      When I questioned my surgeon why I could not walk dr. hrynkiw came into my hospital room and threw my covers off my bed into the floor, told me to lift my leg, which I did.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
