Not at all satisfied with my partial knee replacement that Dr Puri perform on me when he was working at NWMH. Still in pain after 3 years. Never should have had a partial. A total replacement was warranted. He left quite a bit of arthritic spurs in my knee. I had to see another surgeon a year later to remedy what he blotched up!

Dr. Puri is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner - not a common combo. I've referred patients to him for years and recently had surgery with him. VERY happy with the results.

Dr. Puri is the best. He’s kind, confident and an expert in what he does. He replaced both of my hips in3 months. Before he replaced my hips I was seriously considering retirement. Now I’m happily returning to work next week. Thank you!

I am a Family Physician/ Sports Medicine doctor from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I had medical disaster occur to my 5+ year old hip replacement: A bacterial infection in my left hip/joint replacement. It was recommended that I go to Mayo Clinic to have my surgery. Instead, I did some research and discovered Dr. Puri. Under his care and his awesome team of professionals, he SAVED MY HIP, with a 2-stage reconstruction. Just 4 months after my 2nd operation, I am walking again. There is none better!!!

Dr Puri defines professionalism. He's clearly an expert in his field with a long track record borne of innate talent, intelligence and passion. I felt an immediate connection with him from the moment he walked in the room. There's no BS with him, and he obviously takes pride in what he does – and what he does (in my case) is replace and heal badly damaged knees with confidence and attention to detail. I was looking for the best – and I found him.

Dr. Puri is the best. He changed my life.. Dr. Puri replaced my hip over 11 yrs ago and I'm still up and running, better than ever. I would recommend him to everyone and I would scream that from a mountain top. If it had not been for him, I would have been bedridden for some time. Go see this doctor. He will get you up and moving again. I just love him.

I, Anna Kabakov, would like to share my story with you...hopefully it will help others... Last year, February 2nd, I underwent a hip replacement surgery performed by Lalit Puri, M.D. of North Shore Hospital in Skokie, IL. I don't have to tell you what kind of a major surgery and recovery it is, but what I would like to tell you that my experience with the doctor and the staff made me feel so stupid, unaware and nerve breaking each time I had to communicate with them. The wait was for hours at

I had hip replacement surgery in Mach of 2016 and he did a wonderful job. Dr. Puri, Maria and the rest of his staff were very nice and took excellent care of me. Would definitely recommend him.

Replaced both my knees at the same time, which saved time, money, and physical therapy sessions. Amazing results with absolutely no problems. Could barely walk a year ago but you'd never know it now, as I'm very active again with no pain at all. Great team follows patients closely and responds to any questions or concerns. I highly recommend Dr. Puri.

I had constant pain in my right hip. Dr. Puri corrrectly determined that I had arthritis in that hip and needed replacement of it to address the situation. He performed the minimal invasive direct anterior hip procedure to replace the hip. After the surgery, my pain level never got above 2, and with the help of Dr. Puri's team I was able to walk without a walker or cane in about two and a half weeks after surgery without any pain.

Dr. Puri was very nice and so was his staff. He was patient and took a lot of time explaining everything to me. He is very bright and thinks things through carefully. I felt like I was in good hands.
