“Major surgery is a daunting and scary experience. Dr. Forbes was terrific in his knowledge, expertise, confidence and calming reassurance I would do amazing! And I did! Never for one second did I second guess my decision or selection of Dr. Forbes and his staff. Every aspect of my surgery was considered, reviewed and discussed; down to a year later! I have since recommended him and Tri-County to endless amounts of people; I feel incredible. Haha, I’m kinda sad I won’t see Dr. Forbes again!”

She was able to get back to her daily on-goings within a couple of months. She's ready to go up and down the stairs, go out to do her laundry, shopping, etc. She exercises on the regular and seems happy overall now. Thank you, Dr. Forbes!”

“I had an appointment with Dr. Forbes about an ongoing hip problem. Dr. Forbes did a complete exam and sent me for X-rays to determine the proper course of action. He explained my options answering any questions. I decided that a hip replacement would give me the mobility I desired. He then gave me a series of exercises to do before the surgery and a written explanation of the operation and what to expect. This was very helpful to relieve my anxiety. The day after the surgery Dr. Forbes visited me in the hospital. Thanks to him my mobility has returned much quicker than I expected and I thanked him for this at my post-op appointment. It was at this appointment that he discovered a slight limp I still had that I was unaware of. He recommended physical therapy to resolve this problem which I am undergoing. These extra steps to ensure a patient's complete success is much appreciated.”
– Margaret D.

– Dana K.
“After years of suffering through the pain and lack of flexibility caused by my deteriorated arthritic hip, I decided it was time to have it replaced. I did a lot of research to find the best surgeon to perform a minimally invasive anterior hip replacement, since I wanted to recover fast. This research led me to Dr. Forbes. Dr. Forbes took the time to understand my needs and desires, and answer all of my questions. He then examined me and determined that I would be an appropriate candidate for this procedure. I decided to move forward and schedule the surgery. The surgery went very smoothly and I walked out of the hospital the same day. Before the surgery, one of my legs was longer than the other, and I had to use a spacer in one of every pair of my shoes to even my legs out. Dr. Forbes was also able to make my legs the same length during the surgery, so now I have no more need for shoe spacers again! A month later as a write this, I am pain-free and walking normally again. I could not have expected better results. I was very impressed by Dr. Forbes’ attention to detail before and after the surgery, his genuine concern for me, and his outstanding surgical skills. I highly recommend Dr. Forbes to anyone who is looking for a joint replacement surgeon. He is clearly at the top of his field!”
– Charles K.
“Dr. Forbes is kind, considerate, explained the procedure in layman's terms, and was not in a rush.”
