Do not trust the executives of Nebraska Orthopaedic Hospital when they say that your surgery is covered by your insurance. DO NOT believe them. Cross-check personally. If you do not, then you would end up with humongous bills, which would run into thousands of dollars. I have faced this personally and want to warn patients about it through this review.

As for me, I have decided to seek care somewhere else

I visited Nebraska Orthopaedic Hospital for a right foot bone spur removal. NOH has the latest technology to perform various orthopedic operations.

The nursing staff and doctors at NOH were friendly and efficient. Preoperative and postoperative nurses were excellent. The pre- and postsurgery instructions were properly relayed. My procedure went off well.

I pray that I should not undergo any more surgery, but if I need then I will do it here as I know I will be in safe hands

My mother was a patient at NOH for a few days after right hand surgery. Everything about this hospital is praiseworthy. The location is amazing. The premises is very clean, and one would need a high-powered magnifying glass to find something. The doctors and nurses are the best out there. They are very friendly, knowledgeable, and very professional. These folks took great care of my mother and tended to all her needs. Superb! Highly recommended.

I have had two or three surgeries here over the past three decades, and every operation was a success. Seeing the success rate and the care, I decided to undergo a spur removal here. Unfortunately, it went horribly wrong. The surgeon then tried to pin the blame on me and said that I was not following his instructions to the “T.”

I could not believe it. I was following every instruction to the last dot, and the doctor himself had praised me at the previous visit, saying that he was pleased with the way I was approaching the surgery.

As if the botched surgery was not enough, the billing went haywire. I was charged in thousands, and the billing executives kept on hounding me, despite my insurance approving the operation. Very disappointed with the whole experience. I am planning to take my business somewhere else.

My husband had been dealing with messed up tendons for quite some time. He was suggested this hospital by his colleagues, and these folks have been doing an excellent job in trying to get him back on track. There has been constant communication between the hospital and Jacob, and every surgery is planned keeping his schedule in mind. Very impressed with them till now
