“Dr. Zlotnicki performed a total knee replacement on my left knee on December 14, 2021. He and his staff kept in contact with me during my recovery to ensure that all was going well. At one point, my legs became extensively swollen. While at therapy that day, the therapist called the doctor, and Dr. Z. immediately came over to see me. Six weeks after the surgery, I can walk for half a mile at a time and have very little pain in my knee at all. I am thoroughly happy with the results of my procedure and will be coming back to Dr. Z to get my right knee replaced in the near future.”
– Carson D.

Hip Reviews

5
“Dr. Zlotnicki is great. He saw how I was walking and limping and listened to my issues. His associates took x-rays, and he saw the deterioration and arthritis in my hips. The right hip was worse, and he recommended replacement. Everyone at Carolina Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center has been great. I’m sure I’ll have to replace my other hip; Dr. Zlotnicki is keeping watch on that. He is leaving it up to me to let him know when I’m ready to schedule that surgery. I have no concerns and have complete confidence in Dr. Zlotnicki and another successful hip arthroplasty when the time comes.”
– Michael S.
5
“Eight months after hip replacement surgery and after seeing a chiropractor, I had some questions about my surgery and some resulting pain and difficulty walking. Dr. Zlotnicki was very patient in explaining and showing me X-rays of my lower back sciatica and related spine issues. He even gave me copies where he identified specific problems for my chiropractor at Hay Clinic to help him better understand and treat my situation.”
– Gregory G.
5
“Prior to seeing Dr. Zlotnicki, I thought I was going to have to apply for permanent disability; other surgeons did not know how to do the surgery. Dr. Zlotnicki was able to perform the surgery successfully. I am totally pain-free. Dr. Zlotnicki is very patient and friendly, and he listens. He answers our questions; I highly recommend him. I even told the previous surgeon about Dr. Zlotnicki being able to do the surgery, and he plans on referring other patients to Dr. Zlotnicki.”
– Ann H.

– Lenita R.

“Dr. Zlotnicki provides excellent pre-surgery, surgery, and post-surgery care. In the case of my hip replacement, he took the time to explain every detail of the procedure and assured me every step of the way about what was going on with the procedure. He kept my family informed throughout the procedure as well. During post-surgery, he visited me to review the results and next steps. The communication I received from Dr. Zlotnicki gave me great comfort.”
– Jimmy M.

“Dr. Zlotnicki is great. He saw how I was limping when I walked and listened to my issues. He did x-rays and saw the deterioration and arthritis in my hips. The right hip was worse, and he recommended replacement. He is booked weeks in advance, and I would like to get the surgery done sooner than that. I really appreciate Dr. Zlotnicki. He listened to my questions and concerns and was patient with me before, during, and after the surgery. Dr. Zlotnicki gave reasoned answers that I could understand. I felt confident in his surgery skills and experience. All the staff, including the X-ray technicians, nurses, and physical therapists I saw at Carolina Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center, were friendly, helpful, and patient. The surgery went well. In recovery, I had some nausea from the pain meds, and Dr. Zlotnicki kept me overnight where I had the surgery. I’m sure I’ll have my other hip replaced with Dr. Zlotnicki. He is leaving it up to me to let him know when I’m ready to schedule that surgery. He is not pushing the surgery. I have no concerns and complete confidence in Dr. Zlotnicki.”
– Michael S.
