    The best of the best. Amar did both of my knee replacements in 2004 and 2005 at Lenox Hill. I found he and his Staff to be courteous, knowledgeable and very professional. So much so that I sort him out once again in March 2017 to do my hip replacement at HSS rather than a doctor closer to home in NJ. I HAVE NOT BEEN DISAPPOINTED WITH MY DECISION. My remaining hip may need replacing sooner than later and I will return to the Ranawat practice.

    not pleased with lack of reading of record which i took long time to complete useless trip

    I met with Dr. Ranawat regarding treatment options for hip arthritis. I felt his answers to my questions were kurt, dismissive, and unsupported by factual information.
    in Morristown, NJ |
    A terrible doctor and extremely arrogant who tore my hip labrums during a physical exam and then tried to tell me I already had a tear when I used to walk limitless amounts. I went in for a right hip clicking that caused no pain but I have Ehlers Danlos and wanted to be diligent checking out body parts. He then tore my left hip labrum and I could not walk for 5 months. I will live with this forever and he should not be practicing medicine.

    He never mentioned a gluteus maximus tear prior to hip replacement surgery, only told me about reatachment of the muscle after surgery. Made no attempt to stablize re-attachment after surgery. Never found out if tear was present before surgery or done during surgery. Attachment did not hold and muscle atrophied. Didn't want to hear anything about complaints, just said there was nothing that could be done. Was walking better before hip replacement surgery than after.

    Dr. Amar Ranawat did a total R hip replacement. I read ALL the information sent to me ahead of time which answered most of my questions. At the time of my initial appointment, my concerns were addressed. I left scheduled for surgery and was confident that Dr. Ranawat was the best doctor for my health care needs. Surgery was very successful and I returned to work ahead of what was anticipated; I did arrange for transportation. I feel terrific! And have returned to a more active lifestyle!
    I am a 24 year old patient who was in need of a hip replacement due to congenital hip dysplasia when I was born. I have been a patient of the hospital for special surgery for 22 years. If you want the best surgeon, he is your doctor. He's not the friendliest Doctor I've seen, but he did an excellent job. 7 weeks later and I'm already back at the gym and I would never know I had a replacement.
