      I am a doc and a patient of Dr. Raterman. I know he is the BEST at what he does A year ago I had to hold onto my car for a couple minutes on exiting it due to excruciating R hip ostroarthritis pain I let go a bit too long. I was often offered wheelchairs at stores by staff. 2- Dr. Raterman performed hip resurfacing on me 2 days before Christmas ( almost 6 mos ago to the day). I now run a mile a day, have no limp , and most importantly chase my fldaughter around the park. Raterman is a legend.

      Following the initial 2 months of predictable pain from the surgery, I continued to have pain every time I rose from sitting! Dr. Raterman continually told me I'm not doing enough exercise. This continued for 2 1/2 years until I got a second opinion, where I found that I have what is considered a failed hip replacement because the installed device never grew into my hip. Dr. Raterman read my x-rays for 2 1/2 years and did not identify this defect, which can only be fixed by redoing this hip!

      I am afraid to go Back to this doctor. 2-3 months after my hip surgery I needed to discuss future plans for my knees. I got the Medical assistant, who apparently was not listening & scheduled me for KNEE THERAPY, making my hip replacement now hurt- it was fine before. Finally seeing HIM for the now PAINFUL hip, he screamed, who ordered knee therapy?! then ordered me to the table, threw up my skirt and opened my legs, with a man -not a nurse-on the computer at the end of the table. -0- stars

      I was going to wait until spring, when we would be home to have surgery,but Dr. Raterman was such a confident and reassuring Dr that I knew he was right to do my surgery. After I made the decision to get it done by him,everyone that I talked to told me that he is wonderful. I am so glad that God led us to him.

      Had my first appointment with Dr. Raterman on Feb 22. We had xrays and discussed my hip problem. I need a replacement. Made an appointment for cortisone shot.on March 22. Had my shot on March 22. Piece of cake. No pain. Dr. Raterman is very straight forward, no bull. I asked three questions, will the shot help; can I have an operation and when? His answers were, absolutely; yes and I don't know. After my shot we made an appointment for an operation on April 27. I couldn't ask for anything more.

      Very knowledgeable and personable, First diagnosed with hip problem two years ago, tried succesive steps before replacement. As a competetive athlete my primary concern was performance, Dr. Raterman took the time to explain options and progression that met my needs. I eventually gave up running and bought another 1.5 years before having to give up cycling, at which point surgery was scheduled. Surgery on 3/14/2016 went as smooth as possible, was surprised to see so little bruising. Very happy.

      Caution. It pains me to be here, but since my right hip replacement, March, 2013, this surgeon mis-diagnosed my post-operative complication, was dismissive of my quest for help, and then abandoned me by 'firing me as a patient' following an diagnosis of my complication by an out-of-state surgeon. This is unethical. I'm amazed at the lack of caring and level of disinterest in helping me after I put my faith in, and fully paid, this surgeon to replace my hip. Where do I go from here?

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
