Had orif surgery open tib fib January 2014. The expertise of the surgeons and the professionalism of the nursing staff was first rate. The nurses really have good professional and people skills their bedside manner was great. Even most of the food was really good!!!!!. This place is the gold standard in orthopedics. I hope never to go back one broken leg is enough for several lifetimes

My physical therapist the day after surgery forcibly knocked me over in bed after me telling her twice I could not extend my right arm the day after an XLIF procedure. The PT staff is very rushed and the PT did not look up at me to see if I was ready, rather she looked at my feet and lifted them up thereby knocking me over in the bed. I felt tissues inside me rip- it felt like I was stabbed and my legs convulsed and shook for several minutes after the incident. Had I not had an IV pain pump, I would have passed out or gone into shock. My narcotic use quadrupled. I have a wad of massive scar tissue underneath my XLIF incision. Never let yourself be alone in this hospital. It was traumatic. The nursing care was slow, I waited on several occasions for 30-45 min for pain meds. After they took my catheter out and I was able to go to the bathroom, they left the urine in the bathroom for hours despite me asking them to empty it.

From the moment my husband and I arrived for pre-op testing to his surgery and aftercare (including but not limited to post-op recovery testing, medical consultations, physical therapy, and hydrotherapy) we have been truly pleased (most of the time) with the caring and the helpfulness of the medical practitioners and staff. Appropriate steps seem to be taken in an organized, efficient manner.

Rated the #1 hospital in the country for orthopedics and I couldn't agree more. Had knee surgery here earlier this year and have absolutely no complaints. Everyone I dealt with...staff, nurses, doctors, etc were all exceptionally nice and helpful. Highly recommended!
