As I sit here, 4 years after my knee replacement with an ice bag on my knee, I wonder how such a doctor can still practice. I have had constant problems and pain since my surgery, have seen 3 other surgeons since, and found out, incredulously, that Dr. Powell put in the WRONG SIZE - it's too large for me! How does that happen?? A second surgery won't help me so here I sit. Since I am only 60 now, I have been advised, by a different, more trusted, and now my new and lovely Doctor, to wait. DO NOT trust Dr. Powell with your knee replacement. I hear he knows how to do hips but he certainly does not know knees. I agree with everyone's assessment with Colleen. She was fantastic and the only positive part of my whole experience. I'm going to get some more ice now. :(. Thanks a lot Dr. Powell - 4 years later and my knee is no better. Shame on you.

Dr Powell operated on my left knee about 6 years ago and it is worse than before. My leg is not straight and hurts continually. A lot of days I can barely walk. I had no physio afterwords, six weeks after my surgery my knee gave out and I fell down a cement stair. I was told not to worry about it. Never was called for a follow up. Went to another surgeon and they say the knee is is in such terrible shape there is nothing they can do.

I have had two hip resurfacing operations with Dr Powell and his team in the past 11 years. The results have been outstanding and I cannot recommend Dr Powell and his team any higher! The only less than stellar rating was for punctuality and that is only because in many instances Dr Powell operates in the AM and has his cast clinics and or consultations in the afternoons and as a result he may be late ( somewhat) In each instance he apologised immediately and took the time to answer any questions I had fully. I cannot believe that anyone would give him a less than stellar rating... Colleen (his case manager) was outstanding in handling my insurance issues and answering any per surgical inquiries...Tanya (his scheduling manager) was excellent in answering questions and preparing me for what I needed to know on day of procedures...Dr Powell even came to check on me on a Saturday , which I found surprising.I found he and his team highly knowledgeable, caring , and a pleasure to deal with...outstanding experience!!!!

Dr Powell replaced my left hip. He gave me my life back. I suffered for 5 years before finally finding a surgeon to help me. Now I'm biking with my grandkids. Dr Powell is number one in my books.

So the hip works great! That's the good news. The bad news is, I now have a 1.8 cm leg length discrepancy which has caused me no end of difficulty as well as thousands spent on special shoes and lifts. I have regular disputes with shoemakers as part of my life now. Thanks, Dr. Powell.

He must be getting old, had hip surgery performed and its given me nothing but problems. Saw another ortho. in the USA, the part was faulty but he did not noticed, did not take responibility. Apparently, I hear, NOT his first time. PR very good, I was referred.

From the first time I met Dr Powell; I was inspired with confidence. Though I knew he had an extremely busy practice, he made me feel I was the only one who mattered. He focused, on point , listens, allows you the opportunity to ask questions and very informative. I could not imagine having a better experience than Dr, Jim Powell. Equally, his assistants are amazing.

Dr Powell has operated on me 3 times, once for a major leg injury with multiple fractures and massive lacerations and twice for knee replacements. I had outstanding outcomes from all three operations and the following rehabilitation and i have an excellent quality of life. I understand that not all outcomes may be perfect given the degree of injury that may occur and the limitations of medical treatment. Dr Powell was always available and very helpful. He made me aware of the risks and warned that a complete recovery was not guaranteed every time. I have friends in the medical community who recommended him, told me that he had the highest number of operating hours in the city and was the go to guy for horrific injuries that other surgeons were reluctant to take. Some appointments were punctual, some were a little late. I always took a book in case he got behind or tied up. Colleen was wonderful. I am a little taken aback by the vitriol of some of the other reviewers as my perceptions were so different from their's .
