I have been suffering with arthritis and joint pain since l966, when I had a childhood accident and dislocated my hip. After two years of doctors ""practicing medicine"" and finally taking a simple xray which showed the dislocation, I had my hip joint hastily put back in place with pins.
Long story short.....I lost two inches of growth in my right leg during the time of dislocation and had developed scoliosis and other fun joint diseases.
Fast forward thirty five years....and years of deterioration, bad limp, pain and arthritic joint disease....I learned of Dr. Greg Montalbano and decided to finally have my hip replaced. It was by far the best decision I have ever made. Dr. Greg calmed my fears, answered all my questions, and after surgery, not only was I pain free....but as an added bonus...my legs were even and I no longer had a limp. It was like winning the lottery. Dr. Montalbano is a caring, wonderful surgeon who has hands of gold. If you are reading this and are contemplating having hip replacement....I would advise you to run (wishful thinking)...not walk and have this truly life changing experience.....To be painfree...ying and yang...is only something shared by other joint disease patients who understand the agony of bone on bone torture.
Last year I needed my left hip replaced, and I again enlisted Dr. Montalbano's help. He has always been there to help whenever I called or had a question or concern, and his service and staff are the best I have ever encountered. He is like family now and has given me my life back. I am grateful to Dr. Greg for his kindness, professionalism and skills....and sing his praises wherever I go.
