I had a complete hip replacement in October and knew it was going to be a positive experience, but I was still a bit anxious about it. If you're contemplating the same surgery, you probably have had nothing but positive feedback about the end results. But my experience with Dr. Curtin and the entire OrthoCarolina team was a pleasant experience from the moment I was greeted at the front entrance to my follow-up visits. Everyone was courteous and completely professional, but not so "stiff" in their demeanor that I was made to feel like just another procedure. My opinion is that Dr. Curtin , although he is young, is a highly talented surgeon (but what do I know?...I was completely under and don't remember a thing about the operation!). All kidding aside, I wholeheartedly recommend OrthoCarolina - specifically Dr.Curtin.
