I had a left hip replacement done by Dr. Padgett. I was very concerned before I got it done and did a great deal of research. I also spoke to 3 other surgeons before I made a decision. I am very happy with my choice. Dr. Padgett's skill is excellent and his follow through was also quite superb. I need to get my other hip done, and there is no question that I will go back to him.

I have a complicated medical history where 1 surgeon wouldn't even consider my hip replacement; Dr. Padgett was willing to work with me to get it replaced. He not only saw me in recovery but everyday I was in the hospital. When I was home and experiencing some pain issues; I spoke to the after surgery nurse. Dr. Padgett saw that I had called and called the next day and was willing to help me get to the root of the pain problem. Great Surgeon, compassionate man and Doctor.

Perfect personality for what he does... Trust and honesty first and foremost... Wouldn't go through this with anyone else... The best

Dr. Padgett replaced one of my hips less than 6 weeks ago. I have a lifetime of coping with osteoporosis and arthritis, and I am astonished by the phenomenal skill and kindness of this doctor! I have had NO pain (just light soreness sometimes) in recovering from this surgery, and I immediately was able to walk normally, the day after surgery. Dr. Padgett also took into account both my hypermobility and the condition of my lower spine. To my astonishment, I no longer have lower back pain.

Dr. Padgett replaced my husband's hip almost a year ago. He has an excellent bedside manner and spent over an hour with us during our initial consultation discussing my husband's employment (construction), his restrictions at work and what he wants to be able to do again pain free. All of our follow up with him and his staff has been excellent.
