  • Knee Replacement

“Dear Dr. Mesko:

You'll be my hero forever. You gave me my two brand new knees; the left one on 04/07/11 and the right one on 11/19/12. In both surgeries I was able to go home the day after the surgery. I cameback to work on full duties only two months after each surgery. No pain, no disconfort feeling like an athlete. This is so perfect. All my recognition and gratitude to you Dr. Mesko for your amazing skills and knowledge as a Surgeon. My recognition and gratitude as well to all the medical personnel in the hospital and all the staff in your office.

A very grateful patient.”


  • Hip Surgery

“I came to Dr. Taunt by referral from the surgeon who did my original surgery some 11 months before. In the interim period I had developed multiple infections and had 9 additional surgeries involving removal of the first hip and replacement with spacers. I make the majority of my living traveling around the world covering wars and conflicts as a freelance journalist. As I spent the majority of last summer in a wheelchair I thought my active career was over. Dr. Taunt reviewed my case and after consulting my previous surgeons, created an immediate plan of treatment. From day one he projected competence and confidence in his abilitiy to help me. And he did... I am now approaching 3 months post surgery. I am back to full weight-lifting, including leg presses. I leave in 4 days for another assignment in the Congo. Dr. Taunt and his amazing staff provided complete care consistent with the highest professional and ethical standards... I could not be more impressed.”


  • Knee Surgery

“Dr. Taunt Did a great job on my knee. Thank you Dr. taunt I will recomend you to anybody that has problems.”


  • Total Hip Replacement

“I just want to thank Dr. Cochran for the Total Hip Replacement I received in December 2010. I found out in November of 2010 that my company was switching our insurance plan and after going online I found out Dr. Cochran wouldn't be in network when changes went into effect on January 1, 2011. I immediately called to see if I could get my surgery done before the end of the year. They were able to get me in on December 22. After the surgery everyone I talked to whether it be a nurse, a doctor, physical therapist, etc...had nothing but good things to say when I told them that it was Dr. Cochran that performed my surgery. When you get something like this done you want to be sure that it is done right. You can put your mind at ease if you are lucky enough to have Dr. Jason Cochran as your surgeon. I needed the other hip replaced as well and instead of finding someone new due to the insurance change, I have waited three years until my company finally offered different coverage so I can go back to someone I trust to get it done right. Thank you and your staff for your excellent work.”


  • Surgical Treatment

“Thank You very much Pain Free everyday every minute. God Bless all of you.”


  • Total Hip Replacement

“I had a total hip replacement on Nov. 15, 2013 and I'm already back to work full force! Dr. Taunt did my surgery and I can't wait to get the other one done...the pain was gone instantly after surgery and I was at the point I could not put any pressure on my leg. Dr. Taunt did an amazing job and I would not hesitate to send anyone to him in the future.”


  • Total Hip Replacement

“Dr. Mesko did a total right hip for me less than 6 months ago. I have been able to return to snowboarding, surfing and kiteboarding over the last 10 days. I am really grateful for the care I received, and the ability to enjoy these things I love without pain.”

  • Partial Knee Replacement

“It's been one year that Dr. Cochran did my partial knee replacement. I struggled for many years with knee pain and it got to the point that I was limited as to what I could do. Going up and down stairs was becoming almost impossible so I knew it was time for surgery. Without Dr. Cochran's expertise, I would not be where I am now. I've been pain free and feel awesome. Six weeks after my knee replacement, I was back to Spinning, walking and yoga! Six months after surgery, my husband and I hiked the Smoky Mountains daily anywhere from 6-8 hours of hiking a day plus biking. I had no pain. I highly recommend Dr. Cochran and his awesome staff!”
