Dr Clayton is great!!!! He did a revision on a total hip arthroplasty that a surgeon at another clinic totally screwed up. I was in severe pain for the entire 8 weeks after my first surgery until Dr Clayton repaired what had been done. I highly recommend him to anyone needing a hip replacement. As far as his staff, they are wonderful, caring, and return calls very quickly something the other clinic never did.

I was referred to Dr. Clayton for revision surgery just 6 weeks following a total hip replacement. The surgeon who did the original hip replacement left me with an implant that moved down into my femur causing constant pain and one leg over 1 inch shorter than the other. This was not an acceptable outcome! I felt better 3 DAYS after Dr. Clayton's surgery than I felt 6 weeks after the initial surgery! Dr. Clayton is professional, highly qualified, and really cares about his patients.

I was suffering from pain in my left hip, which, also, caused my left knee to hurt immensely. My family doctor, Dr. Karen Allen, recommended Dr. Clayton, who was very understanding & he would console me during the doctor visits prior to surgery. The pain was INSTANTLY relieved after the surgery. Yes, I had some pain from the surgery, but it CERTAINLY was NOT as HORRIBLE as it was before surgery. I was EXTREMELY PLEASED with Dr. Clayton & I will DEFINITELY return to him should I need to!

Following a new hip replacement, I fell a week later and broke my femur in two places. Dr. Clayton performed a delicate and difficult revision procedure to repair the broken bone and replace the implant. He did this with consummate skill. He is a superb surgeon. He has special training in this speciality of hip revision. He has a very calm manner and explains medical procedures very clearly. He promotes patient confidence by his positive attitude. He is highly considerate of patient needs

Dr. Clayton and staff are very compassionate and informative. I had an accident in 2015 and I am just now able to receive a knee replacement. I have researched for months and I know without a shadow of doubt that I have chosen the best surgeon for my complicated case.

Great Doctor and staff! Has always been informative and shows compassion to my situation. His staff is always friendly and welcoming. Wait times are short and rarely go past scheduled times. If your having problems with your hips or knees he is the Doctor to see in Huntsville. Highly recommend!

Had an Anterior Total Hip Replacement in my left hip performed by Dr. Clayton in June of last year. I've had both my right knee and right hip replaced so I'm not exactly inexperienced. Wish I'd found Dr. Clayton before having those done. He was wonderful, great at explaining and so was his nurse. I had the surgery on Thursday morning and was home by Friday afternoon. PT was MUCH easier, entire recovery was MUCH easier. Much less pain. He was compassionate, helpful, and I highly recommend.

I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Clayton. He did a total hip replacement on me. I had had a total hip replacement at another orthopedic practice here in town 3 years before. I had a great outcome both places but the difference in the recovery, the attitude and the attention paid to my concerns by the doctor and his staff and the ease of dealing with any concerns before and after the surgery were night and day. I was back on the golf course in 8 weeks thanks to Dr. Clayton.

Dr. Clayton is a great doctor with a very nice office staff. I would recommend him to anyone!
If you must go there (Sportsmed) seek a different physician to see.
Untrustworthy! Worker's comp claim. Previous visit he imposed restrictions employer couldn't accommodate, then today almost nothing about my condition had changed and he didn't release me. WC case manager called afterwards & said she went and spoke to him and to her released me. ..seems suspicious. Employer still won't allow me to return because he knows I'm unable. Ijust read his report to WC and it reads nothing like what he and I discussed at visit...it was full of falsehoods!
This man is not trustworthy. Was sent there be workers comp. On my last visit my condition had barely changed since the previous visit. I was still in considerable pain so he gave me an injection. He said absolutely nothing about releasing me to return to work and i left. An hour later my WC case manager called and said "I went to Dr.Clayton's office and talked to him and he released you with no restrictions". I just read his WC report and their are 3 misrepresentations. I'll be praying for him.

What an amazing surgeon and staff! I am a fit, middle aged woman. I had a knee replacement 3 years ago that was done by another orthopedic surgeon and after 6 additional procedures I was never able to resume my exercise and daily routine without enduring as much or more pain than I had before the original surgery. Dr. Clayton revised my knee replacement less than two months ago and I have already met and exceeded my post surgery goals. It is wonderful to have my active life back.
