Patient Reviews

Patient Testimonial 2016-09-2210 days ago had a right total hip replacement, I had debated for a year to have this surgery. After meeting with Dr. Baxter in June I made the decision that same day. Now I feel like I have a new lease on life, just 10 days later. His staff and the incredible care at southern hills were amazing. I was also pleased that on the morning of my surgery dr. Baxter prayed with my husband and I. A gifted surgeon.

Patient Testimonial 2016-09-156 weeks out from left knee replacement, I have seen significant improvement from pre-op. the care I received at the office and hospital was superb. Questions were addressed and I was able to be an active participant in the decisions around my care which was important. I have to have my other knee replaced as well, but will do so without hesitation with Dr. Baxter as my surgeon.

Patient Testimonial 2016-08-298 weeks out from right hip scope, my hip feels great. A lot of pain week one, started PT and started feeling much better after 3 weeks. The discomfort and pain I had before surgery is gone. I would highly recommend this procedure if you are considering it. I should have done this much sooner.

Patient Testimonial 2016-08-094months out from right hip scope with labral repair, I am so thankful I decided to go through with the surgery on my hip. Prior to surgery I was unable to do a lot of the activities I like to do. I am so thankful for Dr. Baxter. He is very thorough, caring and has amazing bedside manner.Four months post surgery I am pain free from the labral tear and am able to do some light jogging. I’m so glad I did not wait to have this procedure done!

Patient Testimonial 2015-12-096 weeks out from left hip scope with labral repair. I’m glad I got my hip scoped. The recovery is a interesting process but I don’t feel the pain I had pre-surgery. I am back to work, walking and going up and down stairs. I would recommend this surgery to anyone with hip pain. Dr. Baxter was great. He showed real concern for me as a patient. He prayed for me before my procedure which ment the world to me. Overall, I would highly recommend this surgery.
