What People Say About Dr. Roger Palutsis, MD

Dr. Palutsis replaced both my hips, one in 2004 and the other in 2012. Before both surgeries, I had been in constant pain, with a very noticeable limp. My physical activity was extremely limited. Both procedures were done with his non-invasive method. The minimal scars cannot even be seen today. I have a full range of motion in both hips, and have never experienced ONE SECOND of pain or discomfort. I walk 2-5 miles every day, and work out regularly at the gym. Dr. Palutsis was a lifesaver

Did surgery on my leg and have not been able to walk normally or without pain since. Said I wokeup and grabbed the camera in my leg as later on another doctor found shrapnel or bits of metal scattered throughout the site of the surgery. Which if that is the case why was I not strapped down? Also screwed up a friends carpal tunnel surgery they can no longer independently move some of their fingers. Overall ruined my life by messing up my leg to the point where some days I can not even walk.

From the first day that I met Dr.Palutsis I just knew he was the right doctor for me to have my hip replacement done by. Plus the fact of the extensive work he has done with the 2 incision procedure. He is not only a great surgeon but has a personality , kindness, and feelings above and beyond any other surgeon that I have ever met. I had my hip replaced Nov.16, 2016 and am doing well. I can not beleive that I waited so long. I now have a feeling of having a productive life once again.

Dr.Palutsis is a fantastic Doctor.He is caring,sympathetic,professional,and confident and experienced in his orthopedic surgery. 6 weeks ago Dr.replaced my left hip and this last Wednesday he replaced my right one and with both I stayed over night at alliance community hospital and was walking about 4 hours after surgery and the next day climbed hospital steps before I went home.Recover is pretty easy. His staff at the Carnation clinic are wonderful to work with and always willing to help you.
