“Sam” Nowicki on her experience with Dr. Antonocci and the Anterior Hip surgery


When I met him, as soon as he walked through the door, He just put me at ease. His demeanor. His calmness. The way he explained everything. And you know I thought right away, before I would even say yes or whatever. He said he works out of different hospitals. I didn’t know that. And he only had certain days left on his calendar to work out at OSF where I wanted to go. So December was taken. January was taken, and I said, “When’s the next time? When’s the next time?” And he said, “February.” I got it, I want it; mark me down, and that was it. I want you. Well that lady there, was going to be having hip surgery by Dr. Antonacci. And she was bonkers. Well, I was a little nervous too. You know you’re skeptical when you have an operation. And she said, “She doesn’t have a walker. She doesn’t have a cane.” Well, I healed so quickly for my age. He’s astonished at how well I did. I’m 80, so… I did pretty good. And I told Dr. Antonacci, “I even jog.” “Don’t you dare jog.” He said, “You’re not fully ready for jogging yet.” I mean, that’s how good I feel. This hip operation. You know when I went to see him, he asked me “How’s your hip?” Oh, did I have a hip operation? I didn’t know that. I don’t even remember that. Have faith in him. Just have faith in him. I have to use this quote, “Dr. Antonacci has the artistic, surgical hands of Michelangelo, and I have the artwork to prove it. He’s good; he’s great, and I have passed his name on to so many people. And I have run into so many people who had him. “Oh! You had Dr. Antonacci!” Everybody’s talking about Dr. Antonacci.
