Here is what some of Dr. Hill’s patients have to say about their experiences working with him to relieve their hip, knee and joint pain:
I was referred to Dr. Hill to repair my hip. This was my 3rd hip replacement for the same hip. The first two did not go well. I went to his office and the staff was friendly and courteous. Dr. Hill explained everything that he was going to do so I could understand it. The surgery went great. This is how it was suppose to be the other two times. If you need an Orthopedic surgeon Dr. Hill is one you should seek. -RR
Dr. Hill and all his staff are very pleasant. My experience at Oakland Region Hospital was pleasant as well. They had me up and moving the first day. I’m thankful that Dr. Hill is up to date with new technologies as it made my recovery much easier. -L.S.
Doctor Hill is very interested in listening to his patients and providing excellent care with what is bothering you. I would recommend Doctor Hill to anyone with knee or hip problems. -K.D.
My 83 year old Mom has been having pain in her hip and knee for several months. Another ortho said they wouldn’t do a joint replacement on someone that old. She saw her PCP, the other ortho, and pain management doctor, with no resolution of her pain. However, the pain mgmt doctor recommended Dr Hill. We saw him a few weeks ago. Her primary pain was in her knee, and all the doctors were saying that the knee xrays didn’t look that bad. Dr Hill also took an xray of her hip and the multiple fractures in her hip are causing “referred” pain in her knee. I have been struggling with getting several different doctors to give medical clearance AND do what’s needed to get the surgery. Dr Hill’s staff has been amazing, reaching out to all the other doctors to get all the records & results needed to get her cleared for surgery. I have been at the end of my rope with being bounced around by all the doctors, unable to push them to speak to each other or share information. The staff has taken care of it, and all I have to do is take care of my Mom until her surgery, and afterward. I had a meltdown yesterday, an adult woman crying due to frustration and inability to help my Mom. Dr Hill’s staff understood and have helped weave our way through all the doctors, getting a plan in place. NOT ONE of the other doctor’s offices my Mom has been dealing with stepped up to the plate and helped, in spite of the fact she’s been seeing them much longer. -Anonymous
It was a great privilege working with Dr. Hill on my ankle fracture. He has done a wonderful job during and after my surgery. He and his staff were very professional and always made me feel comfortable while visiting his office for my routine appointments and answered any questions I had. I am very satisfied with my results. Dr. Hill really cares for his patients and is there when you need his help. I am very appreciative! -G.M.
Wow! Dr. Hill is an AMAZING doctor! I am so satisfied with my total knee replacement. I was up and walking within hours of my recovery time in the hospital. It was wonderful. My whole experience was completely amazing and pain-free. I was at 95% the first day after surgery. I was able to walk and do the physical therapy exercises the first day in the hospital. He has an excellent pain-free regimen that helps you to follow his instructions so you can get back to being 100% mobile and pain-free. He is very concerned about his patients’ welfare and recovery back to their daily life activities. Dr. Hill is the man if you’re looking for a doctor who is concerned about correcting your situation and eliminating your pain, If you follow all the instructions Dr. Hill give you and follow the pain regimen he has outlined for you, you too will have an excellent experience with the surgery he performs. The key is for you to “FOLLOW HIS INSTRUCTIONS.” I am so confident in him and his skills as a surgeon that I am having my other knee done. And this is within 4 weeks of having the first knee done. My total satisfaction would not have been possible without the help and assistance of Dr. Hill’s office staff. He has a great team working along side him who enables him to provide the quality of care that he does. They are truly a great group of concerned medical professionals. I would recommend his practice to anyone who is searching for medical care of sports injuries or joint-care. Great doctor! Great team! -T.W.
I had been to several different physicians over the past two years. I had two sets of MRIs and X-rays. The docs sent me to Physical Therapy and gave me injections but the pain in my hip and lower back would not go away. I could not sleep. The pain kept me up most nights. Later the pain was constant. I was then sent to the pain clinic where they put me under and gave me injections in my back and hip. I had them twice. The first time worked for a few weeks but only in one area, and the last one did not work at all. The office called to see how I was doing and I told them it did not work. No one ever got back to me. I spoke with Dr. Hill and he said we did not need an MRI but he did an Xray. He took his time and found both areas that were causing me pain and injected the spots. I felt relief right away and am now pain free.I have been living with this pain for two years and Dr. Hill found it right away. I would highly recommend Dr. Hill. He took the time to find out exactly where my pain was. He was patient and was able to catch the areas dead on. I had given up golf and bowling and I am looking forward to both now. All my thanks Dr. Hill. -Anonymous
I had four knee surgeries before I came to Dr. Hill. He listened to my problems and respected the fact that I really did not want to have yet another surgery. He tried everything possible to prevent me from having to go in for surgery. Once it was decided that that is what needed to be done, The surgery was amazing. I felt better immediately! I have had knee pain for over twenty years, and I am now virtually pain free. Dr. Hill is an amazing doctor – very knowledgeable, and yet he actually cares and listens to his patients. Something you don’t see very often. I would highly recommend Dr. Hill to anybody having knee problems. -K
This amazing surgeon, replaced my badly worn out painful right hip in a short painless couple of hours. I had zero pain after surgery and up walking a few hours later. I was out of the hospital the next day pain free and walking with a walker. Now two weeks later I’m walking without a cane or walker, almost back to my regular routine. Thank you Dr. Hill. -T.T.
Dr. Hill is an exceptional surgeon. He is very informative. He fixed my hip someone else messed up and gave me my 2 in. back in my leg that I lost in in the other surgeries. If you need an Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Hill is the one to choose. -Anonymous
Both hips replaced….Super pleased with the second anterior replacement procedure. Recovery time was easier than expected.” -Anonymous
“Dr Hill was an excellent choice. I had 3 opinions and chose Dr Hill for his down to earth attitude and his knowledge based on test results. The reason I say this is another Dr recommended physical therapy, which was not the solution in the end. Dr Hill knew where I hurt from the MRI and knew surgery was the best option. From the time I met him to post surgery he spent time explaining everything. Post sorcery, while I was in recovery, he spent a half hour with my wife and father explaining 9 pages of pictures taken during the surgery. A week later I saw him on crutches and he again took time with me to explain what to expect in the short and long term. In this age of the revolving surgery door for most Dr.’s. I am impressed with the personal approach Dr Hill took.” -C.B.
“Never once suggested surgery just made me better. Helpful and honest.” -Anonymous
“This is the second time I have used Dr. Hill and both times was a good experience.” -Anonymous
“One of the best doctors we visited for this recurring problem. Also, the first surgeon not to suggest surgery but rather noninvasive alternative therapies that have worked extremely well.” -Anonymous
“GREAT EXPERIENCE…. My experience with this team has been awesome from day one! The staff treated me as an honored guest – By the time I met with Dr. Hill, I already felt so welcome and at ease. His mannerism is very kind and he is very thorough; he let me know what to expect, what the pros and cons were. My total hip replacement surgery went very well without any problems; I didn’t even have to change a bandage. Everything went just as he said it would and I am feeling great!! This staff has such excellent customer service and they were the same every single visit – they seem to have the same heart as Dr. Hill – way over the top!!”
“He did orthoscopic surgery for my separated shoulder. I’m happy to say I’m 100% recovered from it, barely any scarring, and no loss in range of motion.”
