Patient Comments (8)

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 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.
