Catherine I.

I have been a patient of Illinois Bone & Joint for 10 years and started seeing Dr. Peter Thadani approximately 2 years ago. He is very caring doctor and the best at giving injections (never felt any pain) which was a new experience for me.

I went to Dr. Thadani for excruciating hip pain and he did e-rays and ordered an MRI. They showed advanced degeneration in my hip. We tried hip injections, but they only worked for a short period of time so we knew that a hip replacement was the next step. By this time I was walking with a cane because the pain became unbearable. Dr. Thadani explained the procedure thoroughly and was always willing to answer any questions I had. After a few more months of pain, I decided to have the surgery.

The surgery was quick and Dr. Thadani was there every day checking up on me in the hospital. It was hard at first, but every day I got better and better. I could not believe how easy the recovery was compared to my knee replacement 6 years ago. The hip caused me no pain and I was moving around in no time. I would recommend Dr. Thadani to anyone thinking about hip replacement surgery. He is an excellent surgeon and now I am able to walk without a cane and am actually starting to exercise again!
