Very, very satisfied with my total hip replacement surgery! I highly recommend Dr Walz and his staff for surgery. I am very happy that someone referred me to him! I am very pleased with everything from the first office visit, through the surgery, time in the hospital, and post-op visit. No complaints from me!
If you are looking for the best look no further! Dr Walz did hip replacement surgery on me last month. I have never had such a caring surgeon before. My quality of life was nothing and now I have hope of a great pain free life! I owe it all to Dr Bradley Walz. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Dr. Walz repaired my rotator cuff. He was always willing to listen, laid out options, he and his staff were very friendly. I would go to him for care or refer anyone one he was great!

Dr. Walz took a challenging situation on my THR and put forth a lot of thought, but more importantly, created a positive outcome. A very kind man that does the extras that maybe some other Drs. don't take the time. Anterior THR is his method, with recovery being a breeze. Minimal pain after a month, and walking with little use of any aid.

Dr Walz performed a total knee replacement for me 5/5/15. One year later I can do things I haven't been able to do in 30 years. After a lifetime of pain from many sports injuries I finally was forced to have my knee replaced. Dr Walz and his staff were able to answer all of my pre operation questions and make me feel totally at ease with my decision to have major surgery. Mercy Orthopedic Hospital is truly state of the art. I would recommend Dr. Walz over any doctor I have ever gone to.

Dr. Walz and his staff provided a superior experience in replacing not one, but both of my hips 3 years apart. When I woke up in the recovery room on the first surgery the pain that i had been experiencing was gone. That afternoon i was walking, climbing stairs without any pain at all. I had surgery on Wednesday morning the 27th of April, for the second surgery with the same results. I was released from the hospital the following afternoon. Dr. Walz and his staff are all patient oriented.

All aspects-superb. Dr. Walz & staff: personable, compassionate, insightful, skilled. Diagnosis & options - thorough; scheduling - accommodating/effortless; pre-op exam - thorough & reassuring; recovery - rapid and life-changing; facility - state-of-the-art (from accommodating my dietary needs to personable and extensive visit to my room by hospital pharmacist, all was comfortable and thorough. I feel inadequate in expressing high satisfaction & appreciation for Dr. Walz and all associated.
I am so happy I was referred to Dr Walz for my hip replacement surgery. He is a very caring doctor and truly concerned about his patients. I am so pleased with how well, and how quickly, I recovered from the surgery. Dr Walz has a fantastic staff and nurses at the hospital were equally concerned about my comfort and meeting my every need. I highly recommend this doctor and this hospital. Thank you for everything.

AMAZING!!! I was in a lot of pain prior to my total hip replacement. However, after surgery, I had no pain, there was some discomfort but no pain, which was a wonderful relief! Dr Walz and his team are awesome. I received excellent care in the hospital and everyone was very happy and helpful -- all the way from the personal care assistants to the registered nurses. With this procedure, my surgery and recovery has been a pleasant experience!

I found Dr. Walz to be extremely professional as well as having extremely good social skills; he is virtually without ego as opposed to the specialist that have to treat you like they are doing you a favor to be in the same room with you. He and his staff replaced my right hip and I could not be happier. I would highly recommend him to my friends and family or anyone who is considering having hip surgery.

I was very pleased with the entire experience of having Dr. Walz replace my left knee. He and his team made sure that I was well taken care of and I received the best care in a hospital that I have ever experienced. My pain level was kept to a minimum and the rehab went better than I had expected. I would highly recommend Dr. Walz and his staff to anyone needing a knee replacement!
