Amazing Dr!
in Des Moines, IA |
My significant other was a stage IV prostate cancer patient. With weakened bones from the cancer and treatments, he fell and fractured his hip. Dr. Nwosa performed a partial hip replacement on that hip. The entire experience, especially given my S.O.'s condition, was wonderful. . . Dr. Nwosa was caring and very present before, during and after the surgery. He personally checked back on the healing progress while in the hospital. Highly recommended.

This doctor is a gentle, caring, EXCELLENT Physician. I was in an accident in November of 2015,suffering a crushed pelvis. Between him and God, I was put back together and am healthy and can do almost anything I did before. I expect with a little more healing and strengthening I will be able to do anything. I was blessed to have such a wonderful doctor. I will be forever grateful.
