    Dr. Unis has outstanding expertise. He employs two approaches for hip replacement to meet the needs of all patients. My experience was of the best: his surgical skills are superior, his staff and medical colleagues among the best. For major surgery you want experienced top tier caliber, so I highly recommend Dr. Unis. Needing surgery is tough so ensure your recovery is filled with gratitude because you gave yourself great hands to do the job.

    The moment I saw Dr. Unis I realized he is the right doctor for me. He did such a good job on my hip that I feel totally renewed! Thank you, Dr. Unis! I highly recommend him for anyone who looks for orthopedics services! I trust him and am so happy I did my surgery at his clinic!

    Great surgeon. He did such a good job on my knee replacement, I returned to him when it came time to replace my hip. Would highly recommend him. Good sense of humour as well.
