Patient Reviews
Jan 17, 2023
I’ve had my left and right hip replaced by Dr. Ball (different time frames) & he did an amazing job on both. This last surgery was in an out patient facility and I came home the same day. In home PT followed up the next day then came 2x weekly for 4 weeks. They said his patients tend to recover very fast and I was no exception. Only used a walker for 4 days then was walking fine on my own. Dr Ball has a positive bedside manner and a great PA and team. Wouldn’t recommend anyone else!
