If you EVER need a hip or knee replaced, do not consider going anywhere but MCJR. Dr. Carter and his PA Adam are absolutely the best. They are so personable and genuinely care about their patients. I would trust my joint surgeries with no one else but these guys!

Doctors Carter & Jackson combined for 2 knees and a shoulder for me & a hip for my wife. The outcome was excellent and all joints are still operating. Plus Doc Jackson sings a pretty mean baritone.

Dr. Carter performed my hip replacement back in 2018. I couldn’t be happier with the results. Best thing that I’ve ever had done. It gave me back my quality of life I was missing for many years. Thanks again Dr. Carter. You’re highly recommended.

I had a partial knee replacement on Feb. 11. Today I wrote this poem for Dr. Berend A Mile By: Moffatt Today, I jogged a mile. No big deal to most, but for me, It's been awhile. Today, I jogged a mile. 6 weeks ago, the replacement of my left knee took away my smile. Today, I jogged a mile. Recovery and Rehab are no fun but necessary or I end up in a pile. Today, I jogged a mile. Wouldn't it be great if my name was Kyle. Today, I jogged a mile. It was not fast. It was not pretty. But today, I jogged a mile. Thank you, Dr. Berend.

Dr Berend is the absolute best Orthopedic Surgeon anywhere for knee replacement surgery. His bedside manner inspires confidence. The staff that makes up his team is friendly and extremely efficient including his operating room team. I recommend him without any reservations.

It has been just over 7 years since Dr. Berend replaced my knee joint (total knee). I was in pain for many years before bringing myself to actually have the surgery. I must say without hesitation, the surgery has given me a whole new perspective on life. I have been active again just about every day (and my knee no longer chooses whether or not I am active). Being retired now for 2.5 yrs, my wife and I are a walking/hiking team (without the pain). I am so glad I had my knee replaced. Dr. Berend was amazing thru the whole process (before during and after). The entire staff was also a key part of a great team effort. My thanks to Dr. Berend and his team for doing such a great job. I am one satisfied patient. Thanks to all!!

hello, it's been over a year and a half since first knee replacement. A few months ago, had cyst pop up on right knee. Dr. Berend decided pretty quickly to go back in and remove problem with no issues. Dr. Berend has always been there for me through the whole process, I have had partial replacement on both knees, both are doing fine. Although I have tendency to over do it during the healing process, Dr. Berend has shown great patience with me. I appreciate everything the staff at Indy and Bloomington have done to take care of me. I believe it take special people to do what these folks have done to make peoples lives better. Thanks again, Russ

My experience with Dr. Lackey and his staff has been wonderful!! I had a knee surgery done by another place and ended up worse and not satisfied with the results. This motivated me to ask around for recommendations from other people and several (especially the people who were doing my therapy recommended Dr. Lackey, they said he was the best!). So long story short, 1 year later after my surgery and being in a special study I am totally happy with the surgery, experience, the study, Dr. Lackey and staff!! Best experience ever!! And doing great!!! Thank you
