Testimonials

Lou Taffy

"My knee started bothering me and several friends recommended Dr. Ollivierre. I've had 4 procedures done by him, both knees and both hips. My right hip was a bigger deal as Dr. Ollivierre had to first remove the old replacement I'd had done years ago back in Georgia.

I was up and about in just three weeks. Now, at 83, I can dance for 1 - 2 hours non-stop. I can out-dance the average 40 year-old man.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Ollivierre. He's a doctor and a friend and I'm pain-free! I recommend him to people all the time. I assure them they're in good hands."

Lou Taffy - Knee and Hip Replacements


"Patients like Lou are the reason I became an orthopaedic surgeon. He sees his 80s as a time to enjoy all that life has to offer. And I wholeheartedly agree."

- Dr. Carl Ollivierre

Diane Washburn

"I had my first hip replacement in 2005. I spent a week in the hospital and another week in a rehab facility. When I needed the other hip replaced, I called FMI and met with Dr. Ollivierre. He told me about anterior hip replacement and how it involves a lot less recovery time. After this hip replacement, I was home in four days and bounced back three times faster. Now I can tend to my orchid garden without a walker and without pain. I'm back 100 percent!"

Diane Washburn - Hip Replacement


"Anterior approach is a genuine breakthrough in hip replacement surgery. It requires far less hospital and recovery time. And, like Diane, most people needing hip surgery are eligible."

- Dr. Carl Ollivierre

Charlie Futrell

"I'm 90 and I've been a patient of Dr. Ollivierre's for years. I've competed in 116 triathlons, including 6 Iron Man World Championships. I did my first when I was 72 and placed 1st in the U.S. and 3rd in the world for my age group. I've also done 5 Olympic Distance Championships and competed in over 450 road races.

After completing a few triathlons this past summer, I became the first man over 90 to do so in U.S. history.

Dr. Ollivierre is a fine orthopaedist -- he keeps me going so I can keep competing and doing what I love."

Charlie Futrell - Physical Therapy


"What can I say about someone like Charlie other than he is a true inspiration? I'm just happy to help him stay pain-free so he can continue to pursue his passions."
