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.
