I understand Dr. Morris has fine credentials and I'm not questioning that. I AM relaying my personal experience with his procedure however and it wasn't great. My first total right knee arthroplasty was not to my satisfaction; one year post op I still have stiffness, my gate is a little skewered and I feel like I've a permanent rock in my knee. This, despite devoted, daily exercising and rehab and good health. And I've had more than one health professional tell me the knee seems like it's not aligned properly. Fast forward to the present: I've had my second knee done via minimally invasive total arthroplasty and only 4 days post op - - I'm walking without a cane. Previously, I was still using a walker after 2 weeks, a cane thereafter and considerable medication, and now, only a few tylenol when needed. The difference is stark and like night and day. So for what it's worth, I would say consider a second opinion and look at the current cutting edge techniques. One need not be deterred by the standard explanation I received that 'there's not enough proof' concerning minimally invasive knee surgery. Because even if this type of surgery doesn't last as long as the highly invasive type - which is grueling - I would easily undergo the new procedure multiple times over if necessary, vs the old, no problem. One word of caution: be sure any surgeon you are considering is highly qualified and has done many of these types of surgeries. Good luck!

He did not read my medical history and gave me diet advice that would have harmed me. I need to be on a low fiber diet for Crohn's and a high carbohydrate diet for a rare blood disorder. He told me to cut all meat and carbohydrates out of my diet, and eat fresh fruit and vegetables and beans. Both my Crohn's and porphyria would have put me in the hospital. When I tried to explain this to him, he would not listen and thought I was making excuses. He said my hip did not need to be replaced yet. I went to another surgeon who replaced it immediately.

I was extremely impressed with Dr. Morris 's experience, knowledge and candor about the hip replacement process. I vetted him thoroughly and he is top in his field. Very introspective by nature, don't let this throw you off. This man is the best. You want laughs, rent an Adam Sandler movie

I went to Dr. Morris to see about total knee replacement in my right knee. I am a plus-sized older woman. Dr. Morris was very unfriendly right from the moment he entered the room. He looked like he had a hangover. I told him of my extreme knee pain. He told me I was too fat for the surgery and I would have to lose weight or he wouldn't operate. I told him of my lifelong history of diets failing me. He became insulting and belittling and told me he wasn't going to ruin his good record by operating on me because he knew it (the operation)would fail because of my weight. I left his office in tears and went to another doctor at another hospital who performed the operation and NEVER mentioned my weight and that was in 2009 and this is 2012. I'm pain free and running around like a kid again. Dr. Hugh Morris is bigoted against fat people, so if you're fat, stay away from him...He is mean spirited and nasty...and should not be a doctor.

Good office, good practice. The Doctor is knowledgable, but cold as ice. Probably skipped the bed side manner class of medical school.

 |  Hip replacement 3/20/2011  |  show details

I cannot speak highly enough about Dr. Morris and his expertise. He performed my hip replacement 7 weeks ago and the results have been incredible! His skill, experience and knowledge are first rate. He carefully evaluates you and your lifestyle and plans from there what type of implant to use. I received a 42mm ball which is large and affords maximum flexibility. His experience enables him to stabilize the joint area, permitting rapid recovery. I had no muscles cut during the process. Dr. Morris does not use the relatively new minimally invasive techniques that have been developed, so don't expect that. My recovery results though were fast! Now, 7 weeks after surgery, I am free of using a walker or cane, I swim 40 minutes every day and take multiple long walks. In short, he has given me my life back! I would recommend Dr. Morris to anyone needing hip or knee replacements. The one thing about Dr. Morris that some may find disconcerting is he is not "chatty" during your office visits (what you might call his bedside manner). He is very professional and gets right to the point. So don't expect idle chit chat during your visits. If you can get him to smile or laugh, you have truly accomplished something! But beneath that seemingly gruff exterior, Dr. Morris is 110% concerned about his patients and doing absolutely right by them. As for his staff, and the office staff of Jewett Orthopaedic Center, they are all first rate, seasoned, experienced, professional and a pleasure to work with.

He Can FIX-IT: No matter what you broke he can fix it. He can also fix other Orthopods screw-ups. Not many people know this fabulous Physcian invented a hip replacement system that has revolutionized total hip procedures. It uses no glues thus making it l
