P.V.

Dr. Guanche is amazing! When you go to a surgeon, you want someone who knows what he is doing. I loved his bedside manner, but truthfully I did not care as I was really concerned with his ability to cut and cure! I had labral tears on both hips, when Dr. Guanche was in surgery, he was able to clean up arthritis and shave down the bone so I could get back on the road to recovery quickly. The first hip was done in January, the second was done in March, I am already walking 30 minutes or doing the exercise bike.

The real judge should be my physical therapist who gets to see doctor’s work all the time. They expected me to be in a lot of pain when I started my first pt and we started so slowly, it was actually funny. I told him, I had no pain and that I could do more reps than what he wanted. He told me Guanche is an excellent surgeon! Take my pt’s word for it. I guess and both of my hips which hopefully will be back mountain biking in another month or so!
