I had a total hip replacement completed by Dr Antonacci two weeks ago. He did the anterior approach and I have had very little pain or discomfort. DR. Antonacci and his PA Kaitlyn Georgiafandis explained my procedure and after care and were available for all of my questions and concerns. I highly recommend Dr. Antonacci and his staff. I am grateful for his knowledge of hip replacements and superior care.

Dr. Antonacci always kept me informed and explained things. Took the time to answer all your questions. All in all, he did a terrific job on surgery on my hips. Would highly recommend Dr. Antonacci.
Rockford, IL |
I love the doctor but before he does any operations that he lets you know what your in for afterwards. More Physical therapy would be more beneficial.
Rockford, IL |
I think everyone should do the anterior approach. Recovery is so quick!
Rockford, IL |
Dr. Antonacci and his staff are flawlessly professional. All my questions were answered within a day and each time I was encouraged to call anytime. This alone was greatly reassuring to me. Within nine days of my recent total hip replacement, I was walking comfortably without even a cane. Due to Dr. Antonacci's expertise, I have my life back, no more pain. Without reservation, I recommend the doctor and his staff.
in Davis, IL |
Now that I have your attention let me tell you what he did for me. 8 years without any job, still on food stamps thanks to a botched elbow surgery. Never did elbow before so he contaminated the joint before he put it in causing possible infections and 2 more weeks in the hospital. Sent home with literally no elbow in the arm at all. Since they wrapped the elbow WAY TOO tight it killed what nerve I had left in the arm. This was ignored by all the nurses and the doctor. Still have no feeling in it
Lena, IL |
Having had years of pain from an arthritic hip I can't adequately describe the benefit I have received from my hip replaced. Dr. Antonacci operated on my hip in March and one month later I was visiting relatives in South Korea. The flight, walking around Seoul, and all related activities presented no challenge. I am now pain free for the first time in nearly a decade thanks to Dr. Antonnaci's expertise with the anterior total hip replacement procedure.
in Rockford, IL |
Complete hip joint replacement two weeks ago, and I'm up and driving and living my life already. While he doesn't really say too much, Dr. Antonacci is an exceptional surgeon. Worried about my inability to take pain medication, he did everything within his power to mitigate the pain from surgery, to the point where I wouldn't have even needed pain pills. He gets an A+++ from me.
in Beloit, WI |
I am so pleased with the results of my anterior hip replacement surgery with Dr. Antonacci. I was released from the hospital day after surgery and went back to work part time two days later. Physical therapy is crucial after this surgery. It is wonderful to be pain-free now! I highly recommend Dr. Antonacci and this minimally invasive approach to hip replacement. His staff is excellent and very supportive.
in Loves Park, IL |
I was fast-tracked for a hip replacement, so I chose the first available appointment and somehow lucked into Dr. Antonacci. He uses an anterior approach that had me on my feet after the surgery and home the next day. I'm 65 and never spent a day in a rehab facility. The nursing staff and social services followed me along the way, and rehab was hard work, but I made a full recovery.
in Freeport, IL |
In January of 2016, Dr Antonacci performed my total hip replacement surgery. I was unsure which doctor to chose to perform this surgery and through networking, in a very short time, I learned Dr Antonacci came highly recommended by several people. I was looking for a doctor who had a lot of experience with the anterior approach to hip replacement. He answered all of my questions to my satisfaction and took every precaution to avoid complications. I am very happy with my outcome.
in Rockford, IL |
Dr. Antonacci is professional, business-like, yet friendly and kind. I felt complete assurance when speaking with him and when he discussed my hip issue. His expertise with the surgery and the recovery was amazing. I am so glad my PCP recommended me to Dr. Antonacci. The hip replacement experience this time, compared to the last time some years ago with another doctor, was like night and day. I feel wonderful and hopeful for my future.
in Poplar Grove, IL |
Dr. Antonacci did an excellent job on my hip. The procedure went as planned. I was out of the hospital in less than 24 hrs. After two and a half weeks, I was back to work with a cane. I did not feel any pain the whole time I was going through this. I would highly recommend Dr. Antonacci. He is an excellent surgeon.
in Rockford, IL |
Very satisfied with his work my hip is wonderful. Its been one month since my surgery and I almost forget I've had it done. I can't say enough good about it!
in Dixon, IL |
Dr. Antonacci did an anterior total hip replacement for me on Dec 16, 2015. I had a hip replacement on the other side in 2001 (the old way, by another Dr.), so I had something for comparison. While the first replacement has been trouble free, I remember that recovery as being quite a drawn out process! I'm amazed at how much more quickly I've been able to recover with this procedure! I think it's wonderful that we have Dr. Antonacci in Rockford, IL!
