What People Say About Dr. Anton Plakseychuk, MD

I had hip replacement surgery with Dr. Plakseychuk in September of 2017. He is a rather dry and less than warm man. After the surgery he showed little interest in the pace or quality of my recovery or the impact that my special needs might have on my recovery. He allocated a ridiculously brief 10 minutes or so of time with me in my follow up appointments and was inconsistent in his responses and at one point appears to have even lied to me about the facts. I do not recommend using him.

His strength is NOT in Glute Med Tendinopathy (GMT), a condition which is often misdiagnosed as Trochanteric Bursitis.

Dr. P replaced both of my knees. My left on December 21, 2017 and my right on May 15 this year. Prior to surgery my life consisted of my bed, bathroom and recliner. I wasn't able to walk to the mailbox. I was in constant pain. I'm now PAIN FREE. I walk as much as I wish. I can't say enough about Dr. Plakseychuk and the Bone and Joint center at Magee Womens' Center. He is truly a gifted surgeon.

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.
