Absolutely amazing. Total hip replacement. Never one moment of pain. Very small incision. Rapid healing. Caring, concerned doctor. Post surgery care was outstanding. I cannot recommend this doctor highly enough. His entire staff reflected the same care and concern throughout my surgery and recovery.

Dr. Mikulak performed a complete knee replacement on me just 9 days ago. I am 80 years old and was walking the following day ... with NO pain. Today I am still pain free and take Tylenol every six hours ... never took oxycodene ... and my knee has been beunding with no problem. I am grateful to have had Dr. Mikulak and his assistant, Mike, who closed up my incision w/plastic surgery. Not cutting down the front of the leg and through the knee cap made the difference.

Dr. Mikulak uses a posterior approach, but he has refined his technique such that it is minimally invasive, cuts no muscle, and involves very little pain afterward. I have used Tylenol only since the surgery, and the PT says I am ahead of schedule in my recovery. Surgery is usually scheduled within two weeks of the consultation, instead of 2-3 months with other surgeons. There may be other choices which rank highly as well, but Dr. Mikulak and his team are in the elite best few.

I had a knee replacement surgery a couple of weeks ago and wanted the best surgeon available. We live in Rancho Mirage and it was quite a drive to Newport Beach to see Dr. Mikulak. He not only did a beautiful job on my knee, but his bedside manner, his nurses and assistants were all first rate. On the day of my surgery, he did three or four other knee replacements. This is the doctor that has lots of experience.

My knee was so painful from an injury, Dr Mikulak performed a meniscus surgery to clean up the torn tissues and improve the healing. Even was able to see images of the area from during the surgery. Great talented surgeon and genuine caring physician. Healed quickly and exceptionally well, very tiny incision, would never know. Highly recommend Dr Mikulak. His team was excellent, many thanks to all. Do note, it's a busy office, but worth the wait - you will have excellent care.

Just had total hip replacement and couldn't be happier. Dr. Mikulak is a true professional and tremendous at his skill. I am walking with minimal aid only 2 days after surgery.
