in Stuart, FL |
Dr Shute performed a total left hip replacement after an accident. He was very conscientious, caring and suggested the best procedure to quickly get me back to work and my other activities. Being an athlete I was very concerned about being able to quickly return to my sport. I learned too after surgery from friends how hard and long he worked to insure the replacement kept both leg lengths equal.
