Sounds like you should be pursuing a disability claim.  Also, you could speak to your previous doctor frankly about your concerns.  
Have they made orthotics for your shoes that distribute your weight better? 

Whoops - I just realized that you may have been looking for Angie's List information on providers outside your home market. To see information on providers that aren't in your home Angie's List chapter, you can elect to pay a small addditional fee (generally about $15 to $20) to add another city's Angie's List to your existing memember.

Hello, this is Kyle K from the Member Care Department.

I apologize for my delay. I apologize, but orthopedic surgeons fall under our Orthopedics category which is included in the Health list. Currently, you're enrolled in our Basic membership which only includes access to our Home list.
If you'd like to upgrade your membership to the Plus or Premium plan, we'll be happy to assist you with this search. If interested, give us a call at 1.888.944.5478 and we'll take care of this adjustment. Again, I do apologize for any misunderstanding.

This is James W. with Member Care. Thanks for posting your question.


It looks like when you signed up online on 8/5/2014, that you accidentally joined our greater Portland chapter instead of our Salem/Corvallis chapter that your zip code falls under. I have transferred your subscription to that chapter, so you will now have access to the correct area.

I hope this information helps! Please let me know if I can assist further. You can respond to this thread or submit a new Answers post. You can also reach us at 1-866-783-2980. We're open weekdays from 8:00 am - 9:00 pm and Saturdays 8:00 am - 5:00 pm ET.


Thanks again!

Hip Replacement reviews in La Jolla


He is probably the best Doctor that I know. He is like the third orthopaedic surgeon I had met for the pain I was having and he was very impressive. I had pain in the knees and not the hips but he was able to make a very good diagnosis. He is very good with the residents and they all think he is fantastic. When he is finished with his surgery, he thanks everybody that helped. He is a very fine man. He explains things very well. When they did anesthesia, he ensured I did not have pain after the surgery. Overall he is excellent. I would use him again in the future.
- Louis G.

He has been awesome! He is courteous and professional. He gave me options and explained everything very thoroughly. I have been very pleased with everything and have recovered very quickly. His support staff is wonderful and helpful. Everyone was very kind and I would recommend them to anyone.

There was very little pain and the job was fantastic. His staff is friendly and understanding to ones needs. He is knowledgeable. I have never waited more than 15 minutes. I would recommend him to anyone.

He was great. Whenever he did a different kind of a surgery or a little different procedure, it worked out really well. He’s one of the few people in the state who does that. I’ve had no complications and no problems with it. I was back to work in about 6 weeks.
- J Paul H.

She’s better, and out and about now. He did a good job and we didn’t have to pay for Medicare. He’s very professional and he seems to be the best at his craft. His staff is very professional and they’re good people. We would probably use him again in the future but we hope not.

He replaced my hip and now I am able to walk baby steps. My leg is now back to its normal length. He's a great man. Nobody should have to go through what I went through, but if you do, you should call Dr.

It was amazing. I didn't realize how handicapped I was as the injury/wear got worse over the last 5.5 years. The replacement itself was handled so well by the hospital staff and Dr
