Dr. Conflitti is one of the best( if not the best) anterior hip replacement surgeons in our area of Tyler, TX. Besides being a great surgeon, he has a great personally with his patients as well as his staff. I had a total hip replacement yesterday (March 8, 2021) . Went into surgery at 10:45 and left the hospital around 4:00 that evening. Being released that quick also depends on the each individuals health conditions prior to and after the surgery. I highly recommend him for this type surgery.

Dr. Conflitti replaced my 85 year old mother's hip and did a fabulous job. He is extremely intelligent and has good bedside manner. I was very concerned about someone this age having surgery. Two of my brothers are physicians, and they were also very impressed with Dr. Conflitti. My mother Ann Moran, and our entire family recommend Dr. Conflitti.

Dr. Conflitti and David Dewalch PA were so helpful when I had a knee injury due to a crash. I was seen within hours of going to the south broadway ER and got an MRI the same day. I could not have had a better experience. They were so helpful, caring, and fast. I now have no pain in my knee because of the immediate treatment.
