Dr Sciortino operated on my hip with the SuperPath method..everything worked out wonderful! I was an out patient and was home the same evening walking up stairs! My recovery time was three weeks...Thank you Dr Sciortino for your services and I have been highly recommending you to others who may need you. I had my hip replaced two years ago and no complications..i was 60 yrs old..

Hip replaced via Superpath nearly 3yrs ago @ 55. Plagued w chronic pain/inflammation since. Same response @every follow up: “The x-rays look fine.” 2nd opinion (teaching surgeon @ Wash. U) said in his focus on hip alignment Sciortino overlooked something fundamental: legs are diff lengths, & the unit was too long, causing overstretch/pain. Sciortino disputed it, but had no answer, and moreover wouldn’t even call Dr2 to discuss. All ego. I doubt I’m the only 1 w issues requiring a re-do surgery.

Had a hip replacement 8 years after a similar surgery on my other hip by another surgeon. Twice as much pain and less speedy return of functionality. I see no benefit to his Superpath method.

i Had Super Path Hip Replacement at 7:30 am on May 31, 2017. I left the hospital the next day on June 1, 2017 walking on a walker. June 3, walked with a cane and resumed my daily bike rides. June 6, I quit using a cane and drove my car. Bottom line, I've had little to no pain and my activity level increases with each passing day. I thank God that Dr. Sciortino chose to go to the effort and expense of obtaining the training for SP to help his patients. The results are truly remarkable.

Dr. Sciortino did a total hip replacement on me using the superpath technique on 12/16/15. The next day I was walking around Schnucks with my walker feeling no pain. In two days I was using a cain; and by Christmas, I was walking without the cain. People can't believe the quick and painless re-hab. The office, the hospital, and the doctor were great.
