What People Say About Dr. Edward Connolly, MD

Dr Connolly is a good doctor and surgeon. He explains things somewhat. I feel that he really didn’t explain why my left knee hurts and is so tender still over 1 1/2 yrs. He just said the X-rays looked fine and I would just have to live with my knee the way it is. I have resigned myself to that fact. It’s as good as it’s going to get according to Dr Connolly. He did say to come back if I needed to.

Dr. Connolly replaced my right hip on January 21. I was able to play first full round of golf post surgery on April 16 and used a walk-behind mower a week before that. Have been active as I want since then with only a little soreness off and on. Chalk it up to Dr. Connolly’s surgical skill and after-surgery care, plus excellent care from Sam Rowe of Rock Valley Physical Therapy in Moline, Ill. Dr. Connolly is very likable and has a great staff backing him up. I would certainly recommend him to anyone considering hip replacement.

My husband and I have both gone to Dr. Connolly for our knees for the last couple years. My husband had a double knee replacement last year and is doing great. I have had the cortisone shots every 3 months for the last couple years. I am having one knee replaced in April. I totally trust Dr. Connolly and look forward to being able to walk pain free again.
