Dr Louis is an innovator in orthopedics and is one of the only surgeons in the area doing anterior hip replacement. The anterior hip replacement provides a faster recovery and better quality of life after surgery. Unfortunately, most orthopedic surgeons are not trained in it and most hospitals do not have the type of bed necessary to perform the anterior hip surgery. At this writing, the closest hospital to me offering anterior hip replacement was Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove. Dr. Louis is an excellent surgeon and is very personable. His staff is very capable and efficient. I don’ t wish hip replacement on anybody but if you need to have it, Dr. Louis and his staff, coupled with the good people at Good Samaritan Hospital, are a winning team.
