Patient Testimonials

  • "It's been almost 2 years since the first surgery, and almost a year since the second. I have had no problems or complications with the implants. Since I can take the grandkids to do the things we like to do without any pain, I couldn't be more pleased with my experiences. If you are you are trying to determine whether to have an anterior hip replacement, or select a surgeon to perform the procedure, and are considering Dr. Justin LaReau, I would highly recommend him and his staff."
  • "I thank Dr. LaReau for giving me a few more years of pain free living. My surgery took four and a half hours and he was still smiling when he told my wife and daughter that everything went well. After two months of physical therapy--I was able to walk a mile. - Arthur W."
  • "Dr. LaReau is committed to giving his patients the same chance at the best quality of life they can have. He wanted Caitlyn to be able to do everything a normal 16-year-old should be able to do. Go to a dance, drive a car, and walk without pain. Because of his skill and experience he was about to give that gift to our daughter. The best words we ever heard were when Dr. LaReau said to us that he could do this surgery for Caitlyn."
