After many months of knee pain and no solutions ( had already had a knee revision and replaced spacer)I was referred to Dr Ihekweazu. He listened to me and Identified that the issue was my hip not my knee as every one else was saying. Had a total hip replacement 12/22/21 and no more pain in the knee. I can walk again! Dr Ihekweazu was a blessing in my life and if I ever need any more replacement surgeries he will be the one to do it. I highly recommend him. He is great!

I met with Dr. Ihekweazu for the first time today for a consultation and I was very impressed and comfortable with the meeting. He took the time to reassure me of all of the details regarding the procedure and the specifics. I really appreciate the time that he spent to be sure that I had all of the information I needed.

My experience with Dr. Ihekweazu was extraordinary. Not only did he appear concerned and cabable upon our first meeting, he later proved to be an excellent surgeon. I had a right knee replacement and, not only was my pain minimal, my recovery was in record time. I followed my physical therapists' routines and was walking without assistance after only three weeks, which was not bad for a 75-year-old patient. I can easily recommend him to anyone looking for a talented, caring and competent orthopedic surgeon.

Dr. Ihekweazu is great. I had a total knee done after years of arthritis paid that had caused a deformity. My quality of life has been increased drastically because of Dr. Ihekweazu and his talent. Can't say enough how much I recommend seeing him if you have knee pain. Really has made all the difference in the world in my life. My downtime for this surgery was about 3 months, and now I have more mobility than I've had in 20 years. Great experience and actually can't wait for him to do my other knee!!

I had total hip replacement surgery performed by Dr. Ihekweazu. He and his staff are awesome. Everything was thoroughly explained, my questions were answered, and anxieties were calmed before the procedure. The Fondren hospital staff were exceptional before, during, and after the surgery. I am completely satisfied with the results, and outcome.

My husband had a complicated hip replacement case, since the first interview with Dr Ihekwaezu we felt we were in great hands. He is a professional and caring doctor, he explained in detail every step of the plan and did an exceptional job, we will always be grateful to him and his wonderful team; special thanks to Ana for taking care of us, always with a smile.

I can say that a few months after my surgery I couldn't even remember I had had knee surgery. I did as he prescribed and worked with a physical therapist, did my exercises at home and now I cannot believe how I don't feel any pain and I can kneel down to pick something up with no issue. It was so perfect. Dr Ihekweazu was so kind to me as I am sure he is to all of his patients. The great thing is Dr. Ihekweazu is a perfectionist. He explains everything and does his job with the greatest skill you can imagine. To me, no one could have done a better job. This is my 2nd review but I just wanted to get back to him and tell him how grateful I am. He is truly brilliant and talented.

Dr. Ihekweazu is awesome. He is caring, compassionate and really listens when I am telling him something. Which I greatly appreciate. Ana in his office is great, she's responsive, friendly and knows all the operations of his office. She is easy to talk with and responds to questions and patient needs more quickly than I would have ever expected. My surgical experience has been exemplar with Dr. Ihekwezau, his knowledge of knee replacements and his ability to educate his patients about the entire process reduced my stress level over this surgery greatly. Thank you for making a difficult surgery bearable.I would highly recommend Dr. Ihekweazu, and when its time for my other knee to be done, this is where I will be going. So Please don't leave the area.

Dr Ugo is hands down one of the best people I’ve had the pleasure of interacting with, his skills, talent and knowledge is the reason I chose him for my hip replacement surgery. The way he explained everything to me made me comfortable with him. I’ve spoken with other surgeons about performing the surgery, it wasn’t explained very well, nor was the treatment. Dr Ihekweazu went above his scope to make me feel better about my hip replacement. Thanks Doc

Dr. Ihekweazu did a full knee replacement on me and I had absolutely no pain and was walking in two weeks without use of a walker or cane. I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor. Dr Ihekweazu’s bedside manners, attention to detail, availability to answer questions at any time makes you feel very comfortable and assured that you’re in good hands. Makes you feel you’re important to him. Tremendous staff, everybody was very helpful and attentive. I will definitely recommend anybody needing knee replacement to Dr Ihekweazu, he is absolutely the best.

I was seen quickly and diagnosed in the same visit. A solution was suggested and was successful . The physician was extremely attentive and conveyed his opinion in an understandable manner and with a high level of confidence. I was very satisfied with the quick response to my injury and accurate assessment of my condition. I couldn't have been treated better. Thank you

Upon meeting Dr. Ugo Ihekweazu I felt that he had a good disposition with a simple & a straightforward personality. He was a nice man, yet very professional and a concerning doctor. I could tell that he was a very good doctor and he proved to be just that. He was very thorough in reading the bone scan, x-ray etc. He went over all the test & notes and included me in the discussion. He asked me many questions & took into consideration my comments and concerns. I give him the highest of recommendations for anyone looking for an orthopedic surgeon. In fact the two doctors I had appointments with at Fondren's Orthopedic (Dr Ihekweazu & Goytia) were both first class and the finest surgeon's I have ever met.

DR. Ihekweazu is amazing! He is professional, caring and by far the best of the best! I had by far the best knee replacement. This was my second. I had NO complications and the pain was minimal compared to what was done and in comparison to the first one. He and his nurse Ana are amazing!!!!

It’s been 3 months since Dr. Ihekweazu performed total right hip arthroplasty on me, and now I am feeling great! A year ago, I had surgery (at another medical facility) and had an intramedullary rod placed in my broken right femur. I kept having a lot of unexplained pain, but the attending physician said I was healed. Sadly, I figured that the pain would be there the rest of my life. Then I was referred to Dr. Ihekweazu. He listened to me while I explained everything that had taken place. He was so attentive, patient, and caring. He ordered tests and found that I had traumatic hip arthritis, and needed total hip replacement. He took the time to explain the surgical procedure to me, in words I could understand, and that the rod would be removed. While removing the rod during surgery, he found an infection there, and was able to carefully clean up the infection and complete the total hip arthroplasty. Words can not say how thankful I am, that Dr. Ihekweazu found that infection and helped that awful pain go away, and repaired my hip too!
