I am so thankful I found Dr. Goodman. I had hip dysplasia and my hips wore out and I needed to have them replaced at a bit younger age (57 for the left hip, 59 for the second). Before my first hip replacement I could only walk one block. He completely changed my life! He is an excellent surgeon and a warm person. Thank you Dr. G!

Right DX, yet unwillingly to do THR for a 49 YO patient with Dysplasia, FAI and OA. He should retire. Honestly, he told me to live with pain and modify my life more, even though I have been living with significant mobility issues for over a decade. No offer of help other than NSAIDS and PT. He said my “hips were too healthy for replacement?” No MRI ordered. I had successful bilateral replacements at Cedars-Sinai in 2019. Shame on Stanford.

EXCELLENT SURGEON, MY ONLY HOPE IS THAT HE HASN'T RETIRED BEFORE I NEED A HIP REPLACEMENT.

Dr. Goodman corrected another surgeon's total knee replacement in Fresno, CA. I lived with considerable pain for 3.5 years. I also lost my ability to walk safely. My knee was collapsing and as a result, I was falling. Dr. Goodman's talent has given me an entirely new outlook on life. He made the appropriate surgical corrections. My outcome is beyond fantastic. Thank you Dr. Goodman.

I had my hip replacement when I was 26 years old because of Hip Dysplasia. I am much worse than I was before. I believe I was taken advantage of and was forced to have the surgery. I would highly recommend a second opinion. I am very depressed and unhappy with my results.

Dr. Goodman is a world expert and thought leader on materials and mechanics of major joint replacements, especially in the hips. He corrects cases that have been poorly managed. It does take a while to get in for a consult, but once you're in, his office, nurses and residents will take great care of you.
