His bed side manners could be better but as a surgeon he did a great a job on my right hip. I read some of the other reviews on him and he does not speak too much but he is very straight with you on what is wrong and how it can be fixed. I do wish he would better listen to his patient even though some of our questions to him maybe stupid or obvious and I agree he need to better explain the process better and what the post-op process will be like. It has been 4 weeks or so since my surgery and I have no pain, I been walking with crutches for 1-2 miles with no pain. My physical therapy is quite well and at the six week mark I plan to go back to work. I may for the 1st week use one crutch but will see how my left leg feels when I get near the six week. The biggest issue after post-op is what can/can't do during the 3 weeks and after 6 weeks. If you go online and see some doctors say after six week no restrictions but start with low impact activities. What I am learning is that everybody is different so listen to your body and if you feel pain stop. Hope this will help others who are having pain on their hip.
I saw Dr Lopez with a complaint of extreme pain after arthroscopic surgery (my doc was at a conference). He barely acknowledged my presence, didn't listen to me and proceeded to tell me how intelligent he was. My God...I'm surprised he could get out of the doorway with that big head. He did NOTHING for me except raise my blood pressure.
I've been going to Dr. Lopez forever! I only have great things to say about Dr. Lopez and his staff! He is always friendly and very helpful! I've had two surgeries done by him, one a total knee replacement. He explains everything very thoroughly and makes sure I understand. He is a very pleasant man and treats his patients with care. He really is a miracle worker!!
