New Knees are Great - Thank YOU

For years I was having knee pain and my activities were getting more and more limited. A visit to Dr. Hurvitz changed all that. After some x-rays and a consult I decided a bilateral knee replacement was the best thing for me. The staff quickly got it organized and on the surgery schedule. I worked with a personal trainer to prepare for this procedure as much as possible. In October of 2021 Dr. Hurvitz replaced both knees, spent about 5 days at Cottage Rehab Hospital, and then a month of twice a week rehab visits and everything was working again.

Now over a year after the procedure I barely notice my knees. Traveling is much easier and enjoyable, everyday walks and activities are easy, I am able to do things in the Gym that were not possible before,and playing pickle ball is easy and pain-free.

Thank you Dr. Hurvitz, Much Appreciated.

Dr. Hurvitz Rocks!

Months ago, I came to Dr. Hurvitz with a shoulder and hip injury from playing softball. He is an amazing doctor, who really listened to my aches and pains. One thing that is amazing about his office is that they have an x-ray machine on site, with a really nice x-ray tech. Dr. Hurvitz was able to immediately take a more in depth look at what was really going on. Thank goodness my injuries weren’t too severe, and he ordered physical therapy. I am currently healed, and back playing softball. Thank you Dr. Hurvitz and your entire staff, for making my recovery possible.
