Kelsey King, Hip Arthroscopy

Kelsey King has always led an active lifestyle and participated in sports, so minor injuries are nothing new to her.  That’s why she just tried to ignore the pain in her hip when it first started a few years ago. The pain lingered and got progressively worse, but Kelsey did her best to push through. She was swim coach at the Savannah College of Art in Design, where she had been a member of the swim team and graduated from in 2013. “When I was coaching, I was always on my feet so I would really be hurting then,” she recalls. “But because I knew I would probably need surgery, I kept putting off seeing anyone about it.” Read More

Ratings/Reviews

Had a great visit, Doc Sedory is clear and precise with his words. He was to the point on my treatment options, and lined up my next steps for me. Awesome experience, im looking forward to my next visit after my MRI.

Dr. Sedory performed my total hip replacement. He is an amazing doctor who takes his time, listens and cares about his patients. He answers all of my questions in a way that I could understnd. It is a refreshing change to not feel like I'm being rushed out of a doctor's office. I highly recommended him.

Dr Sedory is great. He gave me hope when I thought chronic pain would be my new normal. He made me feel comfortable and was very knowledgeable in his expertise. I am 14 days post op left hip replacement and I feel great. Recovering well and will keep moving forward. I highly recommend Dr Sedory.

Repaired my shattered tibia. I had my follow up yesterday, and he not only explained what the road would be going forward, he also allowed my spouse to listen and ask questions about my recovery.

All was well

Excellent service. Would recommend to anyone Dr. Sedory and staff is excellent.

Dr Sedory operates on my shoulder. He did a wonderful job and I am recovering more quickly than expected. In every phase from initial visit to pre-op, surgery, and post-op care, he was professional, personable, communicative, and a pleasure to have as a doctor. Additionally, the staff at the Surgical Center were superb. I rate him a 10.

My best to Dr. Sedory and Emily. They both have been exceptional and I believe they will continue to be.....Thank, Daniel O’Keef

Dr. Sedory repaired my shattered upper tibia plateau. He did an amazing job putting me back together. He was very caring and answered all my questions. Emily, his medical assistant, was very helpful and encouraging too. I can highly recommend Dr. Sedory for both his skill and kind nature. I thank the good Lord for Dr. Sedory's great care! I highly recommend him!

He is always kind, pleasant and knowledgeable. He involves me in my care and discusses all options. I have had several intra articular hip injections and he is awesome. I could not recommend him more highly!
