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.

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.
