Excellent diagnosis and results of surgery.

I saw Dr. Plakseychuk on November 30th 2016 for my left hip and he explained what he would be doing to replace the hip. Had the surgery on December 29th 2016 and I have to say that I am not surprised at how much better I am doing ! I am now walking in regular tennis shoes, I had a 1 1/2 inch lift on my left shoe and he said he would lengthen the leg to be near what the right one is and he did it ! I am sooooo glad to have found this great surgeon ! I use crutches but may lose them too.

Amazing experience. Received a hip replacement less than 3 weeks ago. I'm already walking, driving, and even doing some things I could not do right before the surgery. That's not to say it was all trivial - the first week was pretty rough. But then each day got better and better. Dr. Plakseychuk uses the anterior approach, so there are virtually no limitations on movement when you leave the hospital. Highly recommended.
