Delayed having hip replacement for fear of extended recovery period. Dr. Hayek proved my fears unfounded as he performed the hip replacement via the anterior (front) method which proved to be minimally invasive with little pain and quick recovery period. I would certainly recommend the procedure and Dr, Hayek to anyone needing a hip replacement.

I had problems with both knees and my right hip. I had put off doing anything until I heard from others about Dr. Hayek. Had I known how well the surgeries would go I would have had them much sooner. I was especially amazed at the rapid recovery from the anterior hip approach. I was able to do things within a month after that I had not been able to do for years.

I am 70 years old and had problems with both hips. Dr. Hayek performed front anterior hip surgery on my right side on March 24th and my left side on July 13th. He was very honest and an excellent surgeon. I m no longer in pain and back to walking 40 to 50 minutes a day. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an orthopedic surgeon.

I first met Dr Hayek about 6 years ago when I broke my ankle in several places. Thanks to his expert surgical skills I have full range of motion in that ankle. In the last year he did a total knee replacement and I have had no issues. He takes the time to answer all questions and discussing options. He treats you like you are an intelligent person and always kind and courteous

Dr. Hayek has been my physician for 15+ years. I have seen him for a variety of issues: broken wrist, tendonitis, knee pain. In my experience he is very knowledgeable about orthopedics. He takes the time to explain treatments he is recommending, laying out the pros, cons, and alternatives. In one instance I had a terrible tendonitis in my foot from a running injury. I could barely walk around, but wanted to be able to walk and run again. He recommended an injection to help calm down the inflammation. He went on to explain the process, benefits and the risks. I was reassured that he had fully considered my problem and was committed give me the appropriate treatment. The injection helped greatly and provided a quick recovery. I would strongly recommend Dr. Hayek to friends and family.

I had the arthroscopic surgery performed on my knee about 10 yrs. ago. Initially, I was not going to write a review, but when I saw that Dr. Hayek was rated #1 surgeon in Chicago, I had to mention my own horrible experience with regards to this surgery. First of all, while the surgery was performed, there was a bump on the outside of my right knee which he promised to remove during the surgery. Unfortunately, he did not keep his promise & the bump plagues me to this day. After the surgery I experienced great pain & this Doctor would not see me until 1 1/2 mos. later. His response to my complaint of excessive pain was "Don't worry, in a few years you can have a knee replacement & you'll be as good as new." I cannot believe this response by a certified Orthopedic Surgeon. A few years later a friend of my recommended another Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Patek & he along with Prolotherapy, substantially improved my condition. I was very disappointed in my outcome with Dr. Hayek.
