Great hip replacement surgeon
Dr. Mary Albert is a wonderful, caring and very competent orthopedic surgeon. She performed a successful hip replacement surgery on me this past June. She employs the latest technique in hip replacement surgery called anterior hip replacement, in which the surgery cut is made in the front rather than the side. This reduces recovery time significantly. It also eliminated the post-surgery concerns of refraining from crossing your legs or bending at a 90 degree angle; which patients having a traditional hip replacement surgery have to be careful about. She visited me every day during my hospital stay to check on my progress, including both weekend days. Also of important note, is that Dr. Albert uses the cell saver machine in her surgeries, which greatly reduces the need for blood transfusions. I am very pleased that I chose Dr. Albert for my hip replacement surgery.
