DR. Ries was introduced as an expert for my prob I had two prior right hip surgeries and my incumbent ortho thought the Dr. Ries could help. Previously I had slight instability in my right hip. I had a slight wobble while walking. Based on my incumbent surgeon recommendations, I learned about some new machine that could see the muscles despite the titanium already there. After my MRI, Dr. Ries suggested surgery, A year later, I can hardly walk without falling. I use a cane 100%. Mass pain

I recommend Dr. Ries without reservation. I interviewed other doctors prior to asking Dr. Ries to do my hip replacement. He is patient, listens and understands patient concerns. The hip replacement went well, he followed up and made sure that my physical therapy for rehab matched what was needed. The recovery was complete. I forget I have a replacement as I am totally pain free and mobile. I can hike 10 miles and I am no spring chicken. The operation was in 2007 and is as good as new.
