“I couldn't believe how smoothly it went. I'm a new man.
It's wonderful to have all that freedom without pain anymore.” -
Dr. Caillouette's patient Carol Noya talks about having her hip replaced
at a young stage in her life.
“To Dr. Caillouette & Friends –
As I was racing around this week at a very fast pace, it dawned on me how
much my life has changed! Pain is a funny thing. It can take over your
life, and you adjust your lifestyle to accomodate pain. But you can easily
miss recognizing the absence of pain unless you pay attention and take
the time to acknowledge the lack of pain.
Now that I am 4.5 years post knee replacement and 1.5 years post hip replacement,
I am totally pain free and am back to an active lifestyle, sleeping better
and my overall outlook has vastly improved.
This is just a THANK YOU to you and all of you staff that has taken a part
and an interest in my health. Every time I think about how wonderful life
is pain free, I think of you and your skill in restoring my mobility.” –

“Dear Dr. Caillouette,
The back of your business card has the statement “Motion Is Life.”
How true and how appropriate that is. You replaced my right hip November
2010 and my left hip March 2011. Thanks to you, I have regained my motion
and my ability to enjoy life. I lived with bone on bone arthritis for
too many years. It slowly grew worse and worse to the point where I couldn’t
even step up a curb without assistance. It wasn’t so much the pain,
but my inability to move and partake in normal daily activities. My wife
had to put on my shoes and socks.
I marvel at my abilities now. I do full workouts at the gym. In June we
went back east to visit familiy and we walked all over Philadelphia and
New York. When we go to baseball games at Angel Stadium, we walk the ramps
to the upper deck. No more escalators or elevators. In July we went to
San Francisco for a weekend, and last week I was able to play in the back
yard with my grandson. I look at places where I couldn’t go prior
to the surgeries and am just amazed at how things have changed. Walks
around the neighborhood with my wife are a regular activity.
Your staff is great. Everyone is so positive. Monica put me at ease after
I initially scheduled the surgery and then spent a couple of weeks bombarding
her with questions and concerns. Cecil has been wonderful. He has always
been upbeat and positive. I remember you coming in to see me when I was
in pre-op before the second surgery and you telling me it was going to
be a piece of cake. It was, and I am really grateful. My thanks to you
and your entire staff.”

“Dear Dr. Caillouette,
Thank you so much for giving me back a “life of motion.” I
will always highly recommend you as a front-runner in orthopedic technology
in hip replacement. I am much more grateful than words can show.”– Hanna Distel
“I am back home recuperating now. As Sarah told you, my experience
with my surgery went very well. My surgery ended up being quite a bit
more extensive than the surgeon initially expected. Despite this, I could
not have asked for better care! The whole experience was so extremely
positive. My surgeon and his staff were amazing. The surgery center and
it’s staff were amazing. And our hotel accommodations were absolutely
perfect for recuperating as our room was a suite with a separate bedroom
which was perfect for me. I honestly don’t think there was anything
that could have been done better! ” – Dr. Caillouette Patient
(received a hip replacement on an outpatient basis with no hospital stay).
“Dr. Caillouette – Unbelievable! Thank you from the bottom
of my knee. I had forgotten how much I missed taking walks with my wife,
talking with friends at parties and not immediately looking for a chair
to sit down. My life is back.” – Patient
“Dr. Caillouette, I just wanted to personally and formally thank
you for doing such a great job on my hip replacement. I can feel it getting
stronger as the weeks pass.” – Patient
“Dr. Caillouette is professional, compassionate, listens, and explains
his surgical procedures. How wonderful to have an orthopedic surgeon that
treats his patients so well! He is quite the exception to most doctors.
Can’t say enough good things about him and Monica, his surgery scheduler.”
“Dr. Caillouette and Cecil Reyes, PA-C are excellent. They really
listened to what I had to say. The entire staff was wonderful. The time
preparing for surgery, they never got tired of me calling with questions.
Overall, Dr. Caillouette and his staff were outstanding and very caring
to my needs.” –
“Words cannot express my gratitude for all that Dr. Caillouette has
done. Which is, he gave me my life back. For our 32nd anniversary, my
husband and I went to California Adventure and I walked for over six hours.”– Patient
“Dr. Caillouette did a great job on my knee – I haven’t
felt this good in years. All are very helpful and competent in the office.
A good system.” –
“Dr. Caillouette, thank you again for taking such good care of my
hip replacement of approximately four years ago. I’m still doing
