My mother had a knee replacement in February. The surgery was done well, and the recovery was smooth. Dr Heller cares a lot about his patients, does a thorough job, and follows up appropriately. We would recommend Dr Heller to anyone who is in need of a knee replacement.

Personable, friendly, efficient. Felt cared for during process of my hip replacement surgeries. However, very important side affect was not mentioned prior to surgeries nor addressed post surgery despite my pressing the issue. Heller’s type of hip replacement surgery, fast recovery’s, minimal scarring, left me and others (I found out later) with SIGNIFICANT nerve damage to outer thigh area. I am 2 years post surgery and it is as bad and possibly getting worse. There is nothing that can fix it

I had both knees done at the same time. It wasn’t as hard as I thought it was going to be. Dr. Heller does a different cut and I can get on my knees. Every one I know can not, but they didn’t have Dr. Heller. He’s the nicest kindest doctor I have ever been too.

It is now ten years since Dr. Heller replaced both of my knees. He did a great job, changed my life. The knees are still perfect. He is a very gifted and talented surgeon! Recently, I fell and sprained an MCL. He got me right in, knew exactly what it was, and gave me perfect advice.

Dr. Heller is awesome! He has a great bedside manner but more importantly, he is an extremely good surgeon. He did both of my wife's hips, just 3 weeks apart and everything went as smoothly as we could hope for.

Dr. Heller has changed my life! I had been suffering from hip pain for over 3 years (presumed to be bursitis). After tests, I was diagnosed with advanced osteoarthritis. I was shocked because I was only in my late 40s. Since January, 2017, Dr. Heller has replaced both of my hips. Prior to surgery, I could barely walk, stand, clean my home, shop, etc. Now, only 3 weeks after my second hip replacement, I am doing all of those things and then some! I am thrilled and grateful for Dr. Heller!

Dr. Heller's surgery technique is innovative, but tested, and has provided me with an outcome far beyond the outcome of other types of hip surgeries that friends have had. He does not cut any muscle or nerve, consequently the hip is very strong and supported immediately. I don't have to worry about falling, impact, or other movements. No restrictions. This means playing tennis, running, and skiing are all still a go!
