in St Louis, MO |
He refused to acknowledge my botched surgery resulting in second surgery 9 months later leaving me with neuropathy. First surgery left me bruised from top of my hip, down my outer thigh plus a bruise on my inner thigh from top to bottom. He lied in my chart downplaying my complaints and concerns. Xrays show stem was put in slanted. 6 years later I still walk with a cane. Just had other hip replaced (by different surgeon) (no bruises) recovery is slow as I don't have a strong hip for support.

Did a great job on my knee replacement. It hurt like hell, but 6 weeks later it was great!!!!!!!

Dr. Kriegshauser is an excellent surgeon who took the time to explain my upcoming surgery. He is very dedicated to treating complex issues and I would highly recommend him for hip replacement and reconstruction surgery. He is a perfectionist - just what every patient wants in a surgeon!
