I was referred to Dr. Hanoosh to evaluate my knee 10 months after my full knee replacement surgery. Dr. Hanoosh is an excellent and professional doctor however after waiting for two months for this appointment i was told upon check in, that Lovelace will no longer be taking United Healthcare after March so now i have to start over and find another surgeon that does take United Healthcare.

Very happy with Dr. Hanosh.



If I could give Dr. Hanosh a 6 on a scale of 5 I would. He is always the patient's advocate. Very personable and forward thinking.

I recently had a total hip replacement at Lovelace with Dr Christopher Hanosh. It was an amazing experience. He listened patiently to all my questions. He answered clearly and even asked "what else." I felt respected and that my input was important. Because of this, I had a high level of trust that he was making the best decisions for my complicated case. He expertly did the Direct Superior procedure which is the gold standard for hip replacements. The healing was quicker than I expected and my hip feels great. It became obvious to me that a lot of patient education and preventive procedures were done to ensure a successful outcome. There was a very pleasant surprise as I was not certain that could qualify for a spinal rather than a general anesthesia. This was made possible by anesthesiologist Dr Marcus's excellent guidance to Thomas Romero, CNA in finding a way to do a spinal on my back with scoliosis. All on staff in the orthopedic dept were extremely helpful, especially Carrie, Nurse Navigator who answered my calls promptly and completely. The stay in the hospital was also excellent. Kudos to all. I am a very satisfied patient. Lana Sceiford
