“I think all of the preparation that is done makes hip replacement surgery go smoothly. Every staff member was pleasant and helpful. Dr. Zechmann's skills are amazing! Should we start a fan club? His explanations made me confident of the outcome, so my fears disappeared. Having a pre-surgery class was excellent. My husband was able to attend, so he was more prepared to help me. Having several people going through it at the same time was reassuring. I would (and have) recommended this team to anyone. Thank you all!”
