Dr. Schwecter is professional, personable and extremely capable. His initial exam was very thorough and he quickly accessed the problem. He performed a total hip replacement. The procedure went exactly as he described and recovery has been quicker and easier than anticipated. His work was even complimented by two different third party health professionals. One said he was "really good" at hip replacement. The other said "your doctor did a great job".

As a result of Dr Schwechters gift and expertise, not only the surgery he performed to replace my hip was a complete success, but my recuperation has been quick and continues to be a blessing after only 8 1/2 weeks since my surgery.

I have been in the health care field for over 30 years and know what it takes to be an excellent doctor. Dr. Schwechter is one. He is a wonderful, skilled, caring person and surgeon. He replaced my husband's hip( age 71) a few years ago. We were so pleased with the outcome, I had him replace my hip also in June 2018 and we can dance once again ! We continue to recommend him to others. He is the best !

I am a 64 year old male who recently had a total hip replacement and could not have had a better experience. Dr. Schwechter is a very skilled surgeon and an extremely kind individual. He was a true professional from our first meeting right up to the day of my discharge which was 24 hours after surgery. In my follow up visits with him he continues to show the same.

Dr. Schwechter is an excellent, caring surgeon. He took the time to fully explain my knee surgery and the recovery process. I would definitely recommend him to my family and friends who need not only surgery but just regular orthopaedic care.

The pain in my hip was unbearable. After Dr Schwechter did my hip replacement I was up walking the next day. I am now pain free and able to walk, drive and do all the things I used to enjoy. The care I received was excellent and I would recommend Dr Schwechter for orthopedic surgery

Dr. Schwechter is a refreshing change from the disturbing world of indifferent, strictly clinical medical technicians who usher you in and out of their offices with a general idea of your problem and a possible resolution within 10 minutes. He is a caring and insightful doctor who takes an interest in you and your background as it impacts on your health. You leave him after your initial visit feeling well informed about your situation and better able to make a sound decision.

I'm so grateful to have found Dr. Schwechter, who did revision surgery to remove the hardware, from a previous surgery for a fractured femur, Three other doctors wouldn't help me because they thought it would be to risky at my age (83). I couldn't walk at all, and had to use a wheelchair to get around. Dr. Schwechter operated on me on January 25th he removed the hardware, and gave me a new hip, I was instantly pain free, and with therapy am back walking with a cane. He's the best
