“I am two weeks out from bilateral anterior hip replacements. When I came to see Dr. Hakim I was in great in pain, I could not return to work the pain was so bad. We scheduled the surgeries and two weeks after I feel like a new man. I can already walk unassisted and plan to be back to work 1 month after bilateral hip replacements. If you are considering hip replacement schedule an appointment with Dr. Hakim to discuss anterior hip replacement. ”

“I lived with extreme pain in both knees for years, I was not able to work for more then 15 minutes without having to sit down. I decided the pain was enough and researched on the internet for a highly skilled surgeon who would do bi-lateral knee replacements.

My search led me on a 200 mile drive for an appointment with Dr. Richard Buch, this was a short distance for the type of relief I have today.

Prior to surgery I had CTs on both of my knees to send to ConforMIS. Dr. Buch explained ConforMIS will make custom implants specific for me that will replicate my original knee. I liked that the implants were made from my knee anatomy, it made sense.14 days after bi-lateral knee replacements I walked into Dr. Buchâs office with no cane, walker, or any assistance.

My wife had shoulder problems for years, after my surgery we made an appointment to see Dr. Buch for her shoulder. Dr. Buch diagnosed her problem and had an excellent outcome following surgery as well. I have recommended numerous colleagues and friends who have also seen Dr. Buch with similar outcomes. Dr. Buch and his staff are absolutely outstanding, you will not have a better experience with any other surgeon. If you are considering joint replacement Dr. Buch is the surgeon of choice. I put him 10 feet above the the top shelf, I can not praise him enough.”

“I had my first knee replaced with another surgeon and it became infected. I was told I may be facing an amputation due to the severe infection. I was referred to Dr. Buch and he diagnosed me with a strep infection in my knee, he said we can save your leg. He worked to fight the infection and today I have my leg.

Over the past 25 years my other knee had been extremely painful and limited my life, I hobbled around for nearly three decades. Dr. Buch replaced my knee with a Conformis implant. He said Conformis makes the implant to fit my knee, resulting in a precise fit that would preserve healthy tissue. Today I am back to running, golfing, walking up stairs, and becoming athletic again. Knee pain no longer forces me to modify my activities or limit my life. I have referred numerous people to Dr. Buch for orthopedic needs, I highly recommend him to anyone needing a joint replacement.”

“Dr. Hakim, was professional and had a very pleasant bedside manner. It was very convenient to have his office close to Plano Medical Center, early morning office hours, and onsite x-rays. His staff, from the lady at the front desk to his assistant were very courteous as well. At each appointment I felt that I received the best care possible and now that my treatment is complete, I have the results to prove it! Dr. Hakim, you have my deepest gratitude!”

“Dr. Buch is a true professional and knows what he is doing at all times. If you are anxious about your condition he will take time to talk to you and give you the best advise he can. If you, like me, "have been there and done that" he knows he can kid with you and give you a bit of a hard time jokingly. My first hip replacement was done when I was 41 years old and no other orthopaedic surgeon would touch me since I was so young. I took my x-rays and went to Dr. Buch. He took a look at the x-rays, came into the exam room and asked me when I wanted to schedule my surgery. I stammered and was ready to make excuses, but Dr. Buch looked at me and said," You didn't come to me to just be sitting in a little room." So, we set the date. Afterwards, besides physical therapy being hurting a bit, I was great !! Then six years ago I started having pain again, so back to Dr. Buch. He just said, "I told you 12 or 13 years." He was right again. So I had a replacement replaced. I am here to tell anyone that has any questions, comments or concerns...the man knows his stuff, will do the very best that technology allows him to do and don't be surprised if every other doctor tells you something negative and Dr. Buch pulls a rabbit out of the hat for you. HE'S GREAT !!! ”

“Dr. Buch and his staff are wonderful they really take the time to listen the problem that you are having and do care about keeping you out of pain. Three years ago i had a very bad accident and severly broke the tibia platue of my right leg as well as the fibia. The tibia platue is the bottom of you knee and supports majority of the weight that your body carries on the tibia side of the leg.. I underwent sugery to repair the massive fracture, basically my leg was in about 40 pieces. After the sugery was performed i had a steel metal plate running from just the center part of the bottom of my knee down the tibia that went about half way down my leg... There were i believe 11 screws that held my knee and leg in place the majority of the screws were drilled just below the knee and some screws shown the tibia as well. After the sugery i noticed that when the fractured and sugery had healed i could not walk correct because of the pain from the trauma and sugery... I went on like this until i could no longer take the pain of walking.. I went to see Dr. B as i call Dr. Buch about a year and a half after my sugery and just the awful pain from walking... Dr. Buch and staff type me as a new patient and explained to me why i was having pain in my knee sso bad. I could not strighten my leg so Dr. Buch explained that the way i healed from the fracture and sugery left my leg in a 5 degree angel.. So sugery was set up to do a total knee replacement.. Dr Buch did the sugery on Aug. 5th 2013.. Now I'm in physical therapy and all is going well there is still a lot of pain from the sugery and putting strain on it from P.T. but i know that it's just for a little while longer.. my knee it's getting straighter and I'm abel to more and more weight on there daily.. I just want to say thank you to Dr. Buch and staff that have been with me from the very first time i walked in the office... I'm thankful that i found a good a compitiant Dr. That knew what to do even in such a case as mine.. Alot of my family asked me A total knee replacement?? are you sure you want that at your age because i am 36 yrs. Thank You to Dr. Buch and staff that have put me on the path of walking without pain and being abel to bend my knee stright.. I would recommend even my family if they have pain in one of the joints of the body to seek help from Dr Buch.. Thank You from the bottom of my heart. ”

  • Bi-lateral knee replacement

“Over the past 5 years I have lived with extreme pain in both knees. I was a marathon runner for some time and the wear and tear depleted the cartilage in my knees. After numerous injections and limited mobility I decided enough was enough, I did not want to take pain medication for the rest of my life. I made the decision to have bi-lateral knee replacements with Dr. Buch. The procedure went flawlessly and after pushing myself in rehab I was good as new again. I currently work out 2-3 days a week and get 10-15 miles in each day. My only regret is not having the procedure 4 or 5 years ago as I missed out on so much.

To celebrate my recovery my wife and I went horseback riding 7 months after surgery. I bent the left knee to reach the stirrup, I exerted enough strength to swing up in the saddle, and finally after a two hour ride I dismounted the horse impacting both knees when I hit the ground. I did all three with no pain, I was very proud and pleased. If you are considering knee replacement you have to make an appointment with Dr. Richard Buch. I have the utmost respect for him as a highly skilled surgeon and outstanding person, he gave me my life back. My advice to you following surgery is stay committed to physical therapy and your only regret will be not having the procedure done sooner.”

“I have spent my entire life driving and building race cars, so at 63 I have seen my fair share of orthopedic doctors. In may 2013 I needed my second knee replacement and Dr. Hakim was recommended by my insurance company. What a great find. In all my experiences I have never met a doctor as humble and concerned about his patients as Dr. Hakim. His work should be the gold standard. He did my surgery on May 7th, I was released from the hospital in three days and on May 22nd I WALKED unassisted in to his office. I returned to my race car shop in 4 weeks and in three months I had 90% of my leg motion back. In August 2013 I was back in my race car. Thanking Dr. Hakim just doesn't seem to be enough since he gave this 63 year old kid his life back. ”

“Orthopaedic surgeons at the premier US medical centers have performed on and around me. Finally, I have the good fortune of being under the care of Dr. Richard Buch - the ultimate physician and a caring human being. If your condition is so severe that your chronic or acute pain continues, ask for PSTIM non-drug pain therapy to reduce your pain significantly; it's working for me.”

“Words cannot convey our gratitude for the gift Dr. Buch gave my father Harold in restoring the use of his injured leg. The great service he provides through his surgical skill is enriched by the great kindness and care he shows for his patients. ”

“I consider myself blessed to have found Dr. Buch because I do not think my arm would have healed like it has without him. He is a wonderful doctor and I am proud to join the countless others whom he has worked so hard to restore their quality of life when it seems quite impossible. I have enjoyed being under his care and working with the friendly staff. I will forever be appreciative! ”

  • Knee Revision/Replacement

Larry Edward Bishop

“I was very impressed with DR Victor Hakim from the first time that my wife and I met him. I had already had a knee replacement on my left knee three years ago, but I never completely got over it. I had a knot come up behind that same knee causing me to have lots of pain, and my knee would sometimes buckle. When I came to DR. Hakim he had some tests done and found that I had a Baker's Cyst. He first gave me some meds to reduce the swelling, but it didn't work. After several weeks he recommended a Knee Revision/Replacement. My first thought was "Please Lord, not again!"

He didn't waste any time getting me set up for surgery. He was forth coming and very informative making sure that we understood what I should expect before and after the surgery.

Everything went vey well on May 21st, 2013 the day of my surgery. My wife said that DR Hakim sent word several times during the surgery either by phone or had someone come out and talk to her and my family about my progress. My family and friends were very pleased with the way he was up front with everything, and he had great bedside manners. He treated me like he cared about me as a patient, and that's important.

I was able to go home from the hospital a few days later and started my rehab there. The therapists that came out were great, even though they worked me hard. When I went back to DR Hakim for my first follow-up, he was amazed at the way I was progressing with my recovery. Even my wife says that she could tell a big difference in the way I've done this time from before.

I went back on July 10th, and DR Hakim gave me the okay to go back to work on Monday with no restrictions. I just need to take it slow and easy the first couple of weeks, because I am on my feet all day. I guess common sense should tell me that. I have done so much better this time, and I would HIGHLY RECCOMEND DR HAKIM to anyone that needs a knee replacement or anything that has to do with your limbs. THANK YOU DR HAKIM for what you've done for me. I will always be grateful!

Larry Bishop”

“My leg was broken for 2 years and no one could fix it, until I met Dr. Buch. He fixed my leg with one surgery, while i had had 5 before I met him that didn't help it heal. He is incredibly intelligent and has a great sense of humor. He made me feel like there was hope and that it would be better. Because of him, I can walk, run, skip....whatever I want. Dr. Buch is that guy that can fix bones that no one can fix. I'm so glad that I had the chance to know such a wonderful person and wonderful doctor. I recommend him to anyone.”
