Patient Comments (2)

I would give Dr.Michael Arata 50 stars if it were possible. Had frozen,severely worn hip replaced. Anterior procedure. Twelve hours after surgery,I was walking with less pain than I had before surgery.No more popping and grinding with every move I made! That does not mean there was not a recovery...more
