“So far, Dr. Schwartz has very capably guided me through a broken knee and a total hip replacement. Today’s visit was related to osteoarthritis issues. As an orthopedic surgeon, he is A+. As a doctor, I consider Benjamin Schwartz to be very special. He listens attentively, doesn’t rush through a visit, gives clear and helpful information, and has a great sense of humor.”

This is the first time for almost 3 years I can say I am pain-free. I would highly recommend Dr. Schwartz and his staff. He was great, took the time to talk with me before and after, and his staff was the same.”

I told my friend about the experience and care I received from start to finish and she should go there to have her hip re-done and see Dr. Benjamin Schwartz.

Great job to everyone.”

I felt there was very good communication between the staff and me leading up to the surgeries. I felt prepared and well-informed. I highly recommend Dr. Schwartz and his support staff.”

“I liked the daily emails related to what you could expect for progress, feelings, exercises to be doing, and suggestions on ways to handle the pain you might experience. I am a very active exerciser and would like to have moved along a bit faster. I did start doing some yoga and found some limitations to the range of motion in my hip, which I did not expect. I am now three months post right THR and am getting some of that range back. The exercises and walking as much as possible helps you gain your strength back much more quickly. I had had a left total knee replacement three months earlier, so the exercises and walking benefited both joints and legs, including my sense of well being, too.”
– L F.
“I had (old) total hip revision to replace the socket liner on February 24th. Able to bear weight and walk as soon as spinal wore off 100% and left Bev. Hospital the next morning. I took no pain relievers after that day, just extra-strength Tylenol for stiffness after exercise. Used one crutch only for symmetry when walking afterward for two days. After that walked 2+ miles per day without support, Sutures were removed at follow-up visit 3/11 and returned to work (40+ hrs./week) at Costco on March 18th. I have since been walking briskly an average of more than 9 miles per day with no pain whatsoever! Fourth procedure at SMN, two of which were totals. Great experience all around with all of them!”
