Patient Testimonials

Dr. Domb and his team are great to work with. After 6 surgeries elsewhere, I finally had my right hip surgery performed by Dr. Domb. I am 37 years old, and this is the best my hip has felt since I was 15! Even mentally, I feel great from the success of my hip surgery. I have recommended 2 friends to Dr. Domb, and they are absolutely thrilled with him too. Dr. Domb and his team are awesome!

Hi Dr. Domb, I want to let you know I am so happy with my hip replacement. At the time I could not walk without the help of a cane. Today I am back to walking 4 to 7 miles a day and doing Zumba and Mixfit. I will be 70 this year and I never felt better. I would've had it done sooner but It took a a long time to be diagnosed. However when I went to your office your assistance diagnosed my problem within five minutes. Thank you so much! If it wasn't for you I would be an invalid today. My Internist said I had osteoarthritis and there was nothing that could be done for me. I would recommend your robotic hip replacement procedure to everyone who needs a hip replacement. Thank you again!

Hip Replacement
4 / 5 stars

Over five years ago I was having terrible pain in my right hip. I was referred to Dr. Domb by Dr. Lorenz. Dr. Domb made a clinical diagnosis of a torn labrum in my right hip which was confirmed by an MRI and arthrogram.

He performed surgery arthroscopically rather than the traditional open procedure. This greatly reduced my recovery period and after following the physical therapy protocol I have had no problems with my right hip and have been pain free.

I would recommend Dr. Domb to anyone who is having hip problems of any kind, as well as any other joint problems.

Dr. Domb,

I just wanted to take a minute to express my thanks & gratitude to you on the amazing hip resurfacing you performed in December 2014. I am a bit overdue in this but wanted you to know how happy I am with the results. While I recognize this was not advisable, I did complete my 17th consecutive Chicago Marathon in October, just over 9 months post-surgery. My golf game is back 7 the mere ability to simply walk pain free still puts a smile on my face. I’ve recently taken up spinning which I know is likely preferred over running for the longevity of my implant. I’ve told countless people about your tremendous skill & would be more than happy to be a reference or a sounding board to any patient considering this procedure/ your practice. Thanks again & be well.

Sincerely,
Craig Isacson

Hip Comments:

  • "This was the best thing I could have done for myself. I have no pain and am able to do everything I want and need to do."
  • "Very happy with my hip and glad I had it done. It's good to be pain free."
  • "My hips are feeling good, generally. I am doing pretty much anything I want to do with my workouts and modifying what I need to. I feel good!"
  • "Doing great, walking five miles three times a week, working out at the health club and doing Pilates."
  • "Overall I have been very happy with the results and the recovery process! Healing time was quicker than most would expect, and I have been pretty much pain free in all activities."

After 3 years of finding ways to buy time and delay surgery, I decided to go ahead with right hip replacement surgery on November 12, 2013. I am a very active 61 year old and wanted to stay that way. My goals were to continue playing golf, tennis, hiking and biking. For 9 months prior to the surgery I used a trainer to take me through a "pre-hab" program to strengthen all the muscles that would be affected by the surgery in advance. After considerable discussion my surgeon, Dr. Benjamin Domb, with Hinsdale Orthopaedics in Chicago we selected the joint to be used as well as to use the anterior approach with robotic guidance. I wanted to rehab as quickly as possible and to straighten my right foot which had progressively turned out as my hip deteriorated.

It blew my mind I could walk so soon

- Karen Peterik, Anterior MAKO Total Hip Replacement







"Over a year ago, I suffered a spine and hip injury at work. I experienced a lot of pain, which affected my ability to stand, walk, sit, and sleep. I needed to constantly increase a dose of pain medicine to deal with my pain. Unfortunately, the medicine would become ineffective after a while.

My family doctor ordered an x-ray of my hip, and the result was obvious. I needed to see a hip specialist. I was then referred to Dr Benjamin Domb. During my first visit, Dr Domb, impressed me with his professional knowledge, courtesy and kindness.  He repeated an x-ray, and performed an injection to reduce my constantly increasing pain. After two weeks, during my second visit, the decision was made that I need to undergo a hip surgery. Dr Domb explained the whole process in detail, and assured me that everything will be OK. The surgery went well, during which, Dr Domb replaced my hip, using sophisticated medical technology, and leaving only a tiny scar line on my side.

Dr Domb, is a great, caring man, with impressive professional knowledge, skills, and great character. He is a perfectionist, paying attention to every detail during the whole treatment process.

Thanks to Dr Domb, three months after the surgery, I feel great, and the pain is completely gone. I do not feel any lack of performance, or limitations due to an artificial hip.

When walking to doctor's office, it is hard not to notice a wall full of his diplomas, achievements, and rewards, and I am a living proof of the knowledge, Dr Domb was recognized for.

Thank you so very much for changing and improving my life."

"Choosing Dr Domb to do my hip replacement surgery was one of the best decisions of my life. Why?  Because he literally gave me a new life!  My lifestyle always included daily activity be it biking, walking, roller-blading, cross-country skiing, yoga and it was getting harder and harder to move without pain. After three years of suffering, I decided to bite the bullet and find a doctor to perform my surgery.  I wanted someone that was sharp, modern yet rooted with experience.  Dr Domb and his staff not only fit the bill but super-ceded my expectations.  I was walking the same day as surgery and discharged the next.  It blew my mind that I could walk so soon without the same familiar pain in my hip joint.  Poof - it was just gone!  Recovery was much less of an ordeal than I expected as well.  In fact, I was back at my gym six weeks to the day taking my favorite spin and yoga classes.  I recently met a man who mentioned he had an artificial hip and I thought to myself, too bad he got an "artificial" hip when I have a "new" hip.  It's just had to think of it any other way for me.  It's my hip and it's wonderfully smooth and silky feeling.  And I'm so grateful for it!  Thank you Hinsdale Orthopedics, Dr Domb and your excellent staff!  I have a new life now to do all the things I want to do without giving it a moment's thought. My ongoing appreciation,"

"Dr Benjamin Domb performed my total hip replacement surgery (anterior method with MAKOplasty) on Feb. 4, 2013. I had been diagnosed six years earlier at age 58, and I was determined to research the best doctor for my procedure. Dr Domb gave a lecture on MAKOplasty related to hip surgery in July of 2009, and I was impressed. The orthopedic rock stars at Rush and NorthShore did not use this new technology. After further exploring his excellent credentials, I chose Dr Domb as my surgeon.

Success Stories of Hip Arthroscopy Patients:

Dr. Domb made me feel comfortable from the moment I stepped into the patient's room. He listened to my worries about my hip injury and recognized a potential problem right away. He asked me take some X-rays and get an MRI, which revealed to him that I had a hip impingement and labral tear, and he recommended a hip arthroscopy surgery.

- Rachel Masterson, LaGrange, IL

"My initial symptoms were pain in the hip flexor area. I honestly did not know what it was, then got an MRI which showed a tear. I was highly recommended to see Dr Domb and I am glad I did. He was very personable. He made it comfortable. When I met him the first time, I could tell right away that I was in good hands. Its been a long experience, but its worth it in the end. I thank Dr Domb and my therapist for my return to Baseball. If I had to recommend anyone for hip surgery, he would be the first on the list."

- Erik Lis (Minor League Baseball Player, Joliet Slammers)

"I have had hip pain for almost 4 years. I saw Dr Domb for the first time one year ago and had the surgery. By the first postop appointment I was so thrilled and excited the pain had already diminished. And by 3-4 months postop I was about 80% changed in pain. It felt so much better. That's when I decided to go forward with the left hip. I am so pleased. I was seen by 2 other orthopedic surgeons and decided surgery was to be done, but finding the right surgeon was the key. I would have been anywhere in the world and come back to see him. He was the only choice for the second hip and I could not be happier. It was a blessing to find him. It's not just finding a surgeon, it's not just finding a physician, it's making a friend, and that's what everyone in the office is here to be for you. As a mother of 4 children under 4 and younger, this is getting me back to chasing after the kids, run and jump and wrestle with them. Riding the bike and just being a mom again!
