    I was walking in 2014 but with considerable knee pain. Was advised hip surgery was needed. Hip surgery was done, twice in August 2014, (by this Dr.) both ops within 48 hrs of each other, again in June 2015 (2015 was complete hip revision by a different surgeon after a 2nd opinion was asked for) all on the same hip. It's now 2016 and I still cannot walk, lay flat without back pain, wheelchair & house bound, have financial hardship & low to no quality of life. Would you recommend this Dr.?
