I am 53, Dr Kelly was referred to me by my PCP and several friends. I had a torn meniscus and Dr Kelly operated, stitched it back together, I went through all my physical therapy at Resurgeons and 13 months later I am writing this review to say that I am completely at the point where I was prior to my tear. Dr Kelly was awesome and I highly recommend him as surgeon and Monica at Kennesaw Resurgeons Physical Therapy as a therapist. Thank you both. You guys rock!

Dr. Kelly performed my first knee surgery almost 6 years ago. The process was very easy on my end and his office made it a breeze to take care of my knee issues. Now, I'm having the same issue on my other knee and his office has gone above and beyond to address my concerns and assist me in scheduling my surgery. I have seen other doctors and would suggest no one else but him. He is thorough in his explanations without making you feel like you need a medical degree to translate.
