“Dr. Damion Walker is AMAZING! He is not only the Best Orthopedic & Robotic Assist Surgeon in the Midwest...the best Surgeons come to him to learn how to be proficient in robotic-assisted joint replacements. Dr. Walker gave me back my youth, energy, and what was taken from me the past "bad" surgeries I had had. Dr. Walker does not sugar coat, he will not tell you something that you don't need. Listen to his direction and you will be a success story too! He is highly respected in this community both in the medical field and by patients. I recommend him to everyone I see struggling, limping, or in need. Nine (9) of my acquaintances & friends over the last 2 years and they chose have been blessed by Dr. Walker and his team. One Friend Pam had a crushed shoulder with a new Rotary Cuff, many with Total Knees and a friend most recent with a Total Hip Replacement. She had had the other one done prior by a different surgeon out of state years ago...She said, she was not looking forward to this one, but it was a breeze. All the surgeries I know of had been a huge success! My story included, but I started with a torn Medial Meniscus in 3 places from a personal trainer I had hired. I found a knee surgeon, by word of mouth only. I did not research or interview any other surgeons, I had surgery, it failed, we went back in 7 weeks later and my surgeon was intoxicated assuming from the night before and I tried to stop the surgery but He and his team denied me that right. That surgery was worse than the first, more painful, he took all of the meniscus leaving me bone on bone. we did, but it was worse, and I could hardly walk. Arthritis which I had never had, now was taking over and the pain was horrible..throwing my hip and other knee off. I was getting 40-55 cc of fluid drained of my knee every other week. The Bill's were also stacking up and life as I knew it was over. I was at a point in my life that I did not think I would ever have "quality of life" back. I became a candidate for my own Stem Cell therapy and that helped for 1 year. Then my Insurance Company dropped out of KS. It just seemed to be getting worse. I talked to one of my nurse clients and she said...you don't have to live like this. Call Dr. Walker, then someone else said his name. Well, I went through that before. I was not about to just go by hearsay. I knew I was not going back to my old surgeon, I had some issues that I won't mention him...saying, but it led me to seek a better more qualified Surgeon. So, the reason I shared my journey with you...is I did the " Leg Work" pursay - Don't bother looking for anyone else. Dr. Walker cares about making sure he gives you a new joint that feels and acts as if you were born with it. He may not have the sweetalking outgoing bedside manner ladies like to have (no offense Dr. W), and he may not come to visit you each visit to make you feel warm and fuzzy. Know this, He does care about you and he wants you to have the best care, that's why he has the best Team alongside him. He is only one man, trying to fix many people. So, don't discount his seriousness for lack of concern. I guarantee you, you will be thanking him every day for the rest of your life!!!! So, I did my research & I watched Dr. Walkers videos on YouTube and any Dr. willing to put videos online is obviously amazing, Don't make the same mistake I made, chose the right Dr. the first time...save time money and quality of life!!! If I or my family should ever need any joint repair or replaced in the future Dr. Walker will be doing the surgery!”
