I received a recommendation for Rush from a neighbor while talking about joint replacement (Isn't that what ALL neighbors talk about?). After seeing two other Orthopedic surgeons, I decided to give Rush a call. I'm really glad I did! Other surgeons had suggested a TOTAL knee replacement but after taking a look at my x-rays, Dr. Karas felt that only a PARTIAL replacement was warranted. He really took the time to know me and answer all my questions and concerns so I went ahead with the surgery.
I don't like to use clichés but, to be completely honest, my only regret was not having gotten my knee replacement sooner. Dr Karas and his staff did a wonderful job on my knee back in September and the results were PERFECT!
Thanks Doc! *
Dr. Karas is so wonderful words can’t explain the appreciation I have for him and what he’s done for me as well as there staff they are so professional !!!*
Dr. Karas and his staff are always so friendly, thorough, and open in their discussion of options and opportunities available to me. *
Friendly and knowledgeable staff.Dr Karas put my mind at ease about a total knee replacement. Answered all my questions & addressed my concerns. Looking forward to my surgery & finally getting my life back!
Thank you Dr Karas & staff. *
They were all very professional and nice. They made
my decision to have surgery easy.*
Dr. Karas was terrific! Knowledgeable, sensitive, informative...I immediately felt at ease and felt confident in my receiving expert care. Staff was great, too. *
Dr. Karas replaced my left knee on 11/10/2020. I had an unexplained very rapid deterioration of my knee over an 18 month period. I live on the West Coast of the U.S. and was referred to Dr. Karas for his minimally invasive replacement. I was completely terrified of the pain of the knee replacement. I was pleasantly surprised. My pain was nothing compared to the pain I had the first day after arthroscopic surgery back home. This replacement was almost a breeze. I was able to bend the knee to 136 degrees after just 3 weeks (the goal is 130). I walked almost 3 miles just 2 weeks after surgery. Dr. Karas has an amazing bed side personality. He is an extremely sincere, genuine and caring person. This is coming from someone who is genuine and sincere to a fault. I'd rather be rude than phony. Dr. Karas is the complete package. He's very talented and smart and is amazingly nice person. You don't even have to think twice if you're in need of a knee replacement. Dr. Karas and his team will take excellent care of you. They're very attentive to your needs.*
I had my hip replacement surgery. Dr. Vasili Karas and his team are outstanding. I have an excellent experience. I appreciate an individual approach and professionalism. I would recommend them highly. *

Very happy with the testing, explanations and recommended treatments.
Dr. Was very personable and showed great interest in listening to my complaints and involved me in deciding the best Theraphy.
Would definitely recommend Midwest Orthopedic, especially Dr. Karas.*
Dr. Karas answered all questions and explained things very clearly. I appreciated his insight very much.*
He gave me and my husband our quality of life back my knees and my husband’s hip the best doctor hands down he truly cares about his patients *
Very thorough and knowledgeable. *
Dr. K is such a nice man. He gave me a lot
of peace about my knee replacement surgery. His staff rocks too. *
Dr. Karas and his Team provide the upmost amount of care, attention and empathy whilst also preparing you for your surgery. They all do whatever they can to prepare you for your surgery Pre/Post Op. I'm very confident in the "Teams" collective capabilities for my upcoming surgery.*
I came to Dr. Karas's office for a 2nd opinion on hip replacement. He took the time to answer all our questions and describe the procedure he will be using and why.*
Dr Karas is the consummate professional, friendly attentive and very knowledgeable. His staff and Resident Dr. was also amazing. Highly recommend him. *
Safe, all staff gave good instructions and identified themself. All attempted to make you comfortable.Lots of take home to clarify what had been Appreciate that X-ray was done there and before seeing doctor and also registration. Walking is difficult and walking blocks to accomplish each task in the Rush facility would have been painful.
Dr. Karas gave me confidence that I will greatly benefit from this surgery.*
After seeing 3 chiropractors for my leg, the third strongly suggested I see an orthopedic Dr. and He recommended Dr. Karas. I just had a total hip replacement by Dr. Karas on Thursday 10/1. I still have to heal and do therapy but that pain I lived with for 3 years is gone ! Dr. Karas and his team are absolutely the most professional, precise and friendly people ever! Dr. Karas will be my recommendation to anyone always !*
Everything is runs like well oiled machine. Top notch personal. *
