He was very professional and knowledgeable. I had a hip replacement and with twelve days of surgery I was walking with a cane. I would recommend Dr. Dunitz.
in Nassau, NP |
Dr Dunitz uses an anterior approach to hip replacement with spinal block anesthesia. This reduces the risk of dislocation and minimizes risks of anesthesia. He was very accommodating to my time situation and was able to get me into surgery in a matter of days due to an opening. I am a flyer and by following PT recommendations faithfully, I was able to get back into the cockpit 4 weeks to the day of surgery. His team is attentive, helpful, and kind.

My entire experience working with Dr. Duniz and St. John's Broken Arrow has been excellent. I would highly recommend him for anyone having knee issues. I am completely thrilled with my "life changing" knee replacement surgeries (left knee 11/15/2016, right knee2/20/2017)

I have worked with Dr. S. Dunitz for 27 years, [great years], my name is John Wimmer, I am the Orthopedic Technician for St. John Medical center. To give credit, for when credit is due, this is the time to do so, Dr. Dunitz has schooled me and educated me with all the skills that I have today. There are other Orthopedic Surgeons that I give my thanks to, Dr. Simmons, Dr. Hood, Dr. Vosburgh, retired, Dr. Dunitz was one of the first Orthopedic Doctors teach me and train me, Thank you, John Wimmer
