Dr. Sherman did a Hip Revision on me in 2016 and continues to monitor that and the Hip Revision done by another doctor. He can always be trusted to tell you which treatments and tests are necessary and which are not.

I have the utmost confidence in Dr. Sherman. He has performed two total hip replacements on me. One was because of a botched hip surgery by another surgeon. My recuperation has both been smooth and without problems of any kind. He is knowledgeable and caring and willing to answer any questions I might have.

Finding this physician has been the best experience I have ever had. I thought there was no hope for me. After a failed surgery elsewhere my doctor sent met to him as a second opinion. Unlike others, I had realistic expectations. I was looking for someone to be honest with me and let me know if there was hope to fix my knee. Not only did he tell me the truth but he revised my knee replacement and I can walk without pain again. I knew it wasn't going to be easy but he gave me life back.

I've had 3 knee surgeries, I went to see Dr. Sherman for second opinion. I have never gone to see a doctor and before he examines me,come to a conclusion about what's going on with my knee, that is not loose , that The radiologist doesn't know what they're talking about. After he examined my knee he said that it is loose. I have no confidence in his ability or treatment.

Dr. Sherman is a confident, caring and outstanding physician. I was very pleased with my results after having my hip replaced. He uses the latest technology which reduced time in surgery and made recovery time much faster. I highly recommend him.
