My experience and results following my anterior approach to total hip replacement (THR) with Dr. Eric Grossman were nothing short of spectacular. Being a physical therapist and having worked in the field for 34 years, specializing in Orthopaedics, I have treated thousands of patients with THR reconstructions performed by a variety of physicians.
One of the greatest misnomers my patients have living in Westchester and Putnam counties is that they must travel to NYC to obtain the best quality THR. This belief could not be further from the truth.
The reason I chose Dr. Grossman was based on the results I saw in his patients treated by me post operatively. Pain levels were minimal to none. Range of motion, excellent. And return to function, superior. Outcomes exceeded the patients I saw from that famous NYC hospital we see being hawked as the platinum standard of orthopaedic surgery.
My result was exactly what I had hoped for. I was ambulatory 8 hours post-op, returned home the next day, and was able to walk and sleep comfortably for the first time in over a year and a half. I returned to work full time in 10 days without a gait aide. My patients were amazed to see me back at work so soon and move about so comfortably.
In closing it would be incomplete if bedside manner was not mentioned. One often hears a physician is a great surgeon but has no bedside manner. That has always disturbed me because if bedside manner is lacking, the physician’s toolbag is half full, unless of course he is a pathologist or medical examiner. Dr. Grossman is conversational, empathetic, and makes on feel as if he has a personal relationship with you.
I welcome any inquiries from prospective THR patients regarding my care.
