DR. FABI-ULOUS

Before I met Dr. Fabi, I thought both my knees were the problem and I was almost unable to walk due to the pain. Dr. Fabi knew instantly that the problem was not with my knees but with my hips. My first hip was replaced 6 weeks ago and the second, 2 weeks ago. I feel like I have had miracle surgeries but without the surgeon, there would be no miracles. Two weeks post-op from the second replacement, I am walking and feeling like my old self. I know I am not the first to say it but, I feel blessed to have met Dr. David "FABI-ULOUS".

New hips

Dr. Fabi replaced both of my hips. He did this first, because I needed it, and second because I requested both be done at the same time. He performed the surgeries and did an absolutely stellar job. He's a true gentleman. And based on the results, he's an excellent surgeon. From the minute I met him, I knew I could completely trust him. If you're considering a surgery of this type I would highly recommend dr. Fabi. I'll appreciate what he did for me mary years into the future. Thank you Dr. Fabi. Your skill and dedication is truly, truly appreciate.

Five Stars

At age 49 I was diagnosed with avascular necrosis of the right hip. Treatment options for this disorder are very limited with total joint replacement being the most common treatment option. Scary to consider at such a relatively young age. I was referred to Dr. Fabi by my regular doctor. I got two additional doctors' opinions that supported Dr. Fabi'so recommendation. I had the anterior replacement done three weeks ago. I now have minimal pain and am walking comfortably without a cane or any other assistance. I highly recommend Dr. Fabi.
