Dr. Siddiqi is an absolute phenom! My total hip surgery was a breeze. I was operated on at 8:45 am, was in my room at 1 pm and was up and walking at 4 pm. He offered to release me same day but I opted to stay overnight to make sure I had no pain issues. I went home at noon the next day! The staff at the Orthopedic Institute is outstanding, led by the one and only Jenn. They were always available either by phone or email to answer any questions. I had total hip on my left side 23 years ago. At some point it may need a tweak. Dr. Siddiqi is the only one I’d even consider.

In November 2020, I had to get my right knee re-done. I was in so much pain and discomfort I was unable to walk, from October. At first I was using crutches so much that it caused me to be unable to write or use my right side. On November 17, 2020, Dr. Siddiqi performed the knee replace revision; I stayed in the hospital overnight, but I was able to move around right after surgery. The next day i went home; no physical therapy, When I got home, I was able to move around as if I had no surgery at all. I am so grateful to Dr. Siddiqi and his team who took excellent care of me. I would highly recommend him. – Delores Massicot
