Patient Reviews

“Four weeks ago I had an anterior hip replacement performed by surgeon, Dr. Feierabend at Heartland. I no longer need a walker or a cane. For me, an anterior hip replacement meant faster recovery without as many precautions and fewer pain meds. I have only used over-the-counter pain medicine since I was discharged from the hospital. I am now cleared to "do anything I want to do." I am looking forward to long, pain free walks which I have not been able to do for some time. Anterior hip replacement might not be the answer for everyone, but it well worth looking into.”

“The care I recieved in the hospital after my total knee was excellant all the nurses were so kind and understanding! I had the best care you can get while I was there and Dr. Nelson was also very kind and professional. If I ever have to get the other knee replaced I would go back to Heartland Orthopedic's again.”

“Dr. Brand is Great! He was professional, and very concise with his plans for my knee repair. And the staff have always shown their care for my individual situation. My surgery went wonderfully, and I have already felt back to normal, minus a little pain on the same day. Thank you all!”

“Dr. Lindsey fused several discs in my neck. He was always very professional, while still appearing to be very caring. I also saw his PA Spaeth several,times, and was extremely thankful for his knowledge and pleasant personality!. He ordered a CT scan that found a brain aneurism and most probably saved my life!”

“Dr. Nelson always took the time to listen to my concerns and was always professional and courteous. He did a great job with my knee replacement. Pre-op appointments, the day of surgery, and post-op followups went as expected and I couldn't be more pleased with my new knee!”
