I have now had both knees replaced (at the same time) and one hip replaced by Dr. Hayek. Admittedly, the hip done by anterior approach was "a piece of cake" by comparison, but I am now able to go back to my more normal activities. Dr. Hayek is not only an excellent surgeon, he loves his profession and he takes time to explain and to listen. I have alreaady recommended him to my sister-in-law who just had both her knees replaced.

Dr. Hayek performed an arthroscopic procedure on my shoulder after a car accident I had and also did a total shoulder replacement on my husband. He is extremely intelligent and honest about the best ways to go about finding a solution to your problem. Knowledgeable and trustworthy and well skilled as a surgeon. Let's face it - surgery is scary to many of us, but Dr. Hayek explains to you exactly what to expect and I am happy to say that my husband and I both are very satisfied with our outcomes.

I had a hip replacement in March of 2016 and my recover was excellent with minimum pain(basically just from the incision healing). He made sure I definitely wanted to do the surgery before I went through with it. I am a tile setter and was back to work in 9 weeks ( he did recommend me not going back for an additional 3 weeks) but it was feeling good. I am now 100% again and get around and enjoy life without any pain in my hip

MY EXPERIENCE WITH DR.HAYEK WAS VERY PROFESSIONAL IN THAT HE IS A NO NONSENSE DOCTOR THAT GETS RIGHT TO THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM WITH HIS KNOWLEDGE IN THE FIELD AS A ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON. HIGHLY WOULD RECOMMEND HIM
in Palatine, IL |
Dr. Hayek was my second opinion for hip replacement surgery. He put me at ease right away and recommended the anterior approach for a quicker recovery. I could tell that he really wanted to help me get out of pain get back to being active. The surgery went well and I was walking with a walker 2 hours after surgery. He was wonderful with my family too. I just had my 3 month visit and he was happy to see how well I progressed. I am now back to golfing without pain! I highly recommend Dr Hayek
in Park Ridge, IL |
Dr. Hayek is an excellent surgeon. He is a no nonsense, get it done and let's get healed kind of doctor. He is knowledgeable, efficient, and is a doctor who does the anterior approach of hip replacement. He is to be lauded for his terrific work and I would highly recommend him to anyone needing replacements. his staff is great and he makes everything so easy.
in Chicago, IL |
My 95 year old mother had a knee replacement 6 years ago and she still does not need a walker or cane. We just went back for another appointment regarding pain in the hand. This too was resolved. He takes the time to listen & explain his plan for the treatment. He understands that mom needs the answer to be slow & clear. He does this with great patience.
in Harwood Heights, IL |
Dr. Hayek performed a hip replacement on me via the anterior method and I would recommend it to anyone facing hip replacement surgery. The discomfort was minimal and recovery time was extremely short. Had I known that the entire process would be so quick and painless I would not have waited as long to have the surgery.
