"My knee had been bothering me for a while & had finally become unbearable. Dr. Knox performed a partial knee replacement. I was so impressed with his technique and treatment. He is committed to the very latest technology.

Now, I’m back to playing tennis, fly-fishing, hunting & traveling. In fact, to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary, my wife & I are driving to Alaska – where we’ve always wanted to travel."

"I fell playing tennis last summer & went to the ER with a complex fracture requiring a temporary plate. I requested Dr. Knox due to his fabulous work on Steve’s knee. Dr. Knox came to the hospital (B.R.M.C.) after clinic hours to perform the initial surgery.

He put my hand & wrist back together – now, I’m doing great. His therapists worked with me both physically & mentally. They are as awesome as he is. I’m an avid tennis player & I played two whole sets today for the first time!"

"I have always been active, but after a recent kayaking trip, my hip pain became unbearable. My friends recommended I see Dr. Rauls. His bedside manner and care for patients was highly recommended.

Not only was he caring, but he listened. Dr. Rauls was very thorough and helped me understand every aspect of surgery and recovery. He patiently answered all my questions.

I had hip replacement surgery in March, and within one month I was kayaking again! I was basically pain free within one week of surgery. Now I’m back on the river and traveling again.

My life has not stopped from my surgery. It has rejuvenated me! I’m able to enjoy retirement."

When All-State Basketball player Jordan Alford of Thayer, Missouri wrecked her knee on the court, her family’s first call was to Knox Orthopaedics. Having just spent the 2013 season as the Conference Player of the Year and Team MVP, Jordan’s future mobility on and off the court depended on the successful repair of her ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) & Lateral Meniscus.

Dr. Knox performed the surgery in March 2013, as the Lady Bobcat’s season ended.
On April 25, after a few weeks away from the game she loves, Jordan tweeted...

"I will never take walking for granted again!"

After physical therapy, it wasn’t long before Jordan was back on the court and lighting it up, just as she had before the injury. In fact, her ACL & Lateral Meniscus repair was such a success, she was able to perform at an even higher level during the 2014 season and was chosen by the Missouri Basketball Coaches Association to the 2014 Class 2 Girls All-State Team!
