In April 2013, Dr. Chow did my hip replacement. I was very happy with the results. However after a fall, my pain was back & worse than ever! He did a surgical release of the iliopsoas that provided some relief for a short period. Today, 8/18/16, I researched "pain AFTER a hip replacement" and found out that iliopsoas impingement & tendinitis after a hip replacement happens & can be treated with bursa injections. Over 3 years of severe pain & I had to find this out on my own...enough said!

infection in my knee replacement, had to have a revision. my permanent award on a injury at work was taken away bacause he is to busy making money to show up at my hearing. he would not mention my back problem, he has cost me 750 dollars a month for life,I think he and his group pay me a monthly payment for all the business i sent him before his bad knee procedure. I hope you read this Jimmy and know all the damage you have done to me and my family. William Lammers

HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR CHOW TO ANYONE WITH KNEE OR HIP PROBLEMS. EXCELLENT SURGEON,HIGHLY SKILLED IN ALL AREAS
Dr Chow is THE ONLY doctor I will go to for my orthopedic needs. As a medical professional myself, Dr Chow is by far the best orthopedic surgeon I have ever worked with and had the pleasure as calling my physician.

We are wintering here from Oregon and I started having problems with a hip replacement I had done in 2013. We found Doctor Chow and are so pleased with him and his approach to figuring out what is wrong with with my hip! Well worth having to wait to be seen. The front desk informed us there would be a wait but Dr Chow didn't rush through my appointment! His assistant Bricia is wonderful about returning phone calls and is a real asset!

Encourages patients to let him do compartmental knee surgery instead of full replacement. First visit we waited 3 hours. Second appt he brings in 5 students , patients need to know that he is only at the office 1 day per week and that two weeks out of every month he is iff training and his assistant refused to send a simple message/question when he is not in office. Then I left two messages for the office manager asking for a drug my insurance company sent to them, guess what no return call

Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
