I had hip reconstruction surgery by Dr Ellis in Feb 2017. My gluteus minimus muscle was 100% torn. Recovery has been on schedule and my hip is improving every day. The staff at Ortho One are very professional and caring.

This doctor is excellent with explaining goals of surgery. Very pleasant, kind, and concerned about successful surgery. Super happy with my new hip and everyone at office!

AMENDMENT TO PREVIOUS COMMENT: The 2nd opinion doc I saw was COMPLETELY wrong and Dr. Ellis was completely right in is diagnosis of a torn labrum on MRI, despite a negative radiologist's report! My sincere apologies! ( A new MRI confirmed this). Although he is brilliant doctor, I would not follow up with him since he did not return my calls and because of the stories I mentioned of complications in other patients.

Dr Ellis is a lifesaver. He is the surgeon you want operating on you. He is very caring and an extremely good Dr. I had been seen by other doctors who knew I needed surgery, but they didn't think they possessed the skill to fix me. They recommended Dr Ellis...that should tell you all you need to know. Other doctors refer to his expertise.

STAY AWAY! Dr. Ellis showed me findings on my MRI that was read as negative. When I called to find out why another radiologist of his choice even read it as negative, he did not return my calls. I met someone he had done a hip replacement on, which is what he said I needed, and she had to have it redone twice. She knew two other people that had complications following hip replacements by Dr. Ellis also. I just got a 2nd opinion. Dr. Ellis' diagnosis and recommendation for me were totally WRONG!

Doctor Thomas Ellis saved my life when I was 28. He performed a Femoral Osteotomy on my right hip 14 years ago while @ OHSU in Portland, OR. I have had very minimal hip pain since the procedure and have resumed most every activity I want to do. Brilliant Doctor and caring individual. If I ever need an Orthopedic surgeon I'll be tracking Doctor Ellis down for sure.
Dr. Ellis knew what was wrong even from me describing my symptoms. Everything he said was verified with an MRI. He did my hip repair surgery when he was with OSU. My recovery was vent smoothly and I have no more issues with my hip. He's amazing!!!!!
