performed my surgery and specifically explained what would happen and how the procedure would be done. I can't imagine a more competent surgeon than Dr. Ockuly. He is truly impressive and I was walking the same day as my surgery. The new prothesis feels the same as my natural hip. I truly recommend Dr. Ockuly if you need a hip replacement. He's the doctor for you! The best part is that there is very minimal pain and discomfort!
