Dr. Ihekweazu is a gifted and most extraordinary Orthopedist. I had a knee replacement nine weeks ago and all is well. The scar is hardly noticeable and I have been able to walk without any assistance. He explains the procedure to you, is always mindful of your needs, and has an incomparable bedside manner. I would recommend him to anyone needing hip or knee replacement surgery.

He was thorough with me and my son in his explanation of my upcoming hip surgery and the aftercare that will be needed for my recovery. I had a good feeling when I left the examination. Also, his staff was very professional. Thank you Dr I

Was very direct and informative regarding my bone on bone knee problem. Post op check was quick & was happy with my progress , now allowed to drive 2 wks after knee replacement. Asked if I need any refills & I replied yes to one of the three non narcotic prescriptions . Never called it in. PT is intense as well as my home exercises. They cause terrible shooting pains thru knee area after workouts which my pain & neuritis meds don't help at all with. Called to remind them 5 days after our visit . I still put a 100 % on the scale. Yes I would refer Dr.Ihekweazu I feel he is very qualified & will attain a good MO as his experience continues.

Dr. Ihekweazu is the very best. I cannot thank him enough for taking such good care of me and giving me my life back. I was in constant pain that was almost unbearable and now I am 100% better. I had been to many doctors prior to seeing Dr. Ihekweazu and none of the doctors were able to diagnose my problem. I have already recommended this doctor to several of my family and friends. Thank you, Timothy McNabb

Dr. Ihekweazu is a good surgeon. My TKR experience after 2 weeks has been really good with recovery progress beyond my expectations. An added advantage is that Dr. Ihekweazu is cheerful, friendly, positive, and clear in his explanations and other interactions with his patients.

Dr. Ihekweazu was recommended by a friend who had him do a knee replacement and had wonderful results. After having the same results, I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a knee replacement. I have no doubts that if I need work on the other knee, Dr. lhekweazu and his staff will be my first stop.
