We came from Louisiana to have the surgery so our first apt with Dr. Kelly was 2 days before surgery. I had researched and requested him because of his experience with the Nuss procedure. Dr. Kelly has a calm demeaner, he's kind, very receptive to any questions/concerns, and extremely thorough! I loved that he explained everything and was very honest about the severity of the surgery but he also armed us with the knowledge for the best possible outcome. My sons main concern was pain and Dr. Kelly explained to him that pain control was his top priority- And he did an excellent job! As a nurse, I wanted the best surgeon for my sons surgery- he had no complications during or after the surgery and his recovery has been so fast- he even forgets he has the bar in! Thank God for Dr. Kelly!
