Ratings for Dr. Paul S. Lux
I had a knee replacement in 2015 by Dr Lux & he had to do a revision of it in 2017. I went back to him recently due to some same recurring issues again. After his 1 second exam of my knee he said' it's scar tissue-again. I don't operate a 3rd time on a knee. ' I am left with an only partially functional knee because he doesn't want to ruin his surgery "statistics". His opinion was I needed to go to Pain Management MD. Poor choice of MD on my part, with bad outcome.
I went to Dr Lux in 2004 for a THR , I was very pleased with the outcome the only thing lacking was some of the office staffs better than you attitude . So when it was time for me to have a TKR I did not hesitate to go back to Dr. Lux . This experience was totally different . One of my main concerns besides the pain was how crooked my leg became , I expressed this to Dr. Lux and he promised me that he could straighten my leg out !! Not at anytime did he mention that I waited to long or that there might be a chance that he could not achieve this !!!! I went through all the physical therapy as instructed , my leg is still crooked and very noticeable to the point I am even more conscience of it after going through the long hall of the surgery which is a lot more intense than a THR . I am considering a second opinion now and I am very disappointed in the outcome , I do not feel I have quality of life back . And at the time which was in 2014 his office staff has gotten worse they treat you like second class citizens and there is no compassion . Frank Dr. Lux right hand man told me at one of my visits after the surgery that they could fix my knee but not my brain ! I discussed this with Dr. Lux and he laughed . I do not know what has happened to Dr. Lux and his staff but they are not what they once were . I struggle emotionally everyday because of this and I am so sorry I went back to him I have lost all trust and respect for him and his office . To think now that I may have to go to someone else to fix his botched up surgery makes me sick . I did read one bad review before I had my TKR and mentioned it to Dr. Lux and he responded people can right anything and there can always be a bad review it means nothing !!!! No I would not recommend him !!!!!
Had many questions to ask , Dr.Paul Lux were very professional . Plus I'm looking for a doctor who will take time to answer questions . I have several surgeries , I'll need and I'm looking for a doctor who's cares for his patients . Not rush and leave with out answers .
I am from New Orleans and was in need of a hip replacement around the time of Hurricain Katrina. After the storms most of the good doctors moved away and it was hard to find a doctor or hospital that I felt comfortable performing my surgery in New Orleans. I have a sister in St. Louis who knew of Dr. Lux and arranged for me to see him there when I visited her. I immediately felt comfortable with Dr. Lux and a month later he replaced my hip. The surgery was at Barnes Jewish West County Hospital and the staff was great. I only spent 2 nights in the hospital and walked the afternoon of surgery. I spent another week with my sister and then returned to New Orleans to fully recover. It took about 6 weeks to heal completely. I was recently back in St. Louis for my 5 year check up and everything is perfect!!. I can't thank Dr. Lux and his staff enough for the great care they gave me during that difficult time in my life!!
Dr. Lux was spectacular ! I researched several doctors before I chose him to do my knee replacement. I was impressed with his experience, his reputation, & his demeanor. He was such a skilled surgeon ! The procedure did not hurt nearly as much as I thought it would & I rehabilitated beautifully. I did better than all of my friends that had knee replacement elsewhere. I could not possibly be any happier. Dr. Lux is wonderful !
Dr. Lux has replaced both of my hips over a four year period. He is a fantastic surgeon and very warm, attentive Dr. Recovered from both hips very fast and have had no problems. He always was great about answering questions & concerns. Dr. Lux was very professional. He took his time to address any concerns and answer any questions. His staff was very welcoming and friendly; Dr. Lux would sit down and describe in detail the findings, so the results were understood. I would highly recommend Dr. Paul S. Lux to future patients.
I selected Dr.Paul S.Lux after interviewing several doctors. I originally thought I wanted a female doctor for my daughter joint replacement surgeon but interviewed him after a good recommendation from a friend. I have been impressed with his medical skill and his bedside manner.
