I have a very complicated hip surgery history and traveled from Oklahoma to Cleveland clinic, based on the video Dr. Higuera made. I felt that he addressed the whole person, not just my hip. He attempted the most conservative procedures, but what was most appropriate for my specific situation. He is highly talented and very knowledgeable in orthopedic conditions. I would highly recommend him as a qualified surgeon.

My hip replacement went very well. Dr. Higuera and his staff explained everything thoroughly. I had no questions about the procedure or recovery. Recovery has been very smooth so far and I find myself wanting to move on more quickly than recommended.

This is an unsolicited review and evaluation of Dr Carlos Hjguera regarding my recent hip replacement on March 10, 2017. In summary, my exposure and satisfaction has been excellent and beyond my expectation. I like him! His genuine involvement in my physical and mental concerns put me completely at ease and convinced me he is the exact physician I can trust. I embraced the commitment and process of rapid home recovery and Dr Higuera revealed, instructed, and tracked my progress to success.
