Dr. James Shapiro Patient Testimonials


Dr. Shapiro, you have been such a great surgeon and I really appreciate all three hip replacements you have performed for me, my right hip in 2000, left hip 2003 and right hip again in 2013 due to a fall which fractured my hip bone and required a new hip implant.

I am happy to say I am back at work and on my feet all the time, walking and driving comfortably. I am so fortunate to be climbing ladders and taking care of the many store locations I am responsible for after my hip procedures. Regaining my ability to work and enjoy life has been a real treasure and I can’t thank you enough.

I continue to be amazed that I was able to walk in the hospital three hours after I was back in my hospital room and left the hospital in a day and a half. My rehabilitation program at home was very helpful and I continue to be amazed that I was back at work so quickly after my rehab was complete.

Thank you again for everything! ~ Jerry

Hi Dr. Shapiro. I can’t thank you enough for all you did to get me back on my feet after you performed my double knee replacement back on Jan 8 2013, I have been able to regain my mobility – going for longer walks and standing up for long periods of time, pain free. The pain prior to my surgeries never went away and for the last year before the procedures I was in almost constant pain.

Before my surgery I was unable to do most physical activities and could barely stand on my feet for very long. I am so appreciative of all the great information you discussed with me prior to my surgery at my pre-consult visit and your complete honesty regarding what to expect. You took as much time with me during my office visit as I needed and I felt very reassured after our appointment. A deep note of thanks from both me and my wife and I am appreciating your skills every day….

My wife and I recently completed a trip to Europe and I was able to walk long distances and enjoy the beautiful countryside which I know would not have been possible prior to my surgery. ~ Mark

Thank you Dr. Shapiro for a great experience with my left total hip surgery, which you performed two years ago, and went absolutely perfectly, on my one year anniversary everything looked completely fine and it feels great. And then in October 2013, you replaced my right hip and a couple of days ago I had my two year and one year exam and x-ray and everything looks great.

You have been extremely professional and very helpful through this whole experience. You answered all my questions,spent as much time with me as needed to explain what the procedure and rehabilitation process would be, and I am very grateful for finding you and continue to wish you all the best.

Thank you Dr. Shapiro for getting me back on my feet after my right partial knee replacement surgery this year in March (2014). As you know I was limping pretty bad on that leg and I could barely walk based on the tremendous amount of pain I was experiencing.

The past six months since my surgery I am feeling really good and back to enjoying many of my favorite activities. A few months ago I was feeling so good I waxed my boat, car and Suburban truck on my feet for quite a bit of time and my knee was feeling really good and pain free. I ride my bike 10 miles and sit comfortably on my boat enjoying fishing.

I am so happy with the results of my surgery I just wanted to say thank you so much!! ~ Leroy

Thank you Dr. Shapiro for providing my son Jeffrey with a great internship experience several summers ago when he was trying to decide what his professional major was going to be.

Fortunately for me, a few years later, when I was experiencing hip pain in both my hips, and based on my son’s raving review of his time spent with you and your team, I knew just who I wanted to see to resolve my issues.

I am so grateful to you and your team for all your patience and guidance during my hip replacement experience. I am now able to return to the work and travel I so enjoyed before my hip pain. ~ Janet

Thank you Dr. Shapiro, so much for answering all my questions prior to my knee replacement surgery. I waited as long as I could before having my procedure since I work on my feet and knee to move about as much as possible. But one day I knelt down and the pain in my knee just shot up like a bolt of lightening and I knew it was time to get it done. You were so kind to spend as much time as I needed to answer all my pre-surgery questions. And you were very honest with me regarding what to expect from my new knee replacement.

Many thanks and I wish you and your great staff all the very best!! ~ Judy

Our entire family has been privileged to meet you and have you as our Orthopedic Surgeon. When my wife Sheila fell during a trip to New York a few years ago, the local hospital patched her up until she could get home to Kenosha and have you complete the knee cap repair properly.

You repaired my torn meniscus many years ago and I felt so very comfortable having you perform my bi-lateral knee replacement and replacing both my knees last June (2103). The advice you provided before my procedures, including how important it was to strengthen my knees and legs prior to surgery was so important to how quickly I recovered from the procedure. I was amazed at how quickly I was able to walk the next day in the hospital and begin my post-surgical physical therapy.

All my friends were amazed at how quickly I was able to get back on my feet and become active again. I was so excited that I could return to the gym and enjoy the elliptical equipment again as well as.

But the best of all is, I am pain free. Thank you so much for everything!! ~ Ron & Sheila
