I had total hip replacement 9 days ago by Dr. Frisch, and I am pain free and able to walk with a cane to assure that I don’t fall. I expect to no longer need the cane once my muscle strength is sufficient, probably in about a week. The entire experience from the first office visit to now has been fantastic. Very friendly people that are good at their jobs. This includes Crittenton Hospital personnel. Dr. Frisch has a nice personality, he was thorough in explaining details regarding my condition and he answered all of my questions without making me feel hurried. The hip replacement implants selected were top of the line, the surgical skill of Dr. Frisch is excellent with great post-surgical results, and the follow up program to monitor wear of the plastic part of the implant is comforting. Physical therapy in the DeClaire LaMacchia Orthopaedic Institute office has been great as well. Each Therapist knows the surgical technique of each Doctor, and they tailor the physical therapy accordingly. They explain why certain muscles hurt after the surgery and they quickly alleviate the pain. The main goals of strengthening muscles and achieving range of motion are clear, and the therapy has met these goals so far. I will know more as my physical therapy progresses. I could not ask for anything more in this experience, and I highly recommend Dr. Frisch as an Orthopaedic Surgeon. Based on my experience so far, and in talking to other people that have had “work done” at DeClaire LaMacchia Orthopaedic Institute, I recommend this office and group of Surgeons in general to correct issues with knees, hips, spine and shoulders. These people are the best of the best. Many thanks for improving my quality of life. I hope that I don’t need to see you in the future, but if I do, I have confidence that you will dramatically improve my quality of life once again.

I had Dr. Nicholas Frisch at Crittenton Hospital do a right hip THA revision surgery to restore an old hip replacement. I went home the next day. A great nursing staff, so caring – a total team and so on hands. Dr. Frisch called me personally the next day instead of having the office call me.
I had fallen on my knee, which I had previous had replaced in 2002. After seeing medical staff for my injury I was told that I would need to go to a larger hospital due to the injury being so complex. My daughter made a phone call to the DeClaire LaMacchia Orthopaedic Institute, here in Rochester. The doctors met me down in the ER at Crittenton, and Dr. Frisch did the surgery on 08/28/2017. I cannot thank him or his staff enough for the care I received. As of today, December 8th, I am no walking on a cane and I am full weight bearing on my leg. I thank God that we were led to Dr. Frisch, and that he was able to do my surgery. I couldn’t have asked for better care, a better surgeon, or a better outcome after my surgery. I want extend a big thank you to Dr. Frisch and his staff.
