Patient Reviews

"I have had two successful hip replacement surgeries over an 11-year span, the last one done by Dr. Gill in November 2012.  I was able to walk unaided down the hall after 2 weeks, and go back to doing my yoga class after 2 months! I also got married a month after the surgery, and was able to walk down the aisle unaided! Because of my scoliosis, which must have contributed to the hip replacements, I have had low back pain upon getting up in the mornings, due also likely to progressive osteoarthritis.  I am participating presently at the physical therapy gym at Sierra Pacific Orthopedics, prescribed by Dr. Kasturi, and this has helped considerably to strengthen my core muscles, which support the back." -- Suzanne K.
