Healing for Today. Encouragement for the Road Ahead.
“I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Kayal. He is a brilliant surgeon, and I am a testimony to that. I have had at least five different surgeries with Dr. Kayal, and all were a wonderful success. Two of those surgeries were knee replacements. My healing has been fantastic, and I feel like I have my life back again. The healing time was far shorter than I expected, and is so complete that my knees feel like they are my own and are blessedly free of pain and trouble. Even the scars from the surgeries are minimal. In fact, on the first knee, you have to look for the scar to find it–and the second knee is pretty close to that.The pain and immobility before my surgeries was so severe that I gained nearly 100 pounds. With the healing of my knees and Dr. Kayal’s post-surgical encouragement to lose weight, I have lost nearly 90 pounds since my last surgery in 2010.I am sure there are other good orthopaedic surgeons out there, but based on my experience and and those of other patients that I personally know, I believe Dr. Kayal is not just a good doctor. He is a great doctor. Friends and colleagues regularly inquire about who did my surgery because they can see the remarkable difference in me. I have encouraged everyone who needs an orthopaedic surgeon to see Dr. Kayal–and will always do so.One final thing: he is a really great guy. He has a wonderful personality and bedside manner. It really impressed me that other doctors and nurses I have met think the world of him, and comment on how they enjoy working with him whenever they have the chance. That is a real testimonial to the man.”-MJ Hewitt
