I love State College UOC and especially Dr. Kenneth Cherry. He is an excellent surgeon. He replaced my left hip. I have had excellent results after this surgery. Very recently, I visited his office concerning an issue with my right leg and knee. He advised me on the care that I needed and how to proceed going forward.

Dr. Cherry replaced my knee and hip. Total replacement on both. I am very satisfied with the work and care he has provided me. His rehab staff is very friendly and very good at what they do. They got me on the road to recovery quickly and pain free. I can not speak highly enough about Dr.Cherry and his staff. Highly recomend his service to all who will listen.
