Dr Garvin performed a hip replacement on me in 2008 and the results were amazing. I was instantly pain free, recovered in 3 weeks and have been riding a bike sense, great doctor and support team.

I found out I needed a hip replacement over 5 years ago. As I am especially young, it was recommended that I try to get by as long as possible before I did the surgery in order to minimize the need for revision surgery later in life. Thankfully this gave me a lot of time to research and get referrals. Dr. Garvin came up many more times than anyone else. It took me a while to get into see him as he is in demand. It was well worth the wait. I am very glad I went with him.
