What People Say About Dr. Stanley Makman, MD

Writing this 4 weeks post-op from total hip replacement via lateral/posterior approach. Chose Dr Makman based on recommendation and was concerned based on mediocre score here. I shouldn't have worried, start to present care was superb from Dr. Makman and staff to crew at Kalispell Regional Hospital where surgery performed. I'm 58 and 2 weeks post op I was walking unaided and driving by week 3. Still following post-op precautions but moving relatively pain free for first time in years. Do it!

Options for arthroscopic hip surgery are limited in Montana, so getting to the office and surgery center is difficult if you don't live in Kalispell. On top of that, they want you to follow up with a 5 minutes office exam after surgery just to get stitches out. Scheduling was a nightmare since I was from out of town and nurses are less than helpful when you call in with post op questions and sound less than enthused to talk to you.
