Dr. Matta replaced my hip when i was 38 years old within a couple weeks I went sailing without a problem, within 1 month i was hiking moderately and on my 6 month anniversary I was hiking Mt Rainier which is NOT an easy hike with crampons and Ice Ax, the summit day was over 14 hours long and the hip was perfect. He doesn't spend a ton of time with you but that is not what you're paying for before the replacement I would have to use Crutches a lot of times just to get around.

Dr Maths was to shorten my abnormally long leg when replacing my hip. He didn't and lengthen it like he does normally with other pts. It took 9 wks to convince him he had done it wrong. He said he could operate again but would need to wait 1 yr to be eligible for FMLA again at work. Plus his hands are very shaky. Has quite an ego on top of all this. Have another MD do your surgery.

Dr. Matta, you gave me a new life. Two years ago I broke my hip and was brought into Saint Johns Hospital. You did my surgery and I went back to work after three months. After 2 years, I have almost a full recovery and function normally in every way. Like to say thank you and grateful to you. I wish I could say thank you in person.
