“Had hip surgery in November, then knee surgery March. Dr. Ben Schwartz did both. Great surgeon, great job! This hip was a straightforward recovery., the knee was more complicated but’s little more prolonged recovery. He knows what he’s doing, so no worries if you’re thinking of getting either one done.

“Dr. Schwartz is an outstanding surgeon in his field of hip and knee replacement. I suffered from pain down my leg for a year and a half, and thinking I had a bulging disc pressing on a nerve I made an appointment with Dr. Ozuna, at Sports Medicine North. That day Dr. Ozuna knew it was my hip and referred me to Dr. Schwartz. After reading his impressive biography, I had to make an appointment for a consultation. Dr. Schwartz performed a total hip replacement on my right hip in April, I am a new woman, and forever grateful for the excellent care I have received from Dr. Schwartz.”

Thank you, Dr. Schwartz!”

“I saw Dr. Schwartz in April for knee pain. After draining my left knee and getting a cortisone shot in both knees, my pain was reduced, and now, four months later, I'm still relatively pain-free. Dr. Schwartz in the first surgeon I've ever seen that recommended against surgery at this time. It was a refreshing perspective. Both he and his PA gave professional, courteous and efficient assistance. I am very grateful!”
– James S.

There were never any surprises, every step of the way was laid out according to plan. High fives to Sports Medicine North, they were great. Follow the rehab plan, and you will have a successful experience.”

“Over five years ago I had a TKR on my right knee due to avascular necrosis and at the same time had a meniscus repair on my left knee which left the bones close but not touching. Until the summer of 2017, I had not a twinge in that left knee (or the right) and was competitively tap dancing, taking 2-3 classes per week and performing. Then I got a mosquito bite in the back of my left knee and developed a bout of cellulitis with incredible swelling. Long story short, those adjacent bones got compressed together by the swelling, and I left with bone on bone in one corner. I could barely walk, let alone dance, and could not get an appointment until November. However, with the help of the office staff, I scored a cancellation with Dr. Schwartz shortly after that, who was a complete unknown to me. I took an immediate liking to him though. He was candid, sat down and answered my questions thoroughly, and clearly outlined my options. He gave me a cortisone shot which helped my short term, but I knew the long-term solution, unfortunately, was going to be a TKR. I asked to be put on his surgical schedule asap and had the procedure done in January. After 24 hours in the hospital, Dr. Schwartz offered me the option to go home, and I jumped at it. His PA's were always accessible to me through the patient portal, and I found Dr. Schwartz and his staff to be supportive and encouraging to a patient like me who tends to push the limits when it comes to activity and PT. Within six weeks, I was back in tap class, not dancing full out, but able to participate and learn choreography. By mid-May, I was recovered and performed in two different shows, ready to do everything without reservation. I know recovery is a very individual thing and every surgery is different. But I can only say that my operation executed, my interaction with and trust in Dr. Schwartz were reliable, and my outcome couldn't be better. I can thoroughly recommend Dr. Schwartz and his team and can honestly say I have my life back thanks to him.”

“I had hip replacement in August. I have no pain for the 1st time in more than four years. I cannot say enough about Dr. Schwartz. I have recommended him and your practice to everyone who has asked.”
– Robin W.
“Staff was professional and skilled.”
– Charles C.
“Dr. Schwarz is a phenomenal surgeon. He is courteous, professional, patient and consciences. I consider myself fortunate to have had Dr. Schwartz replace my knee with a press fit Mako surgical knee. It has positively changed my life. No more pain and I’m back to sports I enjoy.”
– Dave M.
“I needed a solution for a frayed meniscus and some arthritis, other than surgery. I tried some alternative solutions including physical therapy, which did the trick. Dr Schwartz and his associates were very patient, informative, and clear on all my options. I was never pushed towards surgery, in fact, I was encouraged to try a few options to find what worked.”
– Giulia B.
“Although still recuperating from total knee replacement, so still experiencing involvement, I liked his honesty and thorough explanations. After playing voicemail tag he fit me into an extra pre-op appointment and didn’t just leave the issue hanging or pass it on to someone else to connect with me about. Got good unsolicited feedback from post-operative staff prior to surgery, which as a practicing therapist was reassuring when you’re surrendering a body part into the hands of a surgeon.”
– Elizabeth C.
