Patient Comments (3)
Manchester Center, VT |
I HAD A POSTERIOR TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT. DR, LIGHTHART IS VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE, INTENSE, VERY CARING,VERY WELL TRAINED, AND IN GENERAL EXCEPTIONAL. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE NEEDEING AN ORTHOPAEDIC SPECIALISTS.
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 stronger. I put this off for over three years and I really had to do it. No complaints. You see the PA a lot more than Dr. Lighthart but I'm sure that is the most efficient use of his time.
in Dorset, VT |
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.
