Had hip replacement in mid June during a pandemic. What’s a big deal about That??? No worries after first visit to the offices. Everyone was on top of safety and distancing protocols. ?? very professional and Dr Gallantine and his staff listen to you. My last surgeon did Not. Hip is healing fine and I am very happy I made change to this doctor. Written 8 weeks after surgery. *The telehealth video call is a bit of a mess, cut off video in middle. But Dr called back on phone right away.

Dr. Gallentine performed an anterior total hip replacement on me 1 week ago. I have had very little pain. His PA was excellent as well! I am already walking with a cane and would have never guessed that this would be so easy. I am so grateful for my care and for an excellent surgeon who is obviously extremely talented!! I would highly recommend him and his staff! I don't think it could be much better!

Dr Gallentine was amazing. I have had both hips replaced by him. I know several people who had him do their surgeries and they all thought he was the best. His two PA’s were also great. I highly recommend Dr. Gallentine and the Lincoln Surgical Hospital where my surgeries were done.

He put my left hip in July 2017 with unbelievable results! He is an extremely talented surgeon and very smart! I had my right hip replaced by a different surgeon 10 years earlier and still have pain! If you need a new hip let Dr. Gallentine put it in with a anterior procedure you will never regret it! John his PA, is also a carrying and intelligent caregiver. He tells you the truth! Can’t say enough great things about these two Doctors!

Saw him in the Nebraska Citiy Clinic. Went in for knee problems, his intern checked me and said she thought it was a hip problem. He came in and checked me and said he thought his intern was right and I even asked "even though it started with my knee?" He said yes. So they did an MRI on my hip. Nothing wrong with my hip. He then said they could MRI my knee. No money left after paying for the MRI on my hip. He needs to listen to his patient.
