Dr. Durkin, Orthopedic surgeon, minimal invasive partial knee replacement

12 days ago (Oct. 28th 2015) Dr. Durkin performed partial knee replacement for me. I am so glad because I could walk 5 hours after the operation in my room. The class to prepare me was the best ever. I practiced the excercises 9 days ahead of time, therefore, I knew by heart what to do. Already 3 days after surgery, I could walk and graduate from the walker to a cane. Honestly, it is a miracle and I only wish that I had this done earlier. This is the 3rd time that I had an operation on this knee. I could not walk up or down any more and was miserable. The colorful booklet, developed by Dr. Durkin's Orthopedic Nurse Navigator, Pam Pam Falotico, MS, RN, CAPA helped me to learn every possible detail about excercises, rehabilitation places, and how to be ready for the procedure. Before surgery, I practiced the excercises for hours, and therefore knew what to practice after surgery. I am recovering well. Today, I had my 3rd physical therapy session. I can recommend Dr. Durkin and his team to the highest. I give them all the stars in the world. Thank you Dr. Durkin and thank you for your team at Hinsdale Orthoepedics and the staff at Hinsdale Hospital.

I felt that I was not informed of other options besides surgery and if the surgery would benifit me.I went for a second visit because I was feeling better and wanted more information about the success rate.He told me"no one had a gun to my head to make me have the surgery".I have been in the medical field for 40 plus years and have never heard a physician use that phrase. And I was his first patient of the day. The wait of 35min was my first visit

Great Doc....but

The doctors here are great! They are the ONLY reason I put up with the drama.The front end of this practice is the WORST I have ever had to deal with in my life. This includes college heath services, the free VD clinic and the City of Chicago clinic system.Phone calls don't get returned. Only once have I been seen in a timely many - do not be surprised to have cumulative wait times of well over an hour. I have been "rescheduled" only twice. The kicker was the person who schedules surgery completely dropped the ball. I went to the hospital for pre-op blood work and some test and they had no idea who I was. NOTHING had been called in - test, surgery - nothing. Went directly to the office find out what was going on. Was told everything would be taken care of and one of two people would get back to me when everything was taken care of. Of course no one called me back. When the hospital called wanting to know if I wished to pay for my surgery in advance I figured I was in the system.Obamacare can't be worse than this...
