Patient Testimonials

Coral Conner
Dr. Connors replaced my right hip in September 2016. I was living with daily pain that was severely affecting my quality of life. I chose Dr. Connors based on the testimonials and information from this website. I live 300 miles from Dr. Connors and chose to rent a house for my recovery so that I could ensure that I received the best surgery possible. Dr. Connors was worth the trip. He was my hero throughout the entire experience. My operation went perfectly and 6 months later I now have mobility and am pain free. Thank you Dr. Connors for your care and expertise. I can live my life again.
