Patient Comments (1)
in Palm Bay, FL |
Dr. Desai replaced my right hip in 2004 in which he put the cup of the hip in crooked. When asked why I was still having extreme pain, he said that I was over doing it. For 8 years from when he replaced the hip in 2004 until 2012 I was in pain. I finally went to another orthopedic surgeon in which he performed a corrective surgery. Dr. King noted that Dr. Desai put the cup of the hip in crooked causing me to be in extreme pain for the 8 years between the surgeries. STAY AWAY FROM DR. DESAI!!!
