Dr. Bhargava did two hip replacements for me 7 weeks apart My hips me give me no pain and do not limit me in any activities! I would highly recommend him. Using his method (going thru the front) hastens the recovery time. I was playing 18 holes of golf 3 months after the last surgery!

Dr. Bhargava is extremely knowledgeable, get bed side manor, he informed me, in great detail, about the total hip procedure. I went into surgery feeling well informed and confident. I highly recommend this Dr. and his staff.

Did not listen to complaints of pain after a partial knee replacement. Laughed when I said it was hurting all the time. Went to another dr who had to do a total replacement.
in Wichita KS |
Horrible ability to interpret x-rays! Blew me off after he did not cement my knee prosthesis in completely. Had to have a completely new knee replacement by another competent physician.
in Wichita, KS |
He treats you like an assembly line! Blew me off when I continued to have knee pain after he replaced my knee! Got a second opinion and was diagnosed with loosening of the prosthesis. Dr. Bhargava was shown the very same x-rays the second opinion doctor saw and he missed the diagnosis! Had to have my knee redone! Do not go to him!

I am a retired RN having worked 49 years. 20 of those years in surgery @ a Level 1 Trauma center in Dallas, Texas. Having done an enormous amount of orthopedics cases I find Dr. Bhargava to the best in his field in Wichita Kansas probably the entire state. He did my bilateral total knee replacement and a fracture rt. fibula. His care is OUTSTANDING. His office staff is also OUTSTANDING.

He doesn't follow up with clients has his ARNP Jared do follow ups and I was miss diagnosed by his ARNP ,was told on my 6 week post op appointment on my RTNR that I needed both my hip replaced . Surgery was set and then I guess over 2 months later he decide to personally look at my X-rays and was told no surgery was needed. I was relieved but was devasted for over 2 months and dealt with hip pain .I got another opinion and help on my pain and will NEVER GO BACK ! I have no faith or trust !

I had a total hip replacement a month ago. Less than a week after surgery I did not use a walker or cane. I walked over a mile the first week and now 3.5 miles per day. All of the other people I've met with hip replacements used some sort of walking device for a few weeks. The anterior approach is wonderful. Less evasive better for a speedy recovery. My scar looks incredible almost like a scape instead.

I am having a LTKR on June 16th. I am impressed with his knowledge and experience in the field.

Had anterior THR and contracted the MRSA infection that resulted in long term complications. One rare complication called heterotrophic ossification could have possibly been prevented had he kept a closer watch on my progress and been proactive in my care. He made me feel like I was a major inconvenience to him. Stuff happens, but how you respond and recover defines you. He falls way short in my opinion. 10 months post surgery at this time. Still have difficulty walking and severe pain.

In my opinion only doctor and staff are important. If I could do it over I would not have had the surgery.
