Dr. Hardy replaced my hip and knee. He is not only a great surgeon but a patient man who takes time to explain the medical details of the operation and what to expect in recovery. He also has basic common sense and has a great staff. I would recommend him to everyone.

He replaced my right hip just 3 weeks ago and I’m feeling great!! Best I’ve felt in almost 2 1/2 years. He’s a very conscientious and kind doctor. He takes the time to listen and is very good at what he does. My wife and I were thrilled to be referred to him. He’s the best!!

I had total hip replacement about two weeks ago done by Dr. Hardt. As skeptical as I am of doctors, I must say that Dr. Hardt wiped all that skepticism away at the consultation, i made an appointment right away. I am VERY VERY happy with the job done. I was up on my feet right away, and recovering wonderfully! My home nurse even said my wound looks great and that I must of had a great doctor. 100% agreed! Dr Hardt is a wonderful doctor & he has a great team! HIGHLY recommend him to everyone!!

I have never gotten advise and instruction before and after surgery from a doctor intended to help the recovery process, it lets me know the provider cares about the service they render as well the health of the patient.

I think very highly of Dr Hardt and would gladly recommend him to others. He always has time to answer my questions, made Shute I understood my options before knee replacement surgery and the decision was mine to make. I’m glad I did the first knee and am actually looking forward to the next one getting done. He saw me in the hospital and his bedside manner is the best I have experienced. He is the full package and really cares about his patients.

I had knee replacement surgery with Dr. Hardt. He walked my wife & I through the entire process so we knew what to expect. The surgery itself went smoothly, and he and his entire team were committed to ensuring that I understood what was needed from me, and were available to answer questions along the way.
