Dr. Louis is an outstanding surgeon and he is the most personable health professional I've ever worked with. In addition to being technically proficient with the most advanced hip implant technology, he is patient, caring, and a good listener. He answered my many questions on the techniques and materials specified for my total hip arthroplasty in a way that made me comfortable going forward with the operation. he is excellent in post-operative follow-up and assisted with additional health concerns throughout the year following the operation. I enthusiastically recommend him to anyone needing similar care.
