I had a laminectomy 8 weeks before hip replacement. Then, I had acute physical therapy,, home therapy and finished up with outpatient physical therapy. I went on vacation after that and then came back for my eight-week check-up. I can't even tell that I had a hip replacement. I have no pain. My movement has been limited due to back pain but not hip pain. I highly, highly recommend Dr. Schnell. I also highly recommend any physical therapy you can receive following surgery.

Dr. Schnell was kind and used words that I could understand. He didn't use a lot of technical terms. He was very good at explaining my diagnosis and treatment.
