Took time to ensure that I knew about all my options regarding my knee injury. Once we settled on th surgery he explained everything both before and after the procedure and, again, took his time to make me feel comfortable.

Dr north is very knowledgeable and explains everything very thoroughly. He is very professional and caring. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing hip replacement! In less than 3 months, I was able to walk my daughter down the aisle---at the beach!!

My experience with Dr. North was exceptional. Preparing for inevitable knee replacement surgery, Dr. North provided me with a thourough explanation of the procedure to set my mind at ease. The surgery went well and I am on the road to a smooth recovery with increased mobility and much improved quality of life. Dr. North's assistant Cynthia was also very helpful in providing information to help prepare for the day of surgery and post surgery.

Dr. North performed my bilateral total knee replacement on April 24, 2017. I was amazed at how quickly and easily I recovered and I am 100% satisfied with the results of the surgery. Dr. North was wonderful to deal with and I highly recommend him as a surgeon.

Excellent results with my hip surgery. Dr. North and Henry Ford Hospital were very attentive to my needs and concerns. Dr. North took the time necessary to explain everything in understandable terms. Thanks to all involved, I'm relieved of my arthritis pain and well on the road to recovery after only three weeks from surgery. I have nothing but the highest recommendations for all involved from doctors to nurses to therapists to the crew who cleaned my room.
in Utica, MI |
I had a few appointments with Dr. North prior to my knee surgery and when I met him for the first time I knew he was going to do a phenomenal job on my replacement. I was amazed by the manner in which Dr. North was able to explain to me exactly what was then going on with my knees and how he was going to fix them. I left that visit, and all others that followed, with a sense of calm and ease. He took time for me. He is truly an amazing man and surgeon. I am blessed to have him as my surgeon.
