I had chosen Dr. Hitt because his was the only name I knew in orthopedics. My condition didn\'t warrant surgery which is his specialty, but he was very kind and considerate and gave me insight as to what to expect in the future.

The doctor clearly understood my condition and the lessened quality of life I\'m living. He also did everything possible to see to it that my operation was scheduled as soon as possible. He and his scheduler were both pleasant and efficient.

My medical challenge is a possible right knee replacement. I was received promptly for a scheduled appointment; however, I was left to wait in the treatment room for 35+ minutes. Upon being treated, I was pretty much left with the impression that there was nothing that could be done to help me. It was stated several times that I was too young and that I needed to fully wear out my current knee. My issue with this assessment is that I have been burdened with my condition for over 30 years. Being told to continue to suffer for many more years does not provide me any service what so ever. I am totally fine with being offered a new path for treatment, but at least offer me a pathway to an improved quality of life. Ultimately I was presented with the offer to inject my knee with steroids. I accepted based on the recommendation, and this has been a huge mistake. My discomfort has been greater since my treatment than it was before. My knee now feels as though I have debris floating around inside of it, and when it gets positioned wrong it is extremely uncomfortable. The knee has been swollen and stiff, as well as unsteady. Before my treatment, my knee was simply painful. After the treatment, my knee has been more painful, as well as unsteady, swollen, and unpredictable. I am not a fan of this treatment or the lack of information relayed to me in the process. Again, if I do not need a replacement that is terrific, even though other doctors have disagreed. However, at least offer a pathway to a solution.

I came in to address the scar tissue and adhesion from previous surgery. he refused to even look at it, even though my PVP recommended that I see him about the problem. It was a complete waste of time. I will not be back. I still have the problem but am looking (outside S&W network) for a qualified surgeon who has the courtesy to at least look at the problem I came in for!

very conscious provider. helps patient weigh options and attitude about major surgery seems to be, you will have to get it fixed eventually, but if you still can maneuver with tolerable/more than tolerable limitations, let\'s wait to do surgery.

I had a hip replacement almost four years ago. My other hip is now causing the same issue. I waited four weeks to see Dr. Hitt because he is the best surgeon and I know this next hip replacement will turn out great just like the last one. He is a gem!

I am very thankful to have had Dr. Hitt for my knee replacement surgeon. I believe he did a superior job, was very easy to talk to, listened to my concerns and addressed me as an individual rather than "just another knee". I would highly recommend Dr. Hitt and Baylor Scott & White to my friends and family.

Dr Hitt and the Roney Joint Institute are above excellent. I received the best care from Dr Hitt than any other orthopedics surgeon I have visited across the United States. And I look forward to having him perform my surgery due to his top notch skills as a surgeon and his knowledge of current practices and his excellent bed side manner and care. please feel free to contact me for further details if necessary.
