Hip Testimonial

Dr. Durbhakula, On my left hip revision, your the best. You informed me of things that my previous doctor didn’t see, on the key issues I was having with my pain with my left hip. You explained everything very clearly so I could understand. Only being 7 years on the first surgery I knew something was not right. Thanks again see you in 2 weeks!!

Knee Testimonial
