My mother just had Direct Superior Total Hip Replacement, that is minimally-invasive. There is no cutting of muscle or tendons, nor dislocation during surgery. As an experienced nurse, I am so impressed with the skill, knowledge, and bedside manner of this of this surgeon. My mother is 78 years old and immediately after surgery she looked like she would be ready to go in a couple of hours. She had PT just hours after surgery. A huge difference from 4 years ago when she had her other hip done.

I am 5 weeks out from TKR. While my recuperation has not been easy, Dr. Fischer has been supportive through the process, both pre and post. He provided realistic information about the surgery and recovery, pre surgery. I appreciated he did not sugarcoat, as this has helped my to navigate the ups and downs of my recovery. One gets the sense he is meticulous, lending confidence to his skills. I chose him on the recommendation of a nurse who has worked with him in the hospital setting.

I am eight weeks out from a hip replacement and feeling great for a 68 year old. Dr. Fischer and his team have made this experience a terrific one from start to finish. I was off pain meds and walker 3 1/2 days after surgery and hung up the cane ages ago. Physical therapy has been strengthening my leg and getting me back into shape. Dr. Fischer has dramatically improved my quality of life. Take it from a guy whose last surgery was in 1955 - This guy is the real deal. Let him help you.

Dr. Fischer worked around my schedule. He is very caring and always is right on time with appointments. He replaced my right hip and as soon as I woke in the recovery room, I was not in any pain. He has worked a miracle for me. I can now walk and do all the things that I have not been able to do for a very long time. I need both knees replaced and you bet that it will be Dr. Fischer that I go to for that surgery. I feel very fortunate that I was recommended to go to him by another surgeon.

I have recommended Dr. Fischer to numerous persons already, at 6 weeks post op i seem to be back to normal, walking, biking and playing with grandchildren, however, weather and schedule have cept me off the golf course.

Dr. Fischer and his team are fantastic! He made getting my hip fixed a smooth process from start to finish. Although I'm not looking forward to more surgery, when I need my knee replaced I will definitely be coming back to see him!

Dr. Fischer was truly sent from Heaven to care for me! He is the VERY best...both professionally as well as compassionately. I am a "hard case" because of my M.S., my bone disease (Osteogenesis Imperfecta), and other problems; but Dr. Fischer took me on anyway with excellent care...and CARING! I thank God every day that I have the very best care possible!
in Milwaukie, OR |
Dr. Fischer replaced my left hip on 10/04/2016. I initially planned on speaking with several Doc’s before committing. I researched different methods & watched the surgery on youtube. During my first appointment with Dr. Fischer it was evident that he was very confident so I scheduled the surgery. They had me up right away & out the next morning with no restrictions. I was on crutches for 3 days, used a cane for 2 days, I’m 2 weeks post-op & walking unassisted even up stairs! Highly recommended!
Portland, OR |
Dr. Fischer has been fantastic. Not only is his bedside manner great, but he fixed my knee pain after I was told there was no solution. I'm back at work and walking without a cane for the first time in years. Thank you!
