Lima, LMA |
I had a bad hip from degenerative arthritis. I am very active and the pain and diminished mobility was affecting my lifestyle. Dr. Kreuzer performed a mini-hip replacement in December 2016. Immediately after I was pain free in the joint. In April 2017 I hiked Machu Picchu with friends. In June 2017 I was back playing volleyball - won two tournaments! I am a believer in Dr. Kreuzer and his excellent staff as well as in the procedure.

THE BEST HIP AND KNEE SPECIALIST AVAILABLE !
in Houston, TX |
my hip replacement became infected causing a very traumatic infection leaving me paralyzed with extensing hospital care and additional surgeries.
As we thrive to avoid complications such as these, we are at the merci of the Hospital and there processes to avoid infection. These are very devastating complications but can usually be eradicated and are rarely traced back to a single even or can be contributed to the surgeon. In fact we are a national referral center to treat these type of joint infections as we have a comprehensive care path team for this type of issue.
