Dr. Prevost repaired my hip performing many procedures, I am now walking normal with no pain, He was very thorough in explaining to me my problems and how he was going to perform the procedures to repair the joint and muscles. I would recommend him to anyone needing orthopedic surgery. I will visit him again for any future needs.

I had significant knee pain for years. I had heard all the negative knee replacement stories so my search for a prospective surgeon was extensive. In speaking with friends, patients, and medical professionals Dr. Prevost's name kept popping to the top of the list. Upon seeing Dr. Prevost the X-rays confirmed that I was a definite candidate for a full knee replacement. I had a TKR in January. I now have complete range of motion and am practically pain free. In my opinion Dr. Prevost is the best!

I am a 59 year old active male. Dr. Prevost did a great job on my left hip replacement just over a year ago. I am pain free and back to my busy lifestyle.

Dr. Prevost has replaced both of my hips. In both cases he was patient answering all of my pre-operation questions and my post-operation ones. He took the time I needed to feel reassured. Never did I feel he was in a hurry or my worry was not valid. One memorable detail to me is he always shakes hands. That human touch in the room just prior to going into the operation room is definitely meaningful to me. Both of my new hips are excellent.

Dr. Prevost did a wonderful job replacing my right hip, The people that he has working with him are very professional and courteous. Replacing a hip is a scary thing, its so nice to be able to walk pain free. My right knee is going to need replaced later on down the road and Dr. Prevost will be doing that surgery also.

I’ve had two hip replacements eight years apart by Dr. Prevost. Both surgeries were a different technique, it’s amazing the improvement in the procedure. I’m beyond pleased that he cares enough to keep progressing in his field. I would not go anywhere else! Neither time did I have any problems with the procedure and I have returned to activities I haven’t been able to do in years.

Dr. Prevost did an excellent job replacing my left hip. It was more difficult because I have scoliosis. I have no pain and can walk without a limp for miles. I would choose him again for future surgeries.

I went to see Dr. Prevost with hip pain over three years ago. He Looked at my X-rays and discussed with me what my options were. We decided to try steroid injections to see if they would relieve the pain. I was relatively pain free for over 2 1/2 years. When the pain became more bothersome and started affecting my mobility and flexibility I returned to Dr. Prevost and he did a total hip replacement for me. I was amazed at how quickly I was up and walking again.

I was examined by 2 doctors prior to Dr. Prevost. They simply looked at the x-rays and diagnosed my condition from them. Dr. Prevost examined the x-rays as well as actually feeling my knees and noting the scrapping of the deposits. He explain all the options other than surgery and then all the possible negative results from surgery. He also presented probable lifespan of the replacement. I am 12 weeks after surgery and have been more than happy with the results. Planning a 2nd surgery next

Dr Provost was efficient, accommodating and to the point. My recovery from hip replacement was rapid and with minimal pain. Within a few weeks, I had normal use of my right hip and was able to return to my usual activities that include housekeeping, stair climbs and outdoor time spent gardening and hiking over trails with steep inclines. Oh-by the way, the surgery occurred a few months after my 86th birthday. I have full confidence in Dr Provost.

I lived with hip pain for three years, then became almost un-functional doing daily task and was hesitant of doing total hip replacement. After having the procedure dune by Dr. Prevost, my life is back to normal again. It couldn't have gone any better!

I love my new knee. Dr. Prevost did an excellent job giving me a new knee. The only regret I have is that I didn't do it sooner. Thank you Dr. Prevost.

I had both knees replaced at the same time. Yes, it was tough, probably one of the hardest things I have ever done. Dr. Prevost was very up front about the pain and work needed to make my new knees work properly. He provided plenty of information about the procedure and his office worked closely with my doctor at home to make sure I was ready. I did what the man said and I could not be happier with the results. No more knee pain and I do things I have not been able to do for years. Thanks Dr. P!

I began to experience moderate pain in my left hip in July of 2015 that continued to increase such that by early 2016 I was walking but with sever pain and a terrible limp. My GP recommended I see Dr Prevost who quickly diagnosed the problem as stage 4 osteonecrosis, after an informative consultation we scheduled a hip replacement. Now two years since I remain pain free, walking normally with little to remind me that I ever had hip surgery. . I highly recommend Dr Prevost & Staff to anyone.

I'm a runner who had a labral tear in my hip, along with impingement. I found Dr. Prevost is one of the few doctors in the state to provide this surgery. My surgery went very well, and I had an excellent, speedy recovery with minimal pain or scarring afterward. I went from having significant pain just sitting for more than 10 minutes before surgery, to being able to climb uphill without any discomfort less than 8 months later.
