Dr. Fitzgerald explained everything he would do and was sure I was comfortable and understood the procedure. I just felt I could trust him to do the best for me and he did. I’m out of pain , walking and still have my leg which is the best part. No I can’t run and jump but that’s ok a lot of people can’t . Thank you Dr. I am 100% better because of you.

I would and have recommended Dr. Fitzgerald. Him and his team are amazing! I had a very slow recovery but they have been on top of getting me to a full recovery. He is an excellent doctor, he listened to my concerns, and really gives me good responses. I really felt comfortable with him and his staff.

I'm extremely happy with the work Dr. Fitzgerald did for me. He replaced my left hip and then my right a few months later. He and his team are exceptional and a delight to work with.

Dr. Fitzgerald took the time to talk with me during my initial visit with him as we discussed my need for a hip replacement. He answered all my questions about pre-surgery class and post surgery therapy. My recovery was remarkable. I no longer needed pain medication after 10 days. By 4 weeks I was off the walker and on a cane. By 6 weeks I was off the cane. At 12 weeks I am 99% back to normal.

I have had both hips replaced by Dr. Fitzgerald. They are doing great and I have absolutely no pain. If you do what you are supposed to do, exercises, you should have no problem. I would do it again with Dr. Fitzgerald as the surgeon.

Dr. Fitzgerald and his staff provided excellent care for me in my left knee replacement surgery, and at my pre and post-op appointments. I am extremely satisfied and will be having my right knee done in June.

My experience was excellent. I had minimal pain. The surgery will go well providing the patient follows the dog's and donor's. This is very important. Dr. Fitzgerald's team was very very professional and at the same time warm & friendly. I recommend Dr. Fitzgerald as the surgeon for this procedure 100%. I wish there were more Doctors and staff with the bed side manner they have. I have returned back to work and very pleased about the outcome. Quality of life is much better after hip replacement

I am very pleased with Dr Fitzgerald and the knee surgery he performed on me. It was the best decision I ever made to have a new knee. I walk better now than I have in years. I felt very confident with him and his expertise. I will keep him in mind for my other knee if needed. I highly recommend Dr Fitzgerald and Ahuja Medical Center in Beechwood, Ohio for a pleasant experience in surgery and in follow up care. Thank you

Dr. Fitzgerald was the first doctor to factually and realistically discuss my issues, and the first to suggest a type of treatment that has greatly, in a very short time, helped my condition. Cannot understand why other doctors did not suggest this treatment, and really appreciate Dr. Fitzgerald taking the time to understand and provide usable information. Great listener, factual and to the point. Does not tell you what you want to hear, tells you what you should hear. Very pleased.
