  • Dr. Vinton exponentially improved my life as a result of the surgeries he performed to replace both of my hips and the outstanding care that I received from him throughout the entire process. As a 46 year old athletic female with severe arthritis I was terrified at the thought of surgery. Dr. Vinton was the only surgeon that made me feel comfortable enough to make the decision to go through with surgery and it has been the best decision I ever made. The outcome was better than I could have ever imagined! Dr. Vinton freed me from years of chronic pain and gave me my normal life back.

    Dr. Vinton is an amazing surgeon who really listened to my fears and concerns and was willing to work with me to accommodate my wishes and to offer alternative possibilities when feasible. Dr. Vinton’s integrity and sense of responsibility toward his patients is second to none. On more than one occasion, he called me personally to deliver news or to check in to make sure that I was doing ok. Dr. Vinton goes above and beyond to make sure his patients are taken care of and I couldn’t trust another doctor more.

  • ...three sisters with three torn ACLs, all within the course of one year. Dr. Lahey was without a doubt where we needed to be and with him we were in the right hands. I thank him for allowing me to return to sports. I am now a college track and field athlete with two knees just as strong as anyone elses. My sister Mckenzie is back to track after a six month recovery and Victoria is recovering yet again from another ACL tear on her opposite knee. We have been through this process with Dr.Lahey enough to know he is a great surgeon. We would recommend Dr. Lahey to everyone, especially people who aren't about to let a torn ACL slow them down.

  • Dr. Vinton replaced my right hip in June of 2014. I was shocked at the quick recovery and was able to ski very comfortably that winter. Since I knew how great the results were, I decided to have my left hip replaced in April of 2015. I was able to waterski that summer and my life is back to where I want it to be – free of pain and physically able to do whatever I want.
