Several weeks ago I wrote a review for Dr. Schutzer based upon my experience with him and his staff during pre surgery visits. Now that the surgery is over I am even more grateful to him. My hip replacement was a success. I can hardly believe that I am pain free. Ellen Buda

2 weeks ago, I had a total right hip replacement. I am in awe of the work of art I saw on my recent X-Ray, I am walking and recovering very well. Dr. Schutzer treated me with extreme care and the utmost clarity. All of my family and neighbors are surprised how well I am walking

Curious that you waited two years to write this. Money has never been a motivating factor in surgical decision making. I do not prescribe PT for the majority of my Total Hip patients because most elect to do their rehabilitation independently. For those with profound weakness, I use PT but wait at least 6 weeks post-surgery to allow safe healing and not risk complications. If you are having problems it has NOTHING to do with not having PT two years ago. Make an appointment I bet I can help.
