Orthopaedic Center is phenomenal. Dr. Michael George greeted me with genuine interest in my right knee injury and he really listened to me. His caring attitude continued throughout my surgery and follow-up appointments. It is satisfying to have a doctor who cares. His arthroscopic procedure went perfectly. I have healed and am without pain.
Alicia Walker was my therapist. She greeted me with a friendly smile each time asking me how I felt. She made me work and encouraged me to continue my exercises at home, which I did diligently. I have beenin therapy before and have never had such a good experience and great results. Her care was the best one could have.
I am one pleased patient who wants to compliment these excellent professionals and who really appreciates the wonderful care I received. A simple thank you would not be enough.

Thanks to your wonderful repair job on my leg, I hope to be skiing on Thanksgiving Day. I wish you a peaceful Thanksgiving.
Thank you for your wonderful work repairing my broken leg back in February. I believe you used 2 plates in my leg and whatever it is it doesn't ring the alarms at the airport security stations. During several trips in recent months I have gone through the security at Houston, Atlanta and Boston airports and nothing set off the alarm. On a recent trip with my son we traveled to London, Berlin,New Delhi, 3 stops in the Middle East and Athens, Greece. The only place that the metal in my leg seemed to set off the scanner was in a hotel in Jordan. I inadvertently found out I can run of my repaired leg. We stood in the security line in London for an hour and a half and they were making the last call for our name on our non-stop flight to Houston. We were anxious to get home and took off running to get to the gate and down the jetway. We made it but it took about 10 minutes for my heart rate to recover.
I could never put into words or fully express my gratitude to you for taking my case, especially with it being a Mississippi Workman's Comp situation. I hope you have received full compensation for your time & talents spent on my arms, and I hope you'll always know how very much I appreciate your being there for me. You are someone I totally trust & believe in.
It is an incredible blessing for me to have a competent & talented hand specialist/surgeon to turn to. I know it will be a while before I'm completely back to normal after such surgeries, but it's wonderful already being free from the pre-surgery discomforts I have dealt with for the past 2 years now. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
You are a fantastic physician/surgeon, a wonderful person, and you have a gift for making your patients really feel important & cared about. I will continue referring you to everyone I know, both here in Houston & in Mississippi, as I do believe you are truly the BEST in your field.
Again, my heartfelt thanks to you, your office staff, Nancy (& all the therapists) for being so sweet, patient, & understanding with me. It's weird to think someone will miss their doctor & his staff, but I know I will. This whole experience has been an answer to prayer for me and I'm eternally grateful.

Dr. Alan Rosen,
Old woman skis again thanks to Dr. Alan Rosen! After 4 surgeries in 8 months, all parts and pieces are working. Torn tendons in the right elbow, torn ligament (complete tear) in the left index finger and torn cartilage in the right wrist. Nice job Doc!
My shoulder injury was caused by improper use of weights in 1990. The pain flared up every so often and a Cortisone injection usually took care of it for a few years. I now own a small business designing and fabricating stained glass lamps. In 2004 the recurrence of pain made it impossible to work on my glass, it was time for a permanent solution for my pain. Dr. Kant has treated my husband and children with the usual assortment of broken bones for over 25 years. Our now grown children still see him when needed. Therefore, I have a great deal of confidence in him. In March of 2004 Dr. Kant diagnosed a torn Rotator Cuff and Bone Spur. It was so convenient to have the physician’s office, MRI and Physical Therapy Center in one location. My surgery on April 28th 2005 went very well, and I started physical therapy one week later.
My team of therapists, Ricky, Andy and Evelyn were wonderful. Ricky was always checking my technique and progress. Andy and Evelyn stayed with me the entire session, always monitoring, encouraging me to do more and keeping my spirits up when I thought things were going to slowly. I finished my therapy in August of 2005, just four months after my surgery. I had regained 98% of my arm function, which I have heard is far above the normal result. I cannot say enough about the entire staff at KSF from the physicians and therapist to everyone who assisted me in my surgery and made my recovery a great one. I am back at work and have finished my first post-surgery lamp, something that I couldn’t imagine 6 months ago.
Thanks to you, here we are in Southern Chile. My knee is doing fine. I am being very careful with it, but having a great time. I may never come back. I just wanted to thank you for the great care from KSF. It's impossible to express how much you did for me. I was so worried that my skiing and hiking days were over.
I would like to take a few moments to compliment Dr. Rosen and the KSF staff for the outstanding professional service I received.
From the time I arrived at KSF, for my appointment with Dr. Rosen, my experience was positive. The entire KSF team was wonderful. I cannot think of one of your teammates that did not express a positive professional attitude. I felt their true concern for my welfare as the patient.
After my surgery I was assigned to Amy and Elisa for my rehab. What a wonderful support team; professional, patient, knowledgeable, friendly and concerned. Luck was with me the day I received that assignment. Because of Amy and Elisa and the atmosphere they create I always look forward to attending my next therapy session. Amy has even called my home, checking to make sure that everything was ok. I was not assigned to the other team but my observation is that they are just as caring and professional and represent the KSF team well.
My experience with and exposure to the KSF team has been much better than I expected. It is obvious that you, and the owners of KSF realize that people are your most valuable asset. It is my humble observation that KSF has assembled a team that any organization would be proud of and a team your competitors would love to employ.
Again, a special thank you to Dr. Rosen, Amy, Elisa and your wonderful team.
