After 1.5 years of pain and chiropractors, acupuncturists, a different Ortho doc, myofascial release etc... no one was able to diagnose and permanently relieve my pain until I fortunately found Dr. Palmer by simply Googling hip specialists in my area. Every detail of the process and procedure were explained by him and by the material provided by his staff and the outpatient facility where the out-patient surgery takes place. I knew what to expect. Dr. Palmer was very pleasant, didn't waste time, but lets you ask questions you may have. I'm now 2 months post-op and feel amazing! Actually, I felt great right after surgery. Back to gym activities and riding my motorcycle pain free! Still a little stiff the first few steps after sitting a while, but then good as gold! Highly recommend Dr. Palmer. I told him he can't retire until I'm gone! LOL! He truly is the best!
