      He is not only the best orthopedic surgeon in Chicago his team is also wonderful. Saw him for a hip replacement and I'm so happy.
      Chicago, IL |
      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.
      in Chicago, IL |
      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.

      Arrogant. Will not se this doctor for my final post op visit. Will See a more pleasant MD For other knees and just as good, if not better.
      in Northbrook, Illinois |
      He did a great job. I was not forced to wait in a waiting room for hours just minutes. Good experience, considering

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
