Wonderful Physician

I had my first hip replaced in August and the second in November. I was off work a total of 3 weeks!! Dr. Schmitt is a wonderful surgeon, explained things thoroughly, patient and very funny! I cannot thank him enough for giving me my mobility back!

Dr Schmitt did a horrible job on my hip replacement. I had to have it redone 2 yrs later because he failed to place the hip correctly. When I returned to his office to find out why I was still in pain his partner told me the cup in the hip joint was in the wrong place. I asked if it had moved since my surgery he told me it was in the same place as in the x ray taken 10 days after surgery. When I spoke with Dr. Schmidt he said he knew it was in the wrong place, but I was doing well and decided not to mention it. I would never refer anyone to this doctor. Beware!

Hip labral tear

I'm a 39 year old female and recently had arthroscopic surgery for a labral tear in my left hip. I tore it wake boarding. Dr. Schmitt took such good care of me right from the first office visit to my post-op visit. He was extremely clear about the procedure and was spot on about what I could expect post surgery. My brother and my sister both had Birmingham Hip Resurfacing by Dr. Schmitt and are back to their active lives. I am extremely active and it has been a little over two weeks since surgery and I feel great. I haven't been cleared for exercise yet simply because it's too soon, but Dr. Schmitt told me I would be back wake boarding this summer. I can't say enough about Dr. Schmitt! He is absolutly awesome!!!
