Woodland Hills, CA |
Made it hurt worse then it was before. Had to have metal yanked out and re-done 5 months later.
in Calabasas, CA |
It's now two weeks and two days after Dr. Bengs performed a total hip replacement on my right hip. It could not -- in any possible way -- have gone better. No pain since the surgery. Minimal bruising and swelling. And I"m writing this after just getting back from a 3 mile, 1000' gain hike with the dogs up the mountain I live on. It's the best hike I've had in seven years or so , with no pain or hesitation. I am one happy camper. Fantastic surgeon! My life is back.

I had severe arthritis in my left hip and could not walk without the assistance of a cain. My entire leg and foot muscles had atrophied. Very glad I was referred to Dr Bengs. He performed a total hip replacement about 3 and a half months ago. He was great at explaining the procedure and the prognosis. With the help of physical therapy I am continuing to regain the strength and flexibility in my left leg and hip. I am up to walking about a mile a day without assistance, pain free.
in Moreno Valley, CA |
I had both of my Hips totally replaced by Dr. Bengs in the last 4 months of 2012. After physical therapy I started walking a 100 yards a day, I am up to 2 miles a day at 77 years of age. He is a outstanding surgeon. When I first saw Dr. Bengs, both of my Hips had severe osteoarthritis, I could hardly walk, now I feel great.
in Los Angeles, CA |
Very knowlegable and easy to convers with. Dr Bengs evaluated my troubled left knee and recommended an injection procedure which relieved pain and growing discomfort that I had for several months previously. I was fearing the worst, as I already had two hip replacemens, and was not looking forward to a knee replacement, but Dr Bengs thought I was a candidate for an alternative procedure which was quick, easy and almost painless. I would recommend him to anyone seeking surgical alternatives.
in Santa Monica, CA |
Excellent Surgeon. Very knowledgeable and confident. Replaced my left knee using the latest technology. Was able to precisely align the bone cuts and implant to exactly match my other good knee. If I or anyone close to me needs joint replacement my first and only recommendation would be Dr. Bengs.
