Both my husband are very happy with the results . We will go with him again and will highly recommend him to everyone we know. Thank You Methodist Hospital. By th way!! my husba

May be the best surgeon in the world, but, who'd know? He does NOT have time (or interest, whose to say) to talk to you if you are the patient, so if you are OK with that, I imagine he is fine. Do remember, though, YOU as a person have very little to do with it.

Dr. Pulido replaced my hip almost a year ago. He is excellent. I truly believe my new hip is a miracle. He listens and cares about you. There were complications once the surgery started as there was a muscle tear they weren't expecting. He treated that as well as replacing my hip and I am 100 percent recovered. I trust him completely.

Dr. Pulido did a partial hip replacement on my 92 year old father. It was an emergency surgery after a fall. The doctor did his job expertly and with authority. I appreciate that after the surgery, he sat with me, the daughter, and reviewed medical decisions he had made. 3 1/2 months later my dad is walking with a rolling walker, playing bridge 3 times a week, and worrying about the UofH Cougars football team. Dr. Pulido has released my dad with one instruction- do not fall again. Thank you!
