I made an appointment with Dr. Loucks office for October of this year. My oldest daughter saw to getting me there on time as we live over two hours away. After finding the office I was greeted with , compassionate desk employees as well as the nursing staff placing me in the examining room. I had about four x-rays taken and then spoke with Dr. Loucks about my situation. I really want this Dr. to perform my hip replacement. The next day I received an e-mail that he not in my insurance network

This was my second hip replacement. The first by another doctor a few years ago required me to be out of work for 3 weeks. The one accomplished by Dr. Loucks required me to be out of work for 4 days and no more than Tylenol for pain relief. I'll let Dr. Loucks explain the benefits of an anterior incision but to me it was a minor miracle.

I recommend Dr. Loucks and Peak Orthopeds to everyone I hear talking about hip problems. I have had the best experience and care from the entire staff here, and my hip replacement has been amazing for me ! 7 weeks out and looking forward to skiing soon :) They are the best !

I went to Dr. Loucks for a work injury. His recommendation was for a total knee replacement. Somehow he told my work that my knee was fine and had no lifting restrictions. He attempted to fix this error and sent the SAME information to my school. (I work with special needs heros.) Now I have a knee that needs a total knee replacement, but am being told I should have no mobility issues. See my review of McPherson. This is a systemic issue within Peak Ortho and do not use them.

This is my second total knee replacement by Dr Loucks and both were great. He has always listened to any comments or questions and provided me with the information I felt I needed. Would most definitely recommend to friends and co-workers.

Dr. Loucks is an extremely knowledgeable and caring surgeon. After experiencing severe osteoarthritis in my right hip at age 62, I met with Dr. Loucks and he performed the Anterior Minimally Invasive Hip Replacement surgery. The results were and still are amazing! Minor pain the day after surgery and on my way to a speedy recovery, and soon back to an active and physical lifestyle. Dr. Loucks takes the time to explain the process and what to expect in the rehabilitation phase. Thank you!
in Denver, CO |
He was amazing! Diagnosed my back issues and fixed my hip. Since my hip replacement, no pain either in the hip or the back. I am thoroughly pleased. I was rather nervous before the surger since I understood what was involved, , but have had no discomfort since and I am extremely active. I am able to do everything that I could before all of the pain started. I am walking straight again.
in Alberta, Canada |
Dr. Loucks is very talented and completely approachable. He performed a THR after a bike accident. He followed up with me and genuinely was concerned with my progress. The clinic is pleasant and efficient. The cost for the surgery was very reasonable. I am very thankful and recommend him to anyone considering this procedure and especially to fellow Canadians. At 7 weeks I am pain free, take stairs two at a time, and bike every day. I almost where I was before my accident.
in Centennial, CO |
Ten weeks ago, I had my left hip replaced by Dr. Loucks. The results are miraculous. I am pain-free and able to resume the activities that I love like walking, hiking, and dancing. Most importantly, I will be able to continue my profession as a chiropractor. Dr. Loucks' approach to anterior hip replacement is truly minimally invasive. No muscles are cut, so the healing process is very quick. The only rehabilitation that I needed was to walk. He is the best!
in Littleton, CO |
I have been an active runner, climber, skier, and bike rider and had my right hip replaced in late November 2015 by Dr. Craig Loucks. My surgery was performed in the morning and I has home watching the nightly news the same day. Now at two months, my hip is totally functional in all active sports except running and largely pain free. Not only is my new hip pain free it completely outperforms my left hip. I may have to see Dr. Loucks again in the future but with no concerns about the outcome.
