Dr. Sweetser replaced my mothers hip and returned my mom to full use. He was wonderful, his staff, the hospital were wonderful. My mother is back to her bubbly, passionate, and engergetic self. I appreciate all he has done for our family both before, during and after the surgery. He is the best!

I have nothing but praise for Dr. Sweetser. He had done such an amazing job! The only weak link in Dr. Sweetser operation is Rachel Martinez, the surgical care coordinator. In my opinion, the surgical care coordinator, would be the most important FIRST step in this organization. However, I found it to be the opposite and almost cancelled my surgery because of her. I have a lot more to say, but this form doesn't allow me to do that. I can be reached at 575-937-5892.

I had total hip replacement by Dr. Sweetser on 06/13/2016 and by the time I saw Dr. Sweetser again on 6/28/2016 I was walking without a cane or walker. I was totally amazed by the whole process. I went from being very restricted in what I was able to do to doing almost anything in only 2 weeks, except for the normal total hip precautions. I'm recommending Dr. Sweetser to anyone who will listen.
