Patient Testimonials & Stories
Thank you to Dr. Tim Bert and Hedley Orthopedic for making the process of Hip Arthroscopy a (relatively) painless one! I am extremely happy with the level of care I have received from Dr. Bert, his MA Jennifer, and the additional office staff. He is extremely knowledgeable on hip labrum tears and FAI impingement, and incredibly skilled in this rather new corrective procedure. This surgery is technically difficult, and you NEED to have the best trained and skilled surgeon! I suffered for two years with hip pain and instability after the birth of my daughter, and after several rounds of PT, I decided to see if there was a structural reason for my pain. I was referred to Dr. Bert from my Physical Medicine physician, and I’m so happy he was my surgeon. He is up on the latest research with this technique, and his guidance has helped me to recover quickly from this surgery! His MA Jennifer answered all of my questions before and after surgery in an extremely efficient manner, which helped ease my mind as I was approaching surgery and in the days after. I am also very happy with the level of care I was given at St. Luke’s Medical Center’s surgical Orthopedic unit, they are great! If you have a hip labrum tear and/or FAI impingement, Dr. Bert at Hedley Orthopedic should be your first consult. I highly recommend him without reservation!
