dr. louis and his team are very professional, efficient, and nice. I had both hips replaced a little over a year ago and couldn’t be more pleased with the result. He is very personally involved in your treatment and care. I can’t recommend him highly enough.

I researched and was blessed to have found Dr. Louis as I had been turned down by two physicians in Iowa due to my weight. His approach is anterior which is less invasive and offers a quicker healing time. He listened to my story and told me the only option was replacement of my left hip. I cannot express the fantastic care I received with Dr. Louis and his staff and all throughout my hospitalization. I am three weeks post op and for the first time in 2 years I do not even require a pain pill.

Dr Louis' stunning expertise in bi lateral hip surgery has given me back my life! I am constantly amazed by how quickly and easily I have healed. In just two weeks I am able to move better than I have moved in two years. To me Dr Louis' work is a genuine miracle!

I would highly recommend Dr. Louis to anyone who is considering a hip replacement. I have just had my second replacement done. Last year I did my right hip and this year I did the left one. The recovery has been as expected. He stays in constant contact post-surgery. He also has a wonderful sense of humor. His entire staff is caring. The office staff is friendly.

Dr. Louis is truly a world-class surgeon. He did both of my mom's hips. A month away from 76, she was able to walk within 4 hours of surgery and was discharged out of the hospital at 25 hours from surgery! Pretty amazing. Dr. Louis is a very passionate surgeon, highly, highly skilled, and extremely ethical. You will find no better. Plus, he's compassionate! If you want the best, then Louis is your doctor. No questions about it! We adore him!

I can't tell you how pleased I am with the results of my hip replacement completed by Dr. Louis. He and his team are tops. He was well worth the waiting in getting my surgery scheduled. Several other patients I know had the same experience.

I suffered with pain in my hip for many years and the past couple have been severe. I put a replacement off for too long. I saw a couple of surgeons but was not happy with them. I wanted a surgeon that performed the anterior procedure, had a good and caring personality and was affiliated with a top rated hospital that is easy to get to. I was so excited when I went to see Dr. Louis and am so happy that he performed my surgery. I felt so much better even the same day of my surgery! He's great!

I feel that I am progressing much faster than I anticipated. I can pretty much do everything I could do prior to surgery, because of Dr. Louis' no restriction program, and his Anterior method. The pain I felt at times before surgery was worse than anything after surgery. Every healthcare professional I spoke to said that Dr. Louis' patients all progressed faster than most other doctor's, and all said that, if they, or a family member needed this surgery, they definitely would go to him.

Dr. Louis performed an arthroplasty on my left hip on March 13th. Dr. Louis and staff were friendly and helpful from the very beginning despite my many issues with my insurance and surgery clearance. Dr. Louis has a great sense of humor which helped put me at ease through the whole process. I am on the mend and am satisfied with the excellent level of service and care I received from Dr. Louis and his team.

I have had the very best experience with Dr. Louis and his team. He is very easy to talk to and takes the time to explain the procedure in as much detail as needed. His experience as trauma surgeon, his passion for the anterior approach to hip replacement and his long experience with this procedure made him the perfect fit for my situation given I have some hip dysplasia. His office is easy to work with and his staff are dedicated friendly and very clever.

I would recommend Dr. Louis to anyone who needs a hip or knee replacement. He listens to you and genuinely cares about you and your concerns. He does his job and doesn't sound like a salesperson trying to sell you on something you may not even need. There is not enough words to describe how happy I had chosen him for my hip replacement . Absolutely love him and his team!

Dr Louis took the time to listen, then fully explained my hip deterioration in a new light, after many years of appointments with various doctors, chiropractors. I was looking for understanding what was causing my increasing hip pain, options, and a doctor I could trust. Dr Louis' decades of experience, anterior approach to hip replacement, exteremely low infection rate, solid care and recovery, and caring personality were key to my choosing him for my hip replacement surgery.

Dr. Louis is professional, courteous and answered all my questions from initial exam, pre-surgery and after surgery. His anterior bilateral hip arthroplasty is a miracle procedure. Less invasive, less painful and rehab time minimal. I am two weeks post surgery and already almost pain free performing most every day functions in my home. Looking forward to the o.k. To drive soon. I especially like the daily posts from Dr. Louis asking questions and checking on my progress. Response time is immedia
