Dr. Gilbert performed hip replacement surgery on me and the outcome has been even better than I expected. No complications or subsequent pain. Not only was he highly competent, but he was patient with my questions and had an easy, friendly manner. His staff was great too, as were the physical therapists at EmergeOrtho. All in all -- just a terrific job. I highly recommend Dr. Gilbert.

Dr. Gilbert gave me a full hip replacement. I did my homework, getting 5 opinions before deciding on Dr. Gilbert. I wanted a reputable doctor with 5-star reviews, expertise specific to hips, lots of experience and a good bedside manner. I could check all the boxes with Dr. Gilbert. He also takes appointments in Cary, Apex, Raleigh and other local areas. One last comment, the practice handled all the billing well and I didn’t feel like I was ripped off. He uses a private hospital that provided AMAZING care and follow up.

Dr. Gilbert is the best! My hip replacement was so well done, it was hard to remember that it was major surgery! I was able to schedule the procedure within a week, was using a walker within the same day, and did not need a cane after day 10. The hospital staff was caring, kind and professional. Given the opportunity, I’d shout the merits of Dr Gilbert, his PA, Al, and his staff from the rooftops!

I recommend Dr. Gilbert to all people who need a hip replacement. I have had both hips replaced by Dr. Gilbert and I feel like a new person. I have had no pain like I did before. In fact I just had my check up for my left hip which was replaced 8/2020 and I feel great & doing great! I feel like a new person! Dr. Gilbert explains everything & has a very positive attitude that gives you confidence & sets you at ease. Thank you !

Dr Gilbert had replaced my left hip 4 years ago. It healed perfectly. He replaced my right knee this week on Monday and I am walking with no pain, 3 days later, on Thursday. I had been told by others that my knee repair would hurt more than my hip. I have very little pain. I have much less pain after 3 days than I had before the surgery. The staff members at Rex Hospital were great. Dr. Gilbert has extensive experience with these joints. I am quite surprised that I feel this great so soon. I went to my first PT today and the staff said I was progressing very quickly. I will say that I have been working out in my gym and also doing yoga at home for the past two years. I can’t overstate the importance of strengthening your core and all of your muscles. I believe that this is contributing to my recovery. Dr. Gilbert performed a wonderful repair on my knee. I highly recommend that you schedule an appointment with him and get your sore joints cared for by him and his team.

Televisit. I understand that a doctor's time is valuable, but a $50 co-pay for a one-minute call seems a bit much, especially when Humana had suspended co-pays on in-person visits. That's my complaint for the day ... wouldn't even think about using anyone other than Dr. Gilbert! I'm 70 with two good knees after a lifetime of playing ball ... what else can I say!?

On 6/17/20,Dr. Gilbert performed a right hip replacement for me which has improved the quality of my life dramatically. Besides carrying out tasks of every day life, I now can walk/hike 4-5 miles daily... with zero pain. If you are in need of this type of surgery, I highly recommend Dr. Gilbert. He can be described as brilliant, confident and compassionate. Not only is Dr. Gilbert a gifted surgeon, he is a great human being.
