Fantastic results... I'm about 12 weeks post-op and I'm almost back to all normal activities. I'm convinced that the recommended walking therapy was the secret for me. I'm now walking 2-3 miles a day... might not sound like much but I'm not normally a walker.... and now my dog gets tired before I do. :-). Thank you so much Dr Schutzer you gave me back my active life! For anyone contemplating having total hip replacement - this is the guy to go too.

I found that each visit to Dr. Schutzer to be a pleasant experience from the very first time that I limped into his office in Glastonbury seeking advice and help to each additional visit which resulted in two knee replacement surgeries. Dr Schutzer is a very friendly professional who took the time to explain all that mattered. I became quite calm with his approach to fixing my wrecked knee's, especially the last robotic surgery. I Highly recommend Dr. Schutzer, Sharon and his excellent staff.

I am in healthcare and have work with many physicians and surgeons in all specialties through out my career. I had a total left hip replacement with great results. No more restriction in movement or pain. Dr Schutzer is the best. He defines skilled, high quality, compassionate care. He and his team listen and focus on a post operative care plan that meets your individual needs and expedites recovery. They are caring, compassionate and truly are the BEST.

Great results. Sounds like the person complaining about no PT is a little lazy. Dr. S was right, walking was the best for rehab

I had total hip replacement on June 27 2018. I was amazed that I didn't need any pain meds. I was released the next day. On Friday the 29 I walked 1.5 miles in the morning and 1.5 miles in the evening. I am totally amazed. He told me my pt is walking, so I walk. I couldn't ask for a better Dr, totally amazing.

In 2017, I had both hips replaced six weeks apart. Dr. Schutzer and his CJRC team did an amazing job on both of them. Great communication throughout - brief hospital stay (1 day) each time - excellent follow-up. Compassionate care in a truly superior facility that has the orthopedic surgery process refined nearly to perfection, while believing it can always be just a little better. 100% recommendation - na make that 110%

I have had left knee replacement surgery in 2015 with fantastic results. Recently I had a total right hip replacement with again fantastic results. Dr Schutzer and Sharon Hull are the best. Caring supportive and always answer your questions. They are also very cautious with procedures, infections and the overall health of their patients. They have given me my freedom back to do all the things I have been able to do for years. Thank you all ?? Maryrose Boulanger
