Indeed following the numbers may be a reliable way in finding a good surgeon. However, before going through the surgery, one should know all about the surgery and its risks. Many would go through the procedure because of the pain but there are also problems after the surgery that might make the pain much worse.

Considering that a hip surgery can be life-changing and there is the possibility of complications, I think patients should be made aware of the statistics. By then, they can make decisions more confidently. Aside from the hospitals, knowing the records of the surgeons may also help. Patients shoud be entitled to know these important data. It may be a good thing to visit DePuy ASR hip lawsuit information center and read up on articles regarding things you should know before deciding on a hip replacement surgery.

Hip Surgery, Are you out simply of your mind?

Do you Not see all the litigation regarding Hip replacement surgery??, At this time at least 250,000 have been negatively affected by implants.

You'll be just making some law firm very wealthy.

I have avoided surgery and for all body inflammation take Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
By the way, though it has taken me 8 years, I am closing in on healing my Hip Naturally in it's entirety.

It didn’t help matters either Doctors had me a medications stupidly which causes central "nerve" breakdown. They do not care, it not their body.

I wouldn't seek surgery or painkillers with your money, I have Medicare. Part D has to go bye bye. Food Stamps are costing us 97 ˝ Billion.

I’ll wager Part D is costing us much more.

Then Doctors will try to talking you into those faulty battery operated pain removal implants as well.

The rich simply get richer at your expense.

MD’s simply exploit patients everyday in this country for money, mucho money.
It is getting to be the American Way, sadly to say..
Hospitals could not make it without Medicare.

Doctors also did there dam nest to try and coerced me into needless Prostate Surgery which would of made me a vegetable ultimately. Along with that array of extremely expensive drugs as well . I turned down the drugs and surgery and currently living much better. Doctors were very upset and annoyed with me. The saw dollar signs which never appeared.

They did everything in there power to convince me I needed surgery and drugs. That's all MD’s today are good for. They have no moral compass whatsoever.

Well I got news for all you cormorant medical doctors, I didn’t need drugs or surgery. T.G.

There are one too many cormorant doctors who operate in Florida!!!

My "sugar" problem, hip and prostate all three medical myths by medical professionals. What do they actually learn in medical school these days? How to rip off Insurance companies must be top of the to do List in priorities.

It rather upsetting to realize that Lithium is responsible for Rheumatoid Arthritis and that Dr.’s Martiniasevic and Pansy Vasquez, medical doctors at the Pavilion prescribe Lithium for woman.
Woman are very prone to RA, much more so than men. It is responsible for my RA and Chervony simply ignored the warnings of the FDA. Sure it not his body. Chervony does not deserve a MD license. His pompous arrogant style just proved to me he knew very very little.
It is also a tragedy since hormones and transmitter can be balanced and rebalanced with the proper Diet (fasting helps considerably). This I can prove.

How about my ex wife’s obstetrician? Caught in his Speedo on Fire Island, strictly so he could perform more of a money maker, a unnecessary “C section“ on my first son. Then he has the “chutzpah” to blame my ex. A true money hungry doctor who actually thought he was the giver of life. It wasn’t once again his body, so why should he give a crap.

This is the reason more and more doctors are hooked on painkillers because there crooks and can’t look in themselves in the mirror.

Popeye ironically had his Spinach and Olive Oil.

I have my Extra Virgin Olive Oil and a very nice array of vegetables. Still looking for the right Olive oil for me.
