I don't have enough good things to say about Dr. McCandless. I am only 39 years old and I came to see him after one failed hip replacement and one failed hip revision. I was honestly ready to give up because I was in so much pain on a daily basis. I read about Dr. McCandless and his practice, but was initially hesitant because his bio says that he performs numerous robotic surgeries. My first hip replacement was done robotically, so I didn't think this was the route for me. However, Dr. McCandless looks at each case individually, he took all aspects of the situation into account; my age/active lifestyle, the number of surgeries I've had and my body type/structure. I was ready to go into debt to pay out of network for this surgery, but Dr. McCandless "saved me," in more ways than one because I found out at the last minute that he was covered by my insurance. My most recent hip revision was extremely complicated and Dr. McCandless knew he would perform the surgery manually, without the use of the robotic system because this was the best option for me. I am still rehabbing my hip, but this is the best I've felt in probably 4-5 years. This man is incredibly precise, incredibly thorough and in my estimation, he does brilliant work. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
