in Clarence, NY |
Dr. McGrath did a total anterior hip replacement on me in May 2015. I am 74 years old. It was done at Buffalo General Hospital in Buffalo New York. I recovered very rapidly. He is extremely approachable as is his staff. I cannot imagine getting better care from anyone or at any other facility.
in Lockport, NY |
He performed a bi-lateral core decompression as a first less invasive procedure and then when that failed he performed a bi-lateral hip resurfacing using Bi-Med. This was a FDA study at that time.
