I'm so pleased with both of my knee replacements. Dr. Long gave me excellent before and after care. Completely trusted him and his team. One surgery done 9/2018 second done 1/2019 and I walking up and down subway steps,buses and walking 20 city blocks without resting. I've lost 30 pounds so far and my range of motion is excellent. Physical therapy is the key and I have done everything I was told. Happy to have my life back. Thank you Dr. LONG and your team.

The left hip replaced by Dr. Long failed within months. After nearly a year of crippling pain and expensive testing he said that he couldn’t determine what was wrong. Thank goodness other doctors could (gross loosening). . Had a revision done just a year-and-a-half later and am feeling much better.

Dr. Long not only is a gifted surgeon, but he is also compassionate and patient with a wonderful bedside manner. I originally came to Dr. Long's office with a knee that was basically shattered. Dr. Long took his time before performing surgery to make sure the fractures were healed. Within weeks of the operation, I was living a normal lifestyle. I highly recommend Dr. Long !

Dr. Long replaced my right hip in April 2017. I am 72. I walked out of the hospital the same day. I had no pain. I was walking distances within a week. I was driving 8 days after surgery. I went to PT regularly for several months. Within 5 months my leg and muscles were perfect.

Dr. Long has treated my whole family. My dad had his second knee replaced at 94 by Dr. Long. Perfect. My wife is having her second hip replacement. First was done by Dr. Long. Perfect. No doubt the second will be any different. My daughter in law had knee surgery and took part in a Tough Mudder one week later. I had torn cartilage. Walked out of the hospital. Perfect. His knowledge, skill, and bedside manner are second to none. Knee or hip issue, see him.

I had a full knee replacement 1yr ago. The joint is working great. Other then developing a bakers cyst behind the surgical knee all went well. Dr Long has a great bed side manner. When my next knee is ready I will definitely be seeing him. I would recommend him to anyone that knees a knee replacement.

Dr. Long has been treating me for several years now, for complicated joint issues. He listens, he is thoughtful, he is smart and kind, and always tuned in to what the patient really wants, and needs. He replaced one of my hips and all is well -- it was a bit complex -- EDS, aggressive RA, fibromyalgia are at work in my condition, plus a history of early dance, acrobatics, sports and gymnastics -- lots of injuries. I recommend him highly.
