He did laparoscopic surgery on my right meniscus. Explained everything from my first appointment to the surgery itself till the finale stitch removal. Was totally up front on what the process was. Very friendly and thorough. Eventually I will need knee replacement. I would definitely choose him. Great staff too.

Dr. Kristoferson is the best

My primary doctors office recommended I see an orthopedic surgeon due to the hip MRI showing bone on bone in that joint. I was having significant pain and had to use a walker just to get around. As a retired RN I was very careful to talk with others in the medical field to find out who has the best outcomes for hip surgery here in Denton. Dr. Kristoferson was my final choice. He is very thorough in making sure you are ready to tolerate surgery. The surgeon, his office staff and the hospital all worked together to coordinate my procedure and care post operatively. It has been 5 weeks since getting the Total Hip Replacement and I must say I couldn't be happier. No more pain and will be cane free within a week or two. With confidence, I would recommend Dr. Kristoferson to anyone needing hip surgery

Pathology Assitant

My family has trusted Dr. Kristoferson since he first opened his practice. We fully trust his medical expertise. I wouldn't trust any other orthopedic in the area with my family or friends. He has operated on many family members as well as friends and they have all been pleased with the success of their surgeries. He is considerate, patient, and knowledgeable with his speciality. He has the most amazing staff and ANY time I have needed their assistance they were very friendly and quick to help. The entire group is very caring and compassionate. The BEST orthopedic group around hands down. I wish I had the option to give all questions a five star rating. Four isn't enough!

Workers Comp Claiments BEWARE!!!!

If you are a patient whose injuries are NOT based on workers compensation, I would recommend Dr. Kristoferson. However, if your injuries are due to a workers compensation claim...DO NOT USE DR. KRISTOFERSON!!! HIS AIM IS TO BENEFIT YOUR WORK COMP CARRIER. If you have any possibility of using another provider, do it!
