    Dr Langer performed a surgery on me that he wasn't qualified to perform. He was unprofessional and refused to answer any questions or concerns about my pain weeks later. I would not recommend him to any friends/family.

    Dr. Langer has always provided professional advice and treatment, he truly makes his patients feel VIP, he makes sure he can provide the best treatment and follows up on treatment diagnosed to make sure it is having positive affects.
    Dr Langer performed surgery on my hip. When I went back, he was no longer there and had "disappeared." Went to three other doctors, and it was confirmed that he performed surgery wrongfully on me. Took out the wrong place of my femur and never fixed my labrum (the reason I went to surgery). He cut my IT band and my ilosoias and there was no indication to. I do not recommend this person to my worst enemy nor the worst human beings on earth.

    Dr. Langer diagnosed me with FAI and performed hip arthroscopy. After surgery I was in debilitating pain and unable to walk. Six months later I had to have a total hip replacement. Two surgeons have since reviewed my records and confirmed I never had FAI, Langer shaved my femur in the wrong place and released muscles that should have never been touched. I have met five former patients of his who have had the same issues. Shortly after my surgery Dr. Langer disappeared and the practice went
