Jonathan Vigdorchik, M.D, Hip & Knee Surgeon, New York, Uniondale, NY || Patient Info || Patient Testimonials ‖ Patient Testimonials Submit Testimonials Francis 's Story 1 2 3 4 5 Francis has been dancing and acting professionally for over 30 years. After years of the intense physical demands placed on his body from performing and dancing, Francis began to suffer from an intense pain in his right hip, which extended down his leg. Everyday tasks, such as walking and taking stairs – let alone dance – were impossible. Francis wasn’t only terrified of the implications this could have on his career, he was scared he may never be able to walk again. Francis was recommended to Dr. Vigdorchik by his primary care physician, but he wanted to ensure he was the best fit for him. After meeting Dr. Vigdorchik, Francis’ concerns were quickly put to rest. He found his passion about, deep knowledge of and experience with the latest surgical hip procedures very reassuring. Francis also appreciated his patience; Dr. Vigdorchik listened to every one of his questions and thoroughly explained the procedure and recovery process associated with his surgery. After surgery, Francis was thrilled with the results: he regained full functioning in his hip and no longer experienced the shooting pains he’d endured conducting the most rudimentary tasks. Francis highly recommends Dr. Vigdorchik to his professional peers, and to anyone who struggles with hip pain, every chance he gets.
