Dr. Hamilton likes to use the anterior approach with his hip operations. This is a tricky procedure, and it did not work well with my hip. I now have terrible groin pain and cannot lift my leg to get into the car.

Both my anterior hip joint replacements had excellent post op results both in the short and long term. The Mt Vernon Hospital experience was excellent. ??

Dr. William “Bill” Hamilton is AMAZING! I am almost 4 years post-op, from my (anterior-approach) hip replacement surgery and doing very well. Whenever I come across someone that has been putting off their surgery I encourage them to reach out to Dr H. Due to having legg-calve perthes disease, I had my hip replaced at age 28. My only regret is that I did not have it done sooner. For those dreading surgery, please know that Dr H will use the best technology available to get you great results.

I had a total hip arthroplasty done by Dr. Hamilton last year. He used anterior approach and ceramic on ceramic material. Everything went absolutely perfect, I went into surgery at 9am and I was home by 5pm. Today, 6 months later I'm completely pain free and enjoying my life again. Thank you Dr. Hamilton!

Eighteen months ago I saw Dr. Hamilton after enduring extreme knee pain with an artificial knee that was twelve years old. Before he even did an examination he said I needed a total revision. Revision is a major surgery with no guarantee of outcome and up to a year recovery. Decided to try a neurostimulator for pain management, it was implanted 8 mos.ago. Pain totally gone, he never suggested this, only major surgery. Get 2nd opinions before using him for surgery that is his focus
