I've had to take a seizure control medícation for many years. That, along with age has damaged my hip and knee joints. Dr Levy won't jump into a surgery until he knows it's necessary. I've had one hip replacement 12 years ago and one knee replacement 5 years ago by Dr Levy. It's as if nothing was done. Feels great. Now need the other hip and knee replaced. I wouldn't have any other orthopedic surgeon except Dr Levy. He's the best!

Dr. Levi preformed a total knee replacement almost 4 years ago, and it went exactly as he told me it would. As luck would have it, my other knee gave way and needed to be done, and I again contacted Dr. Levi. He advised what had to be done, and once again, it has turned out exactly as he said it would, thank you so much! JMKeller Kensington

Dr. levy replaced my right hip 8 years ago and no surgeon, I repeat no surgeon, could be any better than him!! I was out of the hospital in 2 days, never used a walker, was using 2 crutches on day 2, one crutch day 3, a Cain day 4, and then nothing! He does amazing minimally invasive surgery and his rehab is just walking every day! He shakes your hand, smiles, and doesn't insist you have surgery unless you feel the pain is too much! He is the best possible as I have had no problems at all!!
