I required a complete right hip replacement in May 2016, after 5 yrs+ of constant pain. From the very beginning I felt that Dr Balkissoon really cared...and he REALLY does!! His bedside manner is A+ By following his recommendations, I now have NO PAIN and full freedom of movement, with very few limitations. My husband and I are very happy, no, WE ARE DELIGHTED!! to have found such a competent a surgeon. Highly recommended: 5 stars.
