Unethical

This man dropped me three times during hip replacement surgery fracturing both hips, completely shattering my left. Many will automatically view this statement harshly, I get it. These are the good guys, right? This really happened, though. I have some form of spinal injury that has been kept from me for 3 1/2 years. I've been walking around for 3 1/2 years with fractures in both hips that have been replaced. The injuries he caused are so severe and rare that I can prove my case against him by simply having a doctor properly assess me. But, no doctor will touch me now so I've endured severe chronic pain on a scale that is hard to comprehend. If he makes a mistake he will never tell you. You will suffer the rest of your life with no explanation offered.

Amazing doctor

I would highly recomment Dr. Sierra to anyone having problems with their hips. I had a previous procedure done by another doctor and it didn't work for me. I was left on crutches and in worse pain than before the first surgery. Dr. Sierra operatated on my hip 10 weeks ago and I am doing so much better now. To be without that nagging pain for the first time in a long time is amazing. Dr. Sierra is very professional, kind and knowledable in all things hip related.
