Femoral nerve injury sustained during hip replacement. Although this is a known complication of a hip replacement, for one and a half years Dr. Izant told me to be patient that it would self correct and could take up to one year. He told me repetitively that it “always” goes away. 3 years later-no improvement. Pain in left leg 24/7, walk with walker, unable to use stairs due to unstable patella and femoral nerve damage. Research shows 50 percent of femoral nerve injuries do not get better. I was lied to by Dr Izant for over one year at multiple visits. A dishonest surgeon is not where you want to go.

had left hip replaced on 6/19. had exact same surgery on rt hip 5 years ago by different doctor in NJ. (exact same replacement hip). Dr Izant cut 10 inches of muscle during replacement. Doctor who did my right hip cut 4 inches. 6 months later I am still having difficulty with my left hip. It gets numb when standing for period of time and still have slight pain at different times. At first Dr Izant told me it would take 4 months before I could resume rigorous activities. At 4 month check up he said it would take 6 months. At 6 month check up he said it would take a year. 2 months after my right hip replacement I was playing tennis. 6 months after my left hip replacement I'm thinking it will never be the same as my right hip (which is pain free and working great). Dr Izant is a very nice doctor and I think he usually does great work. I think I just got him on an off day and my left hip is paying the price.

Dr. Izant looks at X-rays, but listens to his patients. He explains what he sees in terms one can easily understand. He allows the patient to make their own decisions. I really like how easy it is to speak with him.

I didn't just hit excellent across the board I really have had several (unfortunately since 1998) visits with him and always felt like Dr. Izant spent all the time with me that I required. He answered any questions or concerns I had, as well as his staff. I would recommend Dr. Izant to anyone as he's put me back together a few times with great success.

Up-to-date skilled surgeon; carefully controls operating room, techniques used, staff, recovery unit to minimize infections, errors of any kind. Personable and thoughtful about patient's specific condition and need for surgery. Pre-op experience and experience in hospital with Dr. Izant excellent. However, I saw him little on follow-up visits. Person I did see, perhaps a PA, surgical nurse, listened less well, failed to give me specific information about my recovery symptoms.

We found Dr. Izant to be one of those rare physicians that actually listens and thoroughly answers questions. He took the time to thoroughly explain my situation and plan a course of action. I would recommend him to others without hesitation.
