I had my right hip replaced on January 31 2019 by Dr Blankstein. I am completely satisfied with my new hip joint. I was out of bed and on my feet the same day, and my recovery was rapid. I was driving two weeks after my surgery. I am now pain free and have resumed normal activity. Dr Blankstein is an outstanding surgeon and a nice guy. I highly recommend him.

Knee joint replacement surgery was one year ago. Throughout the whole process from the initial visit for evaluation to the one year post-op check, Dr. Blankstein has been honest, supportive and encouraging. My knee is now stabile and pain free. Should my other knee require surgical intervention, I would not hesitate one minute to call him. Tom Munn

Dr. Blankstein was fantastic. I had my right hip replaced back in February 2018 and the recovery time was very quick, within two to three weeks, walking with no assistive devices and amazing the difference between before and after surgery. It's now been a little over a year and back to playing hockey and other activities I couldn't do before the surgery. Highly recommend Dr. Blankstein.

Dr. Blankstein is an awesome surgeon! From the diagnosis, through pre-treatment , surgery and post care he was friendly, respectful and encouraging! I probably asked more questions than any other patient, but he always responded with answers that my husband and I could understand. His staff was as courteous , caring and respectful as well. I would whole heartedly recommend Dr. Blankstein for knee replacement surgery!

After a year of pain in my hip, I was diagnosed with a deterioration of the hip joint. Not having had any experience with orthopedic surgeons, I was fortunate to make an appointment with Dr. Blankstein. He took time to explain my condition, surgery and related possible risks , as well as what to expect during recovery. I found Dr. Blankstein to be a compassionate and experienced surgeon. I highly recommend Dr. Blankstein! My surgery was a complete success!!

What most impressed me about Michael Blankstein was his team. He had obviously honed the system so his team worked exceedingly well together. As I faded under the anesthesia I saw Michael with his clipboard; I knew that I was in the capable hands of the team. In a couple of days I was up and walking from my full hip replacement after a fractured femur head, unusual for a 76-yr-old. Michael made the right call for full- rather than a partial- hip replacement.

I'm a 71 Year old woman who has had both knees recently replaced by Dr. Blankstein. One was replaced in June 2018 and the other in July 2018, with excellent results and a smooth recovery. Both knees were bone on bone prior to surgery and know are feeling great with good range of motion and extension. I would definitely recommend Dr. Blankstein for his skill, professionalism and ability & Willingness to answer any questions.

I had a hip replacement on 6/27/2017. Best decision I ever made. I had so much pain and could not walk properly or without pain. Within days of my surgery, I had no pain and did a quite recovery (12 weeks) with physical therapy. Today, I am walking three (3) miles at lease 3 times a week. No pain, I have never felt better at the age of 60. Highly recommend Dr. Michael Blankstein.

Dr. Blankstein did knee replacement surgery on me in September 2017. I can't thank him enough. The surgery went well, I did all the normal in home therapy and two outpatient therapy sessions. I regained very near normal flexibility. Another benefit was realizing at my first annual checkup that my other knee no longer bothers me since I am walking normally now. I recommend Dr. Blankstein to anyone needing knee replacement surgery.

Dr Blankstein changed my life. From being sleepless for over four years, I am now pain free and with my new hip have a new lease on life. The state of the art anterior approach made it possible for me to walk on the evening of my surgery. I cannot speak more highly of this superb professional. Thanks to Dr Blankstein I am back to being active again. From start to finish I have received the best care imaginable from this wonderfully skilled surgeon and his impressive team.

Dr. Blankstein was both professional and thorough when explaining the procedure and recovery process. I had no unanswered question before or after my surgeries. I would recommend Dr. Blankstein without hesitation to anyone thinking about having hip replacement surgery.

Dr. Blinkstein is very good doctor I would say if you need hip replacement that he is the one to have do it. I know my family is very pleased with him and my brother is seeing him for his knee and plans on having him do it when the time is right. Thank you very much for the good care that I have received from him.
