          Dr. Matthys did an awesome total hip surgery on me. I couldn’t walk a block even with my cane. After surgery, was home in 2 and 1/2 days, off my walker in a week. Still use my cane, afraid of falling, at 4 weeks. Small incision, healed nicely.I still have back problems (2 surgeries) but Dr. Matthys is a miracle worker.Thank you!!!
