The first surgery performed by Dr. Ko was simple, but the surgery and results received were excellent. I have a high level of confidence in him. He’s also very personable and I enjoy seeing him.

Dr Ko is a great surgeon and a great person. Always positivity flows talking with him and provides great guidance. One of my friend did a surgery to scaphoid at Rush Hospital and when compared my scar is smaller and healed better. I’m glad and in forever debt to Dr Ko and his surgical skills.

Dr. Ko was so confident he could resolve my nerve issue that had evaded everyone else for years that he made me believe it. Literally within days of surgery I could stand for hours, where prior to it if I stood more than 10 minutes my leg went numb followed by burning pain. I feel like I have my life back and so many opportunities in front of me now that I'm no longer restricted by this pain. Thank you Dr. Ko!
