I have had four operations in the last forty five years to repair severe damage to the pelvis and right hip due to an accident. Dr. Lancaster performed the last procedure in 2001. His surgery has provided excellent results in all aspects. I am pain free and still fully functional with this prosthesis at seventy four years of age. great work Doc.
The total knee replacement was successful. However, I had almost fatal complications from medication overdose. The surgery was at Uptown, but I ended up in ER at Big Baylor, because they do not a level one ER. Dr Lancaster came in daily to admire his work, but he showed no leadership (or even interest) in my overall trauma that resulted from actions taken while under his care.
Dr Lancaster turned my life around with complete hip replacement in 2009. Within six weeks I was able to go to Europe and enjoy the walking. I got into Mountain Biking and have enjoyed that all over Texas and Colorado. I was courteously treated, had great staff and forthright dealings with Dr Lancaster. I have recommended him to several friends who have all had very positive results with hip replacements.
