So far so good, after three weeks from minimally invasive posterior total joint replacement of right hip. Driving, shopping, using only Tylenol for pain. I know it is going to take time and I don't expect to be really pain free for at least two more months. But every day I get a little bit...more

Dr Lighthart listened carefully me, offered good advice, and was genuinely concerned with the pain I was experiencing. I received two injections from him. This was done in a very practiced, careful way. At the end of the office visit, I was reminded to call with any concerns.
