Dr. Ference Steps in to Solve a Very Troubled Knee

Karri shares a personal journey of overcoming knee surgeries gone wrong beginning in 2007, leading to ongoing issues until meeting Dr. Ference. Despite skepticism, his compassionate care identified past mistakes and provided corrective surgery that significantly improved her life.

Subsequent successful ACL surgery and handling of a challenging lipoma situation showcased Dr. Ference’s expertise and unique practice of offering prayer before surgeries. Karri highly recommends Dr. Ferencz for his exceptional skills and compassionate approach to medical care.

“…The warmth and openness of your interaction invited me to ask for a medical opinion about another unrelated issue that had been troubling me for a few years. Without hesitation, you examined me and not only gave me an immediate opinion, but provided a prescription for physical therapy…

‘I will remember that there is art to medicine as well as science, and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.’ – [Excerpt from Hippocratic Oath] 

I was delighted to meet a man who is a zealous follower of this guideline.”

“Quality of life is very important, and the way my knees were before the surgeries, quality of life was diminished. Mobility was slow…and pain was getting worse. With my left knee [done using Mako technology], on the second day following surgery, I put the cane down and never picked it back up. Therapy was very fast. It was overall a very great experience.”

“Dr. Ference is truly one of a kind. Most important, he is an incredibly skilled surgeon. I have seen him literally change lives by helping even the most challenging cases, including those who other surgeons were unable or unwilling to work with. Unlike some surgeons, Dr. Ference is personally involved in all of his patients care- even after surgery. He is passionate about helping his patients regain full potential. He has kindness and compassion rarely seen in healthcare these days. Highly Recommend Dr. Ference.”

“A friend of mine who is a retired surgeon recommended Dr. Ference for my knee replacement. So I was expecting a very competent doctor. What I didn’t expect was his kind manner and personal attention. He immediately explained the procedure in great detail in a way that I could easily understand. He answered my questions and concerns. THEN, he asked if we could pray together. 

Being a Christian, I was then very confident that I was in good hands.

My follow up visits were met with the same attention and reassuring conversation. My surgery could not have been more perfect and my rehab has been amazingly effective. Most of the credit goes to Dr. Ference for his very talented skills and his careful attention to details afterward. I would recommend him to anyone. I am forever grateful to my friend who recommended this fine person!”

“Dr. Ference is the most amazing surgeon I have ever met. I am a 40 year old woman who has had 12 knee major knee surgeries, so I am a unique case. My tibia was dislocating and several other doctors refused to help me. Dr. Ference knew immediately what was wrong and how to fix it, giving me my 12th surgery. I am now able to walk on my own, with no problems. On top of being immensely intelligent, he is also one of the kindest people I think I’ve met. He genuinely cares how you are doing. His staff is also very kind, and always take the time to make sure I have everything I need. I cannot recommend him any higher.”
