WHAT OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING
  • Dr Elsharkawy and his staff are always extremely professional as well as being very thorough and efficient! Yesterday Taylor was my nurse and he is amazing! He covered every possible piece of info I needed post-op so thoroughly. I couldn’t ask any questions as he covered them all before I had a chance to ask :)
    Additionally, Dr Elsharkawy has a wonderful “bedside manner”. He’s always so patient and grateful to see me, he’s very humble. He has ensured I’ve been well taken care of every step of the way via post op of my left knee replacement. So, in about three weeks he’ll replace my right knee next... Looking forward to continued wonderful care! ~ J G ~

  • Dr. Elsharkawy did a wonderful job! He replaced one of my knees and six weeks later he replaced my other knee. He was very thorough in explaining the procedure and the process. I am so grateful that I found Dr. Elsharkawy. I had reverted confidence in him. Things happened just like he said they would. My secret to successful knee replacements was, first of all, choosing Dr. Elsharkawy, and secondly, doing exactly what he and his staff said to do for rehab. I highly recommend Dr. Elsharkawy at Texas Joint Replacement Center at 6020 W. Parker Rd.~ M D ~

  • I recommend Dr. Karim Elsharkawy as a competent and caring physician. I had severe hip pain from a bad fall a year earlier causing a broken hip and arm. Another doctor repaired my hip with a plate and screws, but I developed AVN causing my hip bone to die and collapse. The hardware painfully protruded into the socket. Dr. Elsharkawy gave me hope and successfully removed the old hardware and gave me a brand new hip. I now walk with no pain! I thank God for Dr. Elsharkawy and his wonderful staff.~ C H, McKinney, TX ~
