Non-invasive Pain Relief
Welcome to MK Orthopedics. Dr. Komanduri has a strong sports background dating back to 1994. He has been in continuous practice and holds licenses in five states. He's been the team physician for 10 high schools, three colleges and one university. He currently is a member of the Providence Catholic Hall of Fame for service as team physician for 25 years.
Why does this matter? Because for nearly his entire career he has been treating high-level athletes the same day or within 24 hours. He accommodates clients the same day whenever possible. Timeliness is a critical part of getting good care and early return to work. The truth is everyone should be treated like a professional athlete.
Second, a major component of excess cost is inaccurate diagnosis.
Dr. Komanduri routinely sees second and third opinions and is a peer reviewer for 15 states. He has served as the chairman of the Department of Orthopedics at his hospital for three years. He's keenly aware of cost and has saved his hospital system over $20 million a year, negotiating the cost of products required by the operating room. He is acutely aware of the cost benefit ratio that affects all of us.
Third, his exposure to peer review has made him intimately aware of the utilization review process and standards of practice. Excess utilization without medical indication is another difficult issue in Workers' Compensation. The truth is, good care is the cheapest care.
Finally, the thing that matters to us all is patient outcome. Take a moment to look at the reviews of his practice. Go to his Facebook page and see the Multiple videos of his clients. Don't believe our word, believe his patients'.
In summary, we promise and deliver patient access, diagnostic accuracy, patient satisfaction, and patient outcomes. Let's treat everyone like They are a professional athlete.
I highly recommend this place, I was told by two other Doctors that I would have to go to Chicago or Indianapolis for knee replacement surgery. M.K. Orthopedic took care of me and I am walking again
