    Very Good

    Comments: In Dec., 2019 at a University Hospital in Chicago, I had to have a girdlestone procedure on my right hip. The surgery caused me to need a walker and a 5" heel/sole lift on my right shoe. The reconstruction surgery was canceled due to medical problems. Since the surgeon was moving out of state, he recommended his associates to do this hip reconstruction. None of these doctors would take the risk. Fortunately, I got an appointment with Dr. Alden who said he would do it. He gave me a thorough explanation as to possible neurologic/vascular complications. He did the surgery with NO complications. I now have equal leg length and can walk with a cane. Dr. Alden has extraordinary surgical talent and patients are fortunate to have him as their doctor. I am a retired Orthopedic Surgeon who practiced for 30 years. James R. Cox MD
