I never saw him after the surgery either. He didn’t explain much about the part he used with for a hip replacement. It did not have good coating and is loose, causing me to need a hip replacement. I’ve been in pain for too long!

Dr LaCognata is patient, thorough, kind, professional, reassuring- I could go on and on. He is a specialists specialist. He fixes what other surgeons screwed up. He made a very big deal as easy as it could have been. ( i do agree his phone/answering system can be a pain-keep trying or hit an ext.)

Well, this is a follow up to the previous review. I finally called the office Monday and spoke to the staff in regards to not being able to reach anyone for 4 days and being in severe pain for 2 of them. The person said “WELL, WHY DIDNT YOU JUST CALL THE DOCTOR ON CALL?” as ifh there was any way to call him. I explained that I did not have any way to contact the doctor, and the home care nurse had no way to contact, and the message on the machine gave no emergency number or on call doctor number

Had a knee replacement done and it has been good so far. A couple issues with the staff though, I never saw Dr Lacognata either after the surgery, during recovery, not the whole 3 days I was in the hospital.he is a very nice Doctor and the hospital staff is very nice and took good care of me. The office staff does not take good care of the phones as I have tried calling for the last 4 days to get meds refilled and although the machine says they return calls same day, I have never received a call

Love Dr. LaCognata! He did right hip replacement in 2015 when I lived in AZ. Moved to MD. In 2017, left hip yelled at me. Feb 2018, saw surgeon in MD, thought "He is NOT Dr. LaCognata!" Called his office, flew to AZ in March for initial consultation, drove 2700 mi. in June for surgery, drove home end of Aug, am back to work walking dogs and driving kids--I am 73. Had awesome surgeon, rehab, home, outpatient PT & I did my part by following Dr.'s orders

Dr Lacognata was a rock during my 3 knee operations. He analyzed my problems and offered and delivered a real solution each time. I would recommend his services for anyone.
