Dr Klapper gave me the confidence to move ahead with surgery. His emphasis on preconditioning in advance of surgery became clear once I started trying to get around on crutches and walker and get in and out of beds, chairs etc. Surgery experience could not have been better.

There were really no surprises. The pre-operative and post-operative information through GetWell Loop, and the office's availability to answer questions made me much more calm about the entire experience. And of course, I have 100% confidence in Dr. Klapper's surgical skill and that of his team.

They don't get any better than Dr Klapper. Not only does he have the most healing and caring bedside manner, he is an adept surgeon, inventor and sculptor. I had both of my hips replaced by him last fall and by February I healed enough to win another world aerial championship in Europe. I couldn't have done this without his expertise. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Easy to talk to. Very knowledgeable. Not surgery happy. When I had a hip problem at age 65 he tested me and said all I needed was physical therapy. He was right. Physical therapy cured my hip problem.

Dr. Klapper did both of my hip replacements. I had AVN and was in tremendous pain when I first saw him. Thanks to his excellent care, my hip pain abated, and I recovered very well.
