“I get to fix patients and that's the whole thing. You see somebody when they're hurt. It's also great that you can see them walking downtown, and then when they see you they’ve got a smile on their face because they feel better. That's what it's all about.”

What advice does Ken have for his patients?
“Make sure you tell us what's really going on,” he said. “Even if it's embarrassing or it's something that you may not want to share, tell us because it's probably something we need to know. And if you're in pain, call. Don't be at home and be miserable. Don't let pain interfere with your life. Let's see if we can make it better.”
