Jan 2019 hadTHR surgery byDr Murphy at NEB. I have had root canals that were more difficult and painful. Surgery was 730 am Tuesday Back in room by 1000 am and released next day at noon. Minimum pain. Recovery uneventful. Walking naturally and pain free 10 days. NEB top ortho hospital A+. You will be fortunate if Dr Murphy is your surgeon His office staff is A++,and pre surgery workup easy and efficient. Best of all no pain and I walk naturally .no stiff leg or side to side listing. People could not" believe "I had hip surgery less than a month after. Facing hip surgery,I would do everything possible to have Dr Murphy as my surgeon. He is the best "wrote the book"on minimally invasive hip surgery followed by a few thousand successes!

I researched hip replacement surgery and several recommendations from patients later I went to Dr. Murphy. I am nearly a year post op after a thoroughly successful hip replacement and completely appreciated experience with Dr. Murphy and staff. My family and I feel that this man is God’s blessing.

Dr Murphy replaced my right hip in 2010. He’s replacing my left hip in April of 2018. I’m returning to him because my surgery by him was so successful. His patented minimally invasive approach meant a quick and uneventful recovery. My physical therapists marveled at how fast I recovered. The entire team at New England Baptist is also top notch. I’ve recommended Dr Murphy to quite a few people facing replacement surgery. He is the best in New England.

To make it brief. I've had 2 hip replacements. One 8 years ago by another surgeon. This hip that Dr. Murphy replaced at an extra cost, has given me more problems than the previous hip replacement. I continue to have pain in hip, thigh, buttock and knee. Dr. Murphy seems to care little about the problems and pain I am experiencing post-surgery.

Dr Murphy is an amazing surgeon. He replaced my hip with his minamally invasive surgery using instruments he has designed and has at least 20 patents on them. I swear God flows into his hands during surgery. My first hip replacement elsewhere was a nightmare. Dr Murphys was a miracle. That same night for dinner I enjoyed a delicious bowl of pasta never had a pain and went home the next day was able to take care of myself and my dog. To say this was incredible is putting it mildly.

I have had both my hips replaced by Dr. Murphy. My husband had a very, very difficult hip replacement. When he needed the other done he was fortunate enough to hear of Dr. Murphy and his least invasive hip replacement surgery. His second surgery with Dr. Murphy was so well done and his recovery time was a fraction of traditional replacement . When I needed my hips done...of course I went to Dr. Murphy. You don't have to look any further than Dr. Murphy....the absolute best!

Long wait times for office visits and scheduling. He's a very capable surgeon but is aloof and not easy to talk to. I had 2 total knee replacements with an excellent result on both knees. If he were more personable, I would give him a higher recommendation.
