I had my right hip replaced in Dec. of 2022, and it was such a good experience that I went back to UT Health Tyler to have the left hip replaced in Dec. of 2023. I live in Arkansas and it's a three hour drive, but it was well worth it. Dr. Conflitti and Dr. Dewalt and the staff took great care of me, and my recovery time was short and without much discomfort. I highly recommend this facility. John Wedehase Winthrop, Ar.

I have had 2 knee replacement surgeries, both By Dr Conflitti and David DeWalch. From the front desk office staff to the nurse you speak with on the phone to the physicians and entire nursing staff, each and all get a gold star. Each time I reached out to David DeWalch, I was promptly responded to, concerns were addressed. I have had a 5 star experience both times. Even in the midst of the software changeover with the attendant frustration, patients came first. I am confident when I recommend David DeWalch, Dr Conflitti and the entire staff.
