Best Doctors for both hips tears

After 13 years of pain, I finally found out that I have a Gluteus medius tear and a labral tear.  I have found a doc in Chicago (Dr. Domb)who does GM tears and a doc in Colorado ( Dr.Philipon) who does labral tears.  Prior to this, every doctor told me I had radiated pain coming from my spine.  I no longer run (30 years of running) and don't lift weighs (10 yrs ) either.  I now hurts to just walk, stand. etc.  I can't put weight on my right side going up steps.  I'm 58 and feel like I'm 90.  I need to decide where to go for surgery.  I've read that there is a great doc in the NYC area but I can't seem to find him in a google search.

Hi there!

Well, I would suggest looking for medical facilities that offer orthopedic care in a particular region and then looking at their doctor profiles. It might also be helpful to comment a few patient reviews before deciding on one.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!

The Dr. to see in NYC for a hip problem is Dr. Bryan Kelly.  He just operated on me 6 weeks ago.  I had a gluteus medius tear along with some other issues.  Dr. Kelly is the best!  Good luck!
