Hip Surgery Patient Wins Gold Medal
I am a thrower in college and had severe lower back pain. I had a MRI done which showed nothing and did therapy with the school trainer. My mom talked to people at Henry Ford and they recommended Dr. Makhni, he offered to see me that day. When I saw him he spent time talking to me and moving my legs around to figure out the problem. Since I saw him and received an injection that he recommended I have felt good for the first time in about a year and a half. I would highly recommend him to anyone
Dr. Makhni was very professional and explained my condition to me and what procedure he was going to do. Very impressed at the difference of my hip just ten days after surgery. Have to say Dr. Makhni's bedside manners are awesome.
Dr. Makhni is one of the most thorough, engaging, smart and respectful physicians I have ever encountered. He lives up to what you would expect from his educational pedigree and impressive professional resume, but adds a keen high touch manner to his practice. Great experience, great doc.
Dr. Makhni is an excellent surgeon. I was referred to him after having an MRI that showed I had lateral and medial meniscus tears in my knee along with bone spurs. Upon meeting him he shared the options I had for my situation. I was impressed with his knowledge and expertise and felt very comfortable in having the surgery. On the day of my surgery I felt 100% better and was back to work in 2 days. Arthroscopic surgery and Dr. Makhni has given me back the quality of life I deserved and needed.
He is caring and takes the time to answer all questions. Does not talk down by explaining everything in laymen's terms. Two thumbs up.
Easy to talk to, explain what is going on and gives you options. Great guy, everything I did with him was first class.
Dr. Makhni is an excellent surgeon, who did wonders for my knee. I was back on my feet in no time. He always listens first and then addresses each and every question. He is also reluctant to rush into anything. I feel very comfortable with him.
Had my first surgery ever (ACL) with Dr. Makhni. I couldn't have been happier with his performance. He always very quick to answer emails, texts, or phone calls during my recovery process.
I am currently three months out from my hip arthroscopy and my hip is doing great. I just started running again and am already doing upper body exercises in the gym, as well as some lower body ones. Dr. Makhni is a very kind and professional doctor. My hip is slowly getting stronger each day and I know that within a the 6 month period that I was told a full recovery would take I will be back to normal. I strongly recommend Dr. Makhni to any patient.
Very impressive physician! Intelligent and compassionate. Dr. Mahkni listened to my concerns, provided options, and charted a course of action suitable to my injury. Generally, rotator cuff repairs take 4-6 months for recovery. At only 3 months post-surgery, I am nearly pain free and have great range of movement. I am confident in his ability as a surgeon, and would recommend him to anyone.
Great with follow ups.
Dr Makhni was professional, caring and honest with me. Couldn't ask for more!
I was very pleased with the way Dr. Makhni dealt with my labral tear in my shoulder. Being a pitcher in baseball, surgery was not something I wanted to do, so Dr. makhni put together a plan that fit my best interests. I received a PRP injection from him and have responded well from it. Dr Makhni is very easy to reach and helps patients understand how to deal with their specific injury.
I had a great experience with Dr. Makhni. When I met in his office, he reviewed my medical file, test results, and discussed in detail options available to provide comfort. I immediately felt comfortable with his recommendations, he was thorough and took the time to explain my options. I trusted his opinion and followed through with the surgery. Follow up visits have left me with great confidence that he was the perfect surgeon for my procedure. Thank you Dr. Makhni - you're the best!!
I thought Dr. Makhni was very good. I'm young, my mom was with me. So more importantly, my mom thought he was awesome. Especially when he called me, just to see how I was doing.
Terrific experience start to finish with Dr. Makhni. Responsiveness, care, professionalism and of course skilled surgical talent. Perfect balance of high touch/high tech approach.I am 2 months post surgery to repair a shoulder bone spur and biceps tendonitis and would recommend him to anyone, any age for any ortho/sports med needs. As a person and as a practitioner, first class in every way!
Dr. Makhni is a very good surgeon and I am glad he is my doctor
