  • About Me:

    Kenneth Kleist, MD Orthopedic Surgeon

    Today, knee and hip replacement procedures make up about 80% of my orthopedic practice. One of the reasons I chose this specialty is because, to me, there is nothing more gratifying than restoring a patient’s mobility. It is incredible to see you start enjoying the activities you love most with your function restored.

    I feel that forming a partnership and having open dialogue is important from diagnosis through recovery. I will listen to how your problems affect your everyday life and be straightforward about the pros and cons involved with treatment. If surgery isn’t the best fit for your situation, we will work together to explore other options.
