in Laguna Niguel, CA |
The good Doctor tried to tell me that both my knees were equally bad (either couldn't interpret the x-rays properly or was trying to milk me for 2 surgeries). Did he really think I wasn't getting other opinions ? I'm a happy camper now - after going with an honest, non condescending, skillful surgeon.

2 times appointment to talk to him in regards of hip surgery and back to back appointments sitting in lounge for 40 minuets to be toldhe left for the day so hard to get out of work early just want to ask couple question and total of about 5 minuets of his time I need it doe got the insurance so I guess I will find another doctor to bad The just are to busy

So happy I choose Dr Caillouette. He is the best. Two months post surgery and very little pain, just a bit of stiffness. His whole team, including Hoag Orthopedic Hospital made the process a breeze. . My only regret is how long I postponed having the surgery done.

I would highly recommend Dr. Caillouette. I had TKR right knee - April 2016 and TKR left knee - November 2016. My outcome has been fantastic. I have full range of motion and no pain. I believe that my outcome is the direct result of Dr. Cailouette's skill as a surgeon and the excellent team behind him namely his PA Cara Walker.
in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA |
Dr. Calliouette, his PA Cara and everyone I met and spoke to both pre-op, at the hospital and post-op were very kind, knowledgeable and helpful with my recent hip replacement surgery. I had been suffering for a year and had seen 2 different surgeons before I selected Dr. Calliouette to perform my surgery. I am very satisfied and would recommend HOI to all my friends.
in Huntington Beach, CA |
Dr. Caillouette and his physicians assistant Cara were amazing throughout the entire process. I couldn't be happier and would definitely recommend them to anyone requiring their expertise.
in Laguna Beach, CA |
He and his staff are extremely professional and passionately understanding of my pain. The procedures and everything was explained very thoroughly. Everyone was the best!
in Long Beach, CA |
When a surgeon is this good they are very busy, so it is key for them to have good support staff. HOI has pre-surgery seminars which help to prepare you for surgery, I was very impressed with the infection control procedures, I went into surgery and left HOI with detailed medication and ice therapy instructions to deal with pain, blood clots and side affects. In home PT was excellent and the NOI kept up with my work related disability paperwork. A first rate experience all around.
in Waikoloa, HI |
It has been 12 years since Dr. Caillouette replaced both of my hips and 8 years since he has replaced both of my knees . I have never had a problem post surgery with either and I am a regular golfer. Dr. Cailllouette was excellent and would highly recommend him.
