I Don't Meet the Criteria to See Dr. Lux

First of all, they ask a series of questions to approve even making an appointment. Then, two days later, the office calls back to tell me that I do not meet the criteria to see Dr. Lux. I am a former patient that had a torn meniscus repaired by him. The other knee is now bothering me and could be arthritis (simple cortizone shot), could be a torn meniscus, or a torn ACL. It's never been xrayed. I had nothing but good things to say until these last couple of days, when the screeners made it clear I wasn't worth Wash U or Dr. Lux's time. That's unacceptable.

Dr Paul Lux is an amazing surgeon. He's replaced my hip and knee. I had special circumstances, (I was taking strong pain medication) that could lead to being in uncontrollable pain after surgery. He assured me that I would not have to worry about that, that he would manage my pain. He was true to his word. I'm very happy with both my hip and knee replacement. I will return next year to replace my second hip. My only regret is that I wish I'd could have had the surgeries sooner. Unfortunately I didn't have insurance before now. I trust this Dr. explicitly, if you are looking for a great orthopedic surgeon, he's the best!

Dr. Lux is a very warm and caring orthopedic surgeon. He explains procedures and outcomes. He doesn't seemed rushed during office or post surgery hospital follow up visits. I would highly recommend him for total knee surgery replacement.

Dr. Lux has stayed the course with the complications I have had with my right knee. I am one of the 1% that he has had to work on. I think he is the best Doctor I have ever had.

Lost Quality of Life

I went to Dr Lux in 2004 for a THR , I was very pleased with the outcome the only thing lacking was some of the office staffs better than you attitude . So when it was time for me to have a TKR I did not hesitate to go back to Dr. Lux . This experience was totally different . One of my main concerns besides the pain was how crooked my leg became , I expressed this to Dr. Lux and he promised me that he could straighten my leg out !! Not at anytime did he mention that I waited to long or that there might be a chance that he could not achieve this !!!! I went through all the physical therapy as instructed , my leg is still crooked and very noticeable to the point I am even more conscience of it after going through the long hall of the surgery which is a lot more intense than a THR . I am considering a second opinion now and I am very disappointed in the outcome , I do not feel I have quality of life back . And at the time which was in 2014 his office staff has gotten worse they treat you like second class citizens and there is no compassion . Frank Dr. Lux right hand man told me at one of my visits after the surgery that they could fix my knee but not my brain ! I discussed this with Dr. Lux and he laughed . I do not know what has happened to Dr. Lux and his staff but they are not what they once were . I struggle emotionally everyday because of this and I am so sorry I went back to him I have lost all trust and respect for him and his office . To think now that I may have to go to someone else to fix his botched up surgery makes me sick . I did read one bad review before I had my TKR and mentioned it to Dr. Lux and he responded people can write anything and there can always be a bad review it means nothing !!!! No I would not recommend him !!!!!
