A review by a patient that verified they have visited Dr. Kostas Economopoulos - Posted on January 16th, 2018
I have been having issues with my hip and spine for many, many years. As a mom of 4 and grandmother of 1, I've taken care of everyone but me. I've worked hard all my life even with the faulty hip and scoliosis. In 2015, I went to see several doctors to see if we could get the surgeries I need done. I went to OrthoAZ, Sonoran Spine, etc...and it was like no one wanted to treat me. This I couldn't understand as we have BC/BS and they are in network. OrthoAZ in 2015 just said they couldn't help me. They took x-rays, but said they do older people. They didn't want to touch my spine and said there was nothing wrong w/the hip. I went to Sonoran Spine and they said they'd do surgery on the neck, but that there wasn't anything wrong w/the hip, my low back didn't need surgery even though the MRI showed 3 herniated discs, and that the limp and drooping shoulder I was faking. FAKING. So, I left in tears, and I've went another 3 yrs in severe, debilitating pain, put on more weight even w/diet as I can't exercise like I used to, and do not sleep more than 2-4 hours any given night, and sometimes none at all. I do not take pain meds unless I'm completely unable to walk/stand upright, which happens occasionally. My husband and I decided to cancel our vacation this year, 2018, and focus on my back since I've had a few rough episodes (1 landed me in the ER which I loathe). I went back or OrthoAZ to see their head hip specialist who was rated one of the best. He did the MRI (finally), and low and behold I have a huge cyst and a very large labral tear. He also did x-rays. Now, this guy decides not to go over anything w/me, and I never even saw an x-ray. He says if I want surgery, which he said I need, I must have an injection and 6 weeks of therapy. This I don't understand w/a labral tear as PT would make it worse, and he said I need surgery. He also said I needed to do this all "in house". KEY WORDS. I didn't feel comfortable with this, so I told my husband that I wanted a 2nd opinion. I made an appointment w/Dr. Kostas E. (his last name is a mouthful), and said if he will do it, we'll get it done, but if not, I'm done w/Dr's. I was not very hopeful. I met Dr. Kostas and he SMILED at me, and he LISTENED to me. He understood that I've had this issue for many YEARS, and that I've been doing PT, exercises, and chiropractic care since 1993, and have tried anti inflammatory meds w/no luck. 6 weeks of PT would not be useful, nor an injection. So, he said lets take some x-rays here to get a better look, and THOSE showed I have a square femoral head instead of a round one (square peg in a round hole). So, he goes, I've probably had this since I was born, and the bone created the tear which created the cyst. OMG-AN ANSWER!!! An actual answer w/a solution that makes sense=immediate surgery. YES! I was so happy I wanted to cry. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART-THANK YOU!
Highly recommended doctor

Dr. Economopoulos was the first to determine the right diagnosis of a torn meniscus after we consulted many doctors in a one-year period. Appointment for surgery was quickly made and the surgery went smoothly. Dr. Economopoulos is a very kind doctor, taking all time to explain the procedure to me and my husband. He personally checked with my physiotherapist the right follow-up.
