I have had 7 surgeries in the past 3 years and out of all of them Dr. Kirshenbaum was my biggest mistake. Of my life. I had a total Hip Replacement with him 2 years ago and till today my leg is worse then what it was before the surgery. I can't put on my own socks and I can't wear shoes with laces...more
