Patient Testimonials

“I am currently 67 years old and have had a few knee surgeries in the past…a repair of my right knee [2 ligaments torn], a right knee replacement and a microdisectomy that left me with foot drop in my left leg. I found myself with major restrictions even after following all the doctor post-op orders to the best of my ability.

I finally found myself needing a left knee replacement after 30 years of making that left side do all the work.

I live in NC so I researched NC and VA for a surgeon and found Dr. Pinkos. His military experience of roughly 1500 procedures as well as his calming demeanor was exactly what I needed. There are quite a few surgeons with more experience and phenomenal reputations but I felt Dr. Pinkos was the one for me.

He understood my entire situation and all the issues that had brought me to where I was. The left knee replacement went exactly as he described. I was up in no time, tossed crutches in a matter of a few days and rehab was a breeze.

I would select Dr. Pinkos and his staff without any hesitation. He is not the most famous of the OrthoVirginia surgeons but he is the best in my book!” – Mark
