Dr. Lhowe was my surgeon when I was helicoptered to Mass General after a head on car collision. He did a great job using a plate with screws keeping my femur together. While I live in New York, I still want to return to Dr. Lhowe in Boston for a procedure on my knee that was also damaged.

On all counts I found Dr. Lhowe to be excellent. He accurately diagnosed my problem (hip dysplasia, confirmed by a second opinion), very kindly and thoroughly explained my condition and choices to deal with it. He performed a hip replacement, which has brought complete relief. I was back to daily activities within a month, five months out I am back to skiing like a champ. Thanks Dr. Lhowe!
