“My hip replacement two months ago has allowed me to return to my active lifestyle of walking and hiking. My entire experience from the first visit through surgery and now recovery has been extremely positive. My hospital experience at Pardee was A plus for the three nights I was there. Dr. Lilly and all the care providers have been excellent. I have nothing but praise for the entire experience. Thank you.”

“Dreaded getting the hip surgery, Dr. Lilly was very thorough and explained in detail exactly what was going to happen. He and the entire staff made the process an experience that was much better than I had expected. I now wish I had done it ten years ago. Recovery was way quicker than I ever imagined and much faster than anything I had read. I highly recommend Dr. Lilly to anyone needing his services.”

“Dr. Lilly was recommended to me by another patient when I was having trouble walking seven years ago. Dr. Lilly replaced my left hip then, and I got along really well and had excellent care from Pardee Hospital and everyone in Dr. Lilly’s office. When my right hip became so painful I couldn’t sleep or walk much; I went right back to Dr. Lilly because I trusted him. He replaced my right hip in March, and I was walking well by April. I tell everyone I meet who needs orthopedic care to go to Dr. Lilly and they will be so glad they did. My patient care manager, Karen, in Dr. Lilly’s office called to check on me exactly when she promised and even helped me recover my walker accidentally left behind at the hospital. I am so grateful for the excellent care I have received and to be able to live pain-free. Thank you for the opportunity to give some praise richly deserved for Dr. Lilly, his staff and his hospital affiliates.”

“Helpful as always, Dr. Lilly is concerned, careful in the diagnosis and conservative in suggesting treatment. He’s been tracking my recovery from total knee replacement surgery two years ago which because of an old injury has required his ongoing attention. I highly recommend Dr. Lilly, and I am grateful to be his patient.”

“Dr. Lilly was very concerned about the pain I was having and ordered an MRI on my hip and back. After receiving the results, Dr. Lilly explained all the treatment options to me in a way that was easy to understand. He said I needed total hip replacement surgery and do I want to schedule it now or wait. I decided to wait. A few weeks later I decided to have the surgery, and Dr. Lilly's nurse scheduled the surgery for a day that was convenient for my husband and me and contacted my primary care doctor asking him to examine me and complete some pre-op forms she sent him. All that went smoothly. Several nurses contacted me by phone to get history info and make sure I knew what to do on the day of surgery. On the day of operation in the pre-op area, Dr. Lilly came to see me before my surgery and check if I had any questions and asked me if I still wanted to proceed with the surgery. I said yes. Surgery went well, and Dr. Lilly spoke to my husband while I was still in recovery. Physical therapy was great! Dr. Lilly came to see me every day to check on me. All my release papers were signed and ready for me to be discharged and I was home by 10:30 am. Aftercare with Dr. Lilly is excellent! The entire surgery experience has been incredible. Thank you, Dr. Lilly, EmergOrtho staff.”
