Dr Shamlou replaced my hip and did a superb job. It has been perfect for 5 years. I am returning for assessment of the second hip now.

Dr Shamlou is one of the best Dr's. This man saved my life. Because of him, I am still walking today. I wouldn't let any other Dr's touch me. I am great full that I was referred to him. He explained everything to me and made sure I understood before I decided to have surgery. 100% percent happy

Dr Shamlou saved my life twice! I hurt my back two times in 4 years and both times dr shamlou did excellent work on me. he is so considerate and takes the time with you to explain all aspects of the surgery whether good or bad & what to expect during and after my surgery. the minute I got up to walk after my surgery the pinched nerve pain was completely gone. I can once again walk and do activities with my grandchildren. thank you DR Shamlou I will forever be grateful for what you've done for me

Dr Shamlou is amazing! Aside from being a brilliant orthopedic surgeon, his bedside manner is off the charts. You instantly feel at his ease when he walks into the room. Armed with the warmest of smiles and the greatest of knowledge that comes from his years of practice, you just know everything is going to be alright. I had hip replacement surgery two months ago & everything went perfect. Not only would I go to him again, I won't go to anybody else. Dr Shamlou is there for his patients 100%.
