I had my second post-op visit today after 4.5 weeks from a knee replacement and my knee is doing very well with good range of motion and I will be returning to work in another week. Dr. Hart is an excellent surgeon, an expert in his field, and patient-friendly. Max, the PA, also took very good care of me during several visits. He was always able to answer my questions and is very patient and kind.

Dr Hart is the best. I am thankful to those who recommended him to me who had hip replacements done by him. It’s likely I’ll need my other hip replaced at some point and will be back. I was walking (carefully) without a walker or cane 4 days after surgery!

Without a doubt, I would recommend Dr. Hart to my family and friends. I had hip replacement surgery and I can only say that the entire procedure was painless. Immediately after coming out of anesthesia, I was able to walk with the assistance of a walker, (no pain). After an overnight stay in the hospital, I went home to 3x per week PT. One week and I graduated with a cane and after two weeks, no cane around the house. My whole experience was a positive one. Dr. Hart had explained the entire procedure and answered all questions thoroughly prior to surgery. The staff was most accommodating with appointments and scheduling as well. All in all, a very upbeat experience considering what I was originally anticipating.

Before you get a hip replacement you're hoping that you find the right doctor. Now 9 weeks after surgery I am very grateful that I found Dr Hart. Dr Hart and his team did a great job. My recovery was easier than expected and I feel great. I was back to work in 8 weeks.

Being a retired OR nurse I knew exactly what type of surgery I was going to have to have for my hip. I did my research! Went to five orthopedic surgeons, got three OR nurses recommendations, one OR supervisors recommendation, and a Rep who sells the hip prosthesis ( does these cases with all hip Dr's in the OR). The one common thread was Dr. Gavin Hart! From the beginning he didn't want to jump into surgery. We tried medication, injections and finally I couldn't stand the pain so we both thought surgery was my best option. Why didn't I do it sooner was my first thought when I woke up from anesthesia? No pain. Up walking five hours after surgery. I am now three months out and I'm feeling better than I did before I started having hip pain. Dr. Hart is stellar! Not only is he technically a phenomenal surgeon but he is kind ,compassionate, patient and you never feel like he's in a hurry! I would highly recommend Dr. Hart to whoever needs to have any type of hip surgery.

Dr Hart and is an understanding , compassionate physician whose surgical experience and technique were amazing. His assistant Maxwell is also extremely professional and friendly. Within two weeks of a hip replacement I could almost put the walker away! I would recommend Dr Hart to anyone in need of orthopedic surgery. I am at 6 weeks today and I feel fabulous.

I had my left knee replaced 7 years ago with a doctor in Miami. Dr. Hart replaced my right knee and the difference between the two was night and day. I went into surgery at 7:30 am, was discharged at 10:30am, and home having lunch at noon. If you need a total knee replacement, Dr. Hart should be your choice - excellent experience.
