"Well where do I start... OK, with hips - bad ones, bone-on-bone contact as it turned out. I guess that's what happens when there's too much hockey, skiing, running, biking, and football in your youth. It all adds up - I just call it "mileage". Not knowing whom to contact about the "discomfort" I experienced, I limped my way to The Orthopaedic Group, P.C., where I was referred by the desk attendant to Dr. Albert Haas for my care. Good choice as it turned out. His first recommendations included a choice of therapy or an X-ray guided injection to my hip joint. Well the therapy went very well and really helped quite a bit... and for quite a while, very successful. About a year later the "discomfort" came back (I have a very high pain threshold). Next step was total hip replacement surgery. It was my first major surgery and it was a very interesting experience. Much to my surprise and just as Dr. Albert stated, there was NO MORE JOINT PAIN the next day even with full weight placed on the offending hip. Well some six months later Dr. Albert replaced my other offending hip with the same outstanding result. So were my experiences favorable - yes, absolutely. Dr. Albert Haas spent all the time with me that I needed during every office visit and post operation at the hospital. He continues now to provide the advice and care we need for both myself and my wife. There's no need to go anywhere else, all our orthopaedic needs are met with The Orthopaedic Group, P.C. Thanks gals and guys, you're at the top of OUR lists!" -- Al P.
"I had been having trouble getting around, especially walking up and down airplane ramps and inclines, shopping with my wife, and doing odd jobs around the house. I got the third and final rooster cone injection exactly twp weeks before my daughter’s wedding so I could walk her down the aisle without stumbling. I saw the advertisements on T.V. for scooters and told my daughter I was thinking about getting myself one. She is a physician and researched knee replacements and doctors who do them. She introduced me to Dr. Albert Haas. He thought I was a great candidate for knee replacement. I have a defibrillator/pacemaker and medical issues, so we did them separately four months apart. I had the first one done in October of 2011 and the second one in February 2012. I went to Mexico on a business trip six weeks after the second one and was amazed how easily I maneuvered the ramps on the plane. Now six months after the second one, I am more active than I have been in years and have no pain with walking. I can go shopping with my wife all day and enjoy my retirement doing whatever it is I decide to do that day." -- Thomas A.
"Several years ago, I went to Dr. West per a recommendation from a friend. At the time, I was in severe lower back pain. I had previously had laser surgery by another Orthopaedic doctor in a different group. After Dr. West viewed my MRI, it was decided that I should have an epidural. I have had several epidurals which have lasted anywhere from six months to a year, allowing me to me pain free in the lower back. I later went to see Dr. West with severe pain in my neck and numbness in my left arm. After an MRI, Dr. West informed me that I had Spinal Stenosis and needed to have surgery. Even though this was a frightening experience for me, Dr. West explained to me that everything that could be done, would be done, to help my pain. Before surgery, I was very pleased with the introduction to the surgery through the class that was offered by The Orthopaedic Group, P.C., at Providence Hospital. It was very educational and helped me to go into surgery with assurance that I would be okay. After surgery, I was totally amazed at how quick my recovery took place. It has now been a year and I am still pain free. I have recommended Dr. West to many others who have asked about my surgery. I truly feel that he is a blessing from God and I pray that many others will have the success that I have had since surgery. May God continue to bless Dr. West and The Orthopaedic Group, P.C., for the dedicated work that is done through their hands." -- Reanne L.
"Dr. Haas has been my favorite orthopaedic doctor for 10 years. When I went to him for a severe backache, he recommended a MRI to determine the extent of my injury. The results showed I needed back surgery that was very serious. Dr Haas recommended Dr Volkman who he considered the best doctor to perform this type of surgery. The surgery lasted six hours and numerous screws and pins were placed in my spine. The results were fantastic. I am now without any pain and I am back to playing golf three times a week and walking long distances! To this day I call it a miracle operation. Dr. Volkman and Dr. Haas are two of the finest doctors at The Orthopaedic Group, P.C." -- Anthony P.
"I have been using Dr. Haas for a number of years. His staff is always pleasant, caring, and they try to make you as comfortable as possible. Dr Haas takes his time with you and makes you feel like you are the only patient. He wants to get to the cause of the problem not mask the pain. I trust him with my life." -- Barbara D.
"As a very active 51-year-old mother, grandmother, and registered nurse I was upset when after a doctor visit and X-rays that I learned the cartilage in both my knees were gone. I made an appointment with an orthopaedic surgeon who wanted to schedule a knee replacement right away. I thankfully sought out a second opinion. After high recommendations from co-workers who were orthopaedic nurses, OR nurses, and physical therapists, I made an appointment with Dr. Haas. He patiently listened to my concerns and while he agreed I did need knee replacements, he informed me of a procedure that involved injections of Synvisc 1 into both knees. After a detailed explanation of the procedure, I had the injections the same day of my visit. The injections were successful and I did not require another injection for eight months. While knee replacement will be at some point in time necessary, I am so thankful that Dr. Haas offered to try the injections. I have been able to continue working 12-hour shifts, play with my grandchildren, and enjoy the outdoor activities I so love. I am very thankful to have a doctor that listens to my concerns and offered me options. Thank you Dr. Haas!!!" -- Susan B.
