I went into a total hip replacement surgery not having had any surgeries since I was 3 years old. I received excellent care, concern and answers for all my questions, and state of the art surgery on my hip. I would recommend and have recommended Dr. Lang for friends and acquaintances who are contemplating hip repair. He is both skilled and compassionate.

First rate care from initial appt to surgery to post op care. Fantastic results from anterior hip replacement. Dr. Lang is a top notch surgeon with a modern approach. His attention to detail is superb, and all support staff are caring and competent. No one wants to have major surgery, but this was the best possible experience. I am 100% pleased with my results.

Dr. Lang did my hip replacement at the end of December last year. He put my concerns about surgery at ease. He is very competent, caring, and courteous as well as his staff. He provided excellent pre and post op care. I may need knee surgery in the future and I will gladly have him perform the surgery. I have already recommended him to family members for his expertise.

He did my anterior hip replacement in December of 2009 and it truly was a great experience! This is a talented doctor that listens to your needs as well as the rest of the staff, including the PA's that work with him. Everyone at each appointment always answered any questions I had and made me feel extremely comfortable. Thank you!

I waited a month with severe hip pain for an opening to see Dr. Lang and he talked down to me & got me out the door in 10 min. He knew I needed hip replacement surgery but wanted me to start walking with cane (I am 43 years old) & gave me brush-off! He is a jerk - don't waste your time. I talked to several physical therapists in the area after another Dr. did my hip replacement & all I mentioned was jerk and they knew exactly who I was talking about without mentioning names.
