Patient Comments (4)
in Robinson, Tx |
I had total knee replacement In Sept 2017 and received the best care from Dr Hitt and his team ever expected. I had a very fast recovery and feel like new again. Love this Doctor.
in Weatherford, TX |
I strongly discourage anyone from having surgery at this office by this team. They appear to be consumed with performing as many surgeries as possible with absolutely no follow up with their patients. Dr. Hitt and his team will consult with you and promise that they will take excellent care of you but in actuality they will never check on your progress after the initial surgery. They collect and move on to the next person with no regard for the final outcome of the patient/ procedure.

In 1998 I had a double knee replacement completed by Dr. Hitt. I had a complete recovery and would recommend Dr. Hitt if you should be in need of knee surgery. I have now developed Osteoarthritis in my back, and will be checking into getting a 2nd opinion on treatment etc with Dr. Hitt.
in Temple, TX |
Dr. Hitt performed my husband's hip/knee replacements as well as revisions for both due to infection spread throughout the body due to endocarditis. His care, concern and capability to deal with complex revisions make him worthy of 20 stars in my book!!
