Excerpt from patient testimonial. Full testimonial can be found under patient testimonials
“My life was changed in the summer of 2009 when – after decades of pain – Dr. John Clohisy performed two total hip replacements six weeks apart…
My only regret is that I didn’t cross paths with Dr. Clohisy when I was much younger. I’ve said many times that he didn’t save my life -but he did give me back my life – a dramatically improved one, finally free of pain. I continue to be grateful every day”.
