Honest, upstanding surgeon who is very skilled and has assembled an amazing team. When things get rocky he hangs in there with you. Some other reviewers seem to be projecting disappointment for rough recovery courses on Dr. Dearborn himself. My advice would be to go into surgery with realistic expectations. Talk to Dearborn or someone that you can trust if something goes sideways.
Eight months ago, I had a double knee replacement after 6 years of intense knee pain. Life is so good now thanks to my new knees and the very professional and capable hands of Dr. Sah! He is a game changer! The whole team affiliated with Dr. Sah made the whole experience very pleasant. My only regret is that I waited so long. A HEARTFELT thanks to Dr Sah and crew for giving me my strong and pain free legs back!
Dr. Dearborn performed a knee replacement on my right leg. I had nothing but extreme pain, swelling and after a year of agony I was forced to have the knee Dr. Dearborn put in replaced. He was attentive before my surgery but as soon as I had a problem he refused to see me and wanted me to speak only to his P.A. I would NEVER recommend him to anyone. When I finally did get to see him he literally just shrugged his shoulders and said "It happens in 5% of cases" and walked out of the room!
Conduits for miracles from heaven that give us our lives back. That’s how I feel about Dr. John Dearborn & his exceptional staff at the Institute for Joint Restoration after two hip joint replacements within 8 weeks of each other in July & September of 2015. He was relaxed, unhurried & personally wrote down all the answers to my questions on the list I handed him. I am now well on my way to walking 3 miles in 45 minutes – a perfect cardio work-out. He said I can dance again & I intend to!
It’s been over a year since I’ve had two knee replacement surgeries. I just cannot give Dr. Sah enough praise. I’m so happy not to have any more pain. I can get up from a chair, walk, dance and climb stairs.
I’m looking forward to my 80th birthday next year with great knees.
I’m a busy freelance writer for two news agencies, and can keep up with everything they give me to do.
Whoopeee! Hope you can hear that!!!
I moved here from Houston Texas and shortly after getting here started having hip pain. I looked up Dr Sah and made an appointment, and started an unbelievable relationship. He told me that my hip was history and needed to be replaced. We scheduled it, I had the surgery and his aftercare is second to none. I have never met a more caring, and dedicated Dr. It's been 5 months and I feel as if I never had a hip problem. I highly recommend Dr. Sah, and the IFJR YOU CANT GO WRONG.
Don't use this doctor! He never checked on me once after my surgery. . After Dr. Dearborn had performed the surgery he kept referring me to his P/A. I was in so much pain, and finally another physician discovered the joint had come loose and a year later I had to have the knee replacement replaced again! It was a very painful experience. I would not recommend this Doctor to anyone!
When his surgeries go wrong, he has no compassion or follow up with his patients.
We have intentionally limited our focus to the surgical treatment of hip and knee arthritis, in order to offer the highest level of care possible. In addition to total hip, total knee and partial knee replacement surgery, we also perform more complex revision procedures.
As specialists, we are able to approach patient care with more attention to detail. We offer state-of-the-art joint replacement surgery, but endeavor to deliver excellent results in a highly personal way. We care for people, not just their arthritic hips and knees. Our work is part of our faith-based ministry.
In 1999, we partnered with the Washington Hospital Healthcare System to create the Center for Joint Replacement, an outcomes-based, comprehensive joint replacement program that has been honored by Healthgrades, PRC and other independent rating agencies.
