I had a right hip replacement on Tuesday, February 1, 2010. The surgery was extremely successful, and I was free of the pain associated with the hip immediately. I was on my feet walking the next day. I was out of the hospital within a few days. I returned to work in three weeks. I would definitely recommend Dr. Salvati. The nurses, doctors, physical therapists and other staff could not have been more helpful. The hospital was immaculate and the atmosphere was wonderful for a hospital.
