Dr. Parvizi was amazing. My hip was completely deteriorated and he took me in for surgery a week after my appointment. I'm five months post surgery and I feel better than ever! He has a wonderful bedside manner before and after.
in Wallingford, PA |
I could not be happier with the whole process of my total hip replacement. Dr. Parvizi is clearly an expert in the procedure, but he also was kind, caring and compassionate with me before, during and after my operation. He clearly explained the process and listened to my questions and concerns.

I always feel confident that I've had good care when I come here.

He was on his BlackBerry through every appointment and would hardly stay in the room long enough for me to even comprehend what he was saying to me. He told me he couldn't do for me after several visits even though I was on crutches because my hip was popping out of the joint. He started dodging my calls finally just referred me WITHIN Rothman to do a surgery he could do. It was a horrible experience. I am actually thankful he didn't on me as I hear he dumps patients similarly after surgery.
Dear Patient, We would love to speak with you directly to gather more detail. If interested, please contact us 267-339-3689. Sincerely, Rothman Institute

Lebanon, PA |
I am a very active , fit 59 yo physician. Had first hip replacement in Harrisburg six years ago. Everything great , back to work in five weeks and doing Vinyasa yoga. Had THR at Rothman by Dr. Parvizi in November. He came highly recommended. But he must have let the intern practice on me. Nearly six months later I still have excruciating electric shocks down my thigh. He wasn't even in the office for my follow up visit and the one phone call from him demonstrated no concern or interest.
in Kingston, PA |
I was in constant pain and could hardly walk due to bad hips. Other doctors I consulted were pessimistic regarding how much activity I could resume after hip replacements. Dr. Parvizi was much more optimistic, and the results six months after Dr. Parvizi and his team at the Rothman Institute replaced my hips completely exceeded my expectations. I've been able to resume activities I haven't been able to do in 30 years. It's been life changing for me, I can walk, bike, golf and live life again.

I am a practicing spine surgeon and have had the pleasure of seeing DrParvizi for a surgical consultation. I am a few weeks post surgery and so far all is going according to plan for an extremely challenging knee revision. His bedside manner is second to none and he is so thoughtful in his approach to patients. Having worked with so many he is by me considered the best of the best. A blessing to have foond him .

Had FAO surgeries and labral tear repairs on each hip. Right one was fairly successful. Had left side operated on few months later. Never healed properly. Despite my many calls, my PT's calls, - told it would just take time. No urgency, and felt my concerns and pain issues not considered. Had other opinions- Dr,'s wondered what he even did in initial surgeries.(barely shaved down any bone.) Left hangingfor 6 months by Dr,. his asst., and Rothman. Third surgery by another Dr.has saved me.
Ideal service and care

I feel fantastic after 4weeks post hip surgery.????
in Jupiter, fl |
6 months post hip replacementt I was unable to step down without pain, or extend my leg backward. My new hip was sliding around within th socket. Dr Parvisi just shrugged his shoulders and declared my procedure a failure. He told me to go home and come back in 6 months...not sure what miracle was supposed to happen. I learned hip placement was too high.and there is nerve damage. After 4 years of tests,MRIs, Pt, aqua therapy, shots, massage, laser, yoga, medication, orthotics, I still have pain.
