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

Desperate for a solution to her pain, Risner turned to David Sedory, MD at Optim Orthopedics. Dr. Sedory had previously performed surgeries on Risner’s knee and shoulder, and she knew she would be in good hands. Read More

Ratings/Reviews

Dr. Sedory is fantastic. I had my meniscus cleaned out the day before Thanksgiving and by that Friday I was already walking around. I have had knee surgeries before and this one has been a very short recovery time with almost no pain. His nurse is quick to get back to you if you have any questions or concerns. It has been a pleasant experience with Dr. Sedory and Optim.

Staff were pleasant, knowledgeable and efficient. Dr. Sedory was thorough, took his time and explained things in a manner that I could understand.

Took ample time to examine me, did not feel like we were rushed as it sometimes seems at other doctor offices. Very thorough exam and a Laymans explanation.

I found Dr. Sedory to be compassionate, caring, and very professional! My overall experience was excellent!

Love Dr Sedory best Dr ever would recommend him to everyone optim orthopedics is the best place to go

We had an incredible experience with Dr. Sedory and his team. Extremely personable, explained everything in detail, didn’t rush through appointments and placed huge emphasis on slow and steady rehabilitation for daughter who was a D1 track runner at Mercer University.
