I very recently had total right hip replacement surgery by Dr. Bircoll at DeKalb Medical Surgery Center. The hip replacement has been a complete success and pain that I have experienced in the hip for a long time is gone. In addition, Dr. Bircoll and his staff are outstanding. They worked very hard at each step to make sure that I understood what to do and felt comfortable. They answered questions carefully and completely. I would highly recommend Dr. Bircoll to anyone needing hip surgery.

I fell off a ladder and shattered my calcaneus with displacement of the bones in my leg. Dr Bircoll put me back together....... A plate and 10 screws. He was very direct and told me the seriousness of my injury. It has been 10 months now and I can walk without a limp. I have not developed arthritis which is a great risk for this type of injury. I honestly believed that Dr. Bircoll saved my life. I highly recommend him. He is clearly the best. Thank you from the bottom of my heart Dr. B!
