Excellent results from anterior hip replacement procedure. Follow the directions provided and outcome is very good. Only concern I had is at 3 week follow up I did not see doctor but rather a physician assistant. I would have preferred to see the doctor at this point. Otherwise, staff and doctor provided great service and worth a future recommendation to someone needing same type of service.

Excellent surgeon who was recommended to me by another excellent surgeon. Very personable. His techniques are state of the art. Others had turned me down, but he fixed my hip. I had a total hip replacement. I will always be grateful to him.

Several people referred me to Dr Costa & had nothing but praise! I thought I need to meet this Rock star!!! I met him , he made me laugh and explained how he does his total knee replacements with the muscle sparing technique . I left and booked my surgery! I had surgery on 1/11/19 and today is 1/21/19! He told me I would do stairs immediately! I did! Been walking w/o aide since Wed. I walked into OT today & they were blown away! No one could believe I was 10 days post-op! Just the best

If I could give Dr.Anthony Costa 100 stars I would. He not only rebuilt my left hip but lengthened my leg(prior to this I had to wear 4 lifts in my left shoe).He did it all in one surgery! Before I saw Dr.Costa, I wasn't able to have a life,I was simply existing, as I could barely walk.Finding Dr.Costa was like a miracle for me.And his way of hip replacement requires NO restrictions at all.My legs are now the same length & I can dance!I would refer anyone to him and already have. I feel Blessed.

Dr. Costa is an excellent surgeon. I put off knee replacement for years, finally had to have it done and am so sorry I waited so long. I literally can do anything I want. The knee, and leg, are so strong. I had forgotten what it was like to feel secure. I will be doing my other knee with him.

Dr. Costa performed bilateral total hip replacement surgery on me in January of 2018. I am back to swimming an hour straight 5 days a week. On vacation in May 2018, I climbed to the top of Diamond Head, on Oahu Hawaii, easily with no pain. Prior to surgery, I had stopped climbing up it because it had become too painful. I also played golf almost every day for 2/12 weeks on vacation totally pain-free and I am driving the ball better than ever. He has given me my very active life back.

My experience with Dr. Costa was amazing! He replaced my left hip in February and three months later I am playing pickleball for 2 to 3 hours at a time without any pain. I feel like I am moving like a teenager. I had it done at Shrewsbury Surgery Center, went home that day, a PT came to my house that afternoon and helped me walk upstairs to my bedroom. Three days later I was walking without any assistance . The hardest thing was holding back on doing some activities, because I felt so great!

I had read a lot of great reviews, but had to meet him for myself. I quickly came to realize that he was very kind, compassionate, and knowledgeable. I felt that I was in great hands and he had a great plan for my case. I needed both hips replaced, and the plan was to do them both at the same time as all indicators or positive for me to have this done. The surgery huge success, and I know that I picked the right surgeon! It's amazing team that they have there!

Dr Costa is everything a physician should be - attentive, skilled, very knowledgeable but able and patient enough to explain everything and answer any question. He recommended that I have hip replacement surgery, was able to minimize my discomfort prior to the surgery, and provided excellent follow on care. I enjoyed a quick and complete recovery. He recommends that I have surgery on the other hip and I trust his judgment. I do not look forward to surgery, but do look forward to the result.

I was experiencing terrible left hip pain. I was told how excellent of a surgeon and how wonderful Dr. Costa was so I went for a consultation. His staff was so friendly and after X-rays were taken, I got to meet him. He made me feel so at ease during the consult and went over my X-rays that revealed my left hip joint was totally gone. So Dr. Costa recommended a total hip replacement using the anterior approach. I had the surgery and it was so successful! I was walking the same day of surgery!

The results of the surgery by Dr Costa on my knee were above and beyond my expectations, notably in terms of quality of recovery and minimization of pain. My physical therapists all reflect that their experiences with myself and other Dr Costa patients have been well above average. Also: he obviously knows what he is doing, and explains options well. He is clear about trade-offs, but not pushy. Well run operation. Busy, of course, as the good ones are, so do not procrastinate to book.

I feel extremely fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Anthony Costa. I had an anterior total hip replacement (right side) on September 15, 2017. Less than two weeks have passed and I am amazed at the amount of progress I have made! Dr. Costa is very easy to talk with and I felt totally confident after my meetings with him prior to the surgery. He is an extremely skilled surgeon and I would not hesitate to recommend him.

My father needed hip replacement surgery and he went to Dr. Costa since he was recommended by my aunt, my dad's sister. She had both her hips replaced at the same time by Dr. Costa. Anyway, Dr. Costa did an amazing job. He put my Dad's concerns at easy about the surgery. And the fact that Dr. Costa replaces the hip through the front, my Dad had very few restrictions and literally walked into his room and he was doing great from then on. I went with my dad to every office visit.
