Ronald S. Kvitne, MD
Top Rated Orthopedic Surgeon

Rated 4.5/5 based on 25 reviews

Dr. Kvitne performed my knee surgery. He is fabulous. I knew going in I had severe osteoarthritis a torn meniscus and my plica was hanging by a thread. It was supposed to be an eight-week recovery but five days later I was walking no crutches at the county fair in LA. Dr. Kvitne did a fantastic job and five years later I have still not had to have my knee replaced. God bless you Dr. Kvitne you are a wonderful man and a gifted blessed surgeon.

Five start for Dr. Kvitne. Excellent doctor, service and staff. Dr. Kvitne and his staff fit me in their schedule with a very short notice. My knee had been bothering me for awhile and I wanted to go to the best. Dr. Kvitne did a thorough exam of my knee and I was in and out of his office with a diagnosis in a few minutes. I was relieved to hear I had patellar tendonitis and would be better within a few weeks with PT ; no surgery was necessary. After hearing this great news, I iced and stretched my knee. I felt better in a matter of a few days. I appreciate your caring manner and expertise, Dr. Kvitne. Thank you for listening to my concerns and all you did for me. You’re a wonderful example of who and what a doctor should be.

I’ve had several orthopedic surgeons in the last 20 years, and Dr. Kvitne is the best yet. I saw Dr. Kvitne for my right shoulder pain to get a second opinion after my previous doctor wanted to cut (without even seeing an MRI!). Not only does he know his stuff, Dr. Kvitne has great “bedside manner” in terms of explaining everything, addressing any concerns, etc. He also wasn’t keen to “cut first, ask questions later”. He wanted to try things other than surgery before getting an MRI to make a final determination. In the end, my shoulder needed surgery (“decompression”), and it went well.

One of the PT places his office recommended did a great job too (Physiotherapy Associates), and my recovery has been steady since the surgery 2 months ago. The people who work with and for Dr. Kvitne at the surgery center of Kerlan Job were great too. The fellow who did my anesthesia (an older Japanese American gentleman, whose name I forgot) did a really great job too. He called me the night before to explain the routine, and I followed all the procedures preparing for the operation over a week or two beforehand. During the day of my operation, the anesthesiologist was funny, comforting and seemed very competent. The nurse staff also did a great job, so I was quite happy with the entire experience, not only with Dr. Kvitne.

Other friends of mine have used Dr. Kvitne, and have had similar, highly positive experiences. I highly recommend him.

Loved my time with Dr. Kvitne. Everyone on staff was friendly and efficient. My appointment was scheduled for 7:30, I was out of the waiting room at 7:31, talking to the Fellow at 7:35. Both Dr. Kvitne and the Fellow gave me excellent attention and answered all of my questions and explained why I was having problems with my knee. I waited a little longer than I would have liked to be fitting for a knee brace, but that’s what waiting rooms are for. 🙂 Dr. Kvitne prescribed 6-8 weeks of PT for patellofemoral tendonitis. Can’t wait to put in the work.

Dr. Kvitne is THE BEST. If you need work on your shoulders, knees or elbows (probably some other parts, too), look nowhere else. Especially don’t look elsewhere in the clinic. Wonderful bedside manner, excellent and respected surgeon, respectful of patients, staff and physical therapists. He has a fan club in the South Bay area. Renowned by other surgeons as the best in his field. Gives equal regard and care to pro athletes and regular folk.

The best ever!  Dr. K is kind, patient, incredibly talented…I cannot say enough.  I have had shoulder and knee surgery with him and both were entirely successful.  The office is so efficient as well, I have never experienced a wait or insurance issue with Dr. K’s team.  The best…done deal.
