Dr. Hanosh is an experienced, compassionate, and personable professional. I totally trust him to perform my knee replacements. His staff is also caring and skilled.

Dr Hanosh replaced my right hip in July 2021 when I was 60 and today I still I unreservedly recommend the great orthopedics team at Lovelace and Dr Hanosh. Prior to the operation I had interviewed five other surgeons and read seven books on the topic before meeting Dr Hanosh. When we met, he told me about the minimally invasive Superior Method that would allow me to continue to fully bend at the waist. Being able to move your hips below your knees is not always an option with other methods like the Posterior Method, for fear of dislocation. Bonus points for the Superior Method include that the recovery period is almost half the time of the Posterior Method and for a side sleeper like me I much preferred to only have to sleep on my back for four weeks instead of up to eight. Almost three years later my hip continues to perform flawlessly, and I can still move my butt below my knees with ease.

Saw Dr. Hanosh in consult for future hip replacement surgery. I very much appreciated the visit and found him to be very attentive. He answered all the questions I asked and patiently explained all I wanted to know in detail. He had a very good demeanor altogether and I feel confident in having him do my surgery.
