Reconstructive Hip Surgery


Admitted to Lenox Hill through the ER due to a brutal fall. I needed surgery next day and did not know Dr. Cooper. Wow – it was really fortunate that he was assigned my case. I was in great pain and really scared because it happened all so suddenly, but after meeting him I was OK – explained everything – great bedside manner. Felt great after surgery and home in 2 days – no pain meds needed at home and walking amazingly well 2 days after. I am active in the gym and was told I should be almost 100% in about 3 months time. I know every case is different, but it is a good approximate goal for me to focus on. Great doctor.

On January 2014, I had a total hip replacement. My overall experience was very positive. His surgical coordinator, Natalie, was wonderful. She made me felt at ease from the moment I set the appointment until the day of surgery. This is my second hip replacement the first one was in a different location and to compare the care, doctor and hospital, I would totally recommend Dr. Cooper and Lenox Hill Hospital.


Dr. Cooper’s staff was extremely nice and easy to deal with. I was able to get an appointment the same week, and was pleasantly surprised when he saw me right on time. He made me feel very at ease, answered all my questions, and we were able to work out a plan for my hip problem while avoiding surgery. I am more than a month into treatment and already much better! Thanks Dr. Cooper! I highly recommend him for anyone with a hip issue.


I can’t imagine a better hip specialist than Dr. Cooper. A good listener and diagnostician, he quickly identified a pain-causing, movement-limiting problem two other orthopedists had missed. He explained the problem very clearly, pointing it out on x-rays, but he was nevertheless careful to have a different specialist (in an unrelated office) rule out another slightly possible cause of the pain before recommending surgery. The hip surgery Dr. Cooper did perform was so perfect, no pain medication of any kind was used after it! In a follow-up appointment, Dr. Cooper was kind enough to satisfy our curiosity by showing us actual pictures and video of the surgery. Many might not want to see something like that, but, after the successful surgery, it was amazing to see what actually was done on inside the body.

Very easy appointments, he spends plenty of time with me and always explains things so that I can understand. Helped me tremendously with my hip surgery, and I have a great result! Thanks Dr. Cooper !

I don’t normally take the time to fill out these surveys, but Dr. Cooper is one of the kindest and most knowledgeable doctors I’ve ever been too visit. He took lots of time with me to help figure out what was wrong with my hip, where many doctors before had told me nothing was wrong. He was able to fix it and I am feeling much better. I will always be grateful and would recommend him without hesitation to anyone. It was a great experience.
