    My full hip replacement experience in the hospital was extremely positive. I especially appreciated the care with which infection is minimized. The protocol that I followed before entering the hospital and the precautions in the O.R. made me feel extremely comfortable with the surgery. The 6th floor unit is great. Nursing care was excellent as was the post-op home care. He also replaced both of my husband's knees prior to my surgery with great results.
