Dr Edward Connolly is an excellent surgeon. He did 2 knee surgeries on my left knee, one in April to get the infection cleared up and take out the knee components and one in July to put the artificial knee components back in my knee. I am doing fine. Right now I am using a cane.

Dr. Connelly is an awesome orthopedic doctor! I tore my ACL and repaired it and had me up and feeling great in a week. He was kind and gentle and cared about what I had to say. He listened to me and answered all my questions. I would recommend Dr. Connelly for all of your orthopedic needs!

Dr. Connolly is a wonderful skilled surgeon who I have had do an arthroscopic knee surgery and most recently a trigger finger surgery. He always lets you know what he would tell you to do if you were his mom or dad concerning any given problem, which is very assuring! He takes the time to answer your questions and concerns and is very honest, kind, and caring.

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.
