The best orthopedic surgeon in Lebanon. He did for me a total hip surgery. He finished the surgery at 2:00 pm. Passed by me at 5:00 pm of the same day and asked me to walk with him in the corridor of the hospital. It was easy. Then asked me to go up and down the stairs. Also I did it. I am recovering quickly at home. I didn’t use neither walker nor stick. Thank you Dr Samer el Hage

I was originally skeptical due to the number of good reviews. This doctor is the real deal. He is patient and understanding and most importantly honest. Took his time to analyze the patient history and carefully diagnosed the issue. Recommend him to anyone who needs a good orthopedic doctor.

Being in the medical field, we find it hard to rate 5 stars any of the Doctors, but When it comes to Dr hage, you would blindly, and without a doubt rate his competencies, knowledge, care and approach 5 stars at least.My total hip replacement surgery was easier than a strain and my recovery was quicker and easier than any other surgery I have ever had.His humanitarian side and endless care would follow you home. His diagnosis are always right, his approach and techniques are always the latest and most advanced. With his passion to medicine comes his perfectionist’s character.I wonder what would you wish for as a patient when you have this “bouquet” of uniqueness?We are blessed to have you among us Dr hage, you are a talented blessing and beyond excellent.A well deserved belated review to highlight your humanitarian and professional sides.Thank you Dr hage for your silent sacrifices for patients, students and for the field.Keep shining

Writing a review about Dr. samer Hage is really challenging because our experience was totally perfect.People suffer on a daily basis from the repercussions of an unsatisfactory healthcare experience. My target is not only to thank Dr.Samer Hage but especially to alleviate this bitter experience for people who need an orthopedic surgeon. All details are worth telling to show our deep appreciation and especially to help anyone who need an orthopedic treatment to have the same excellent chance we had with Dr. Hage.My husband (56 year old) suffered from a hip injury and could not follow up normal daily activities and especially his favourite sports without serious pain. It was obvious that he needed a Total hip replacement and more obvious that we were lucky and blessed to have landed at Dr. Hage clinic: No rush or stress or pressure, he spent all necessary time explaining the injury 's condition and all related medical details. We were surprised to see a doctor give much detailed explanations with such passion and enthusiasm, and all necessary time again to answer our questions and concerns....the interaction was great and it was too good to be true.On our 2nd appointment: He explained further technical details about the surgery, the new approach for hip replacement wich he helped introduce to the region and insured we understood the procedure and especially what to expect post surgery so we could make an informed decision.THE SURGERY went smoothly and exactly as described and by Dr. Samer Hage: No surpises, no stress and he delivered all what was promised earlier, just to name few details: 2 hours after the surgery he made my husband walk and climb stairs. No walker was needed in my husband's case. No swelling in my husband's case. No strong pain killers. Normal motion after 4 days and post- surgery bonus miracle, NO PAIN....Not only he did a great job, but the whole surgery was a breath of fresh air to say the least.So if you want a master class in watching a doctor bring medical knowledge while building a connection and interacting with the patient, watch Dr.Samer Hage.His practice is terrific, he combines expertise and a willingness to listen and discuss. Not only an excellent surgeon but with his ability to connect, you know where you stand immediately and what next step looks like.Such a deep passion for his work, he is the right guy if you want an orthopedic surgeon and especially a true sports medicine doctor.No one should be living in pain while the latest techniques are available but the key is to find doctors like Dr. Hage who combines excellent technical skills, communication skills and the will to assist the patient psychologically and most of all high human values.The minimally invasive new approach for hip replacement and the quick recovery program are a true blessing, making the whole surgical experience way easier for the patient. BUT I believe Dr.Samer Hage has introduced more than that, a new modern dynamic open-minded approach, that highlights the patient right to understand a minimum of medical facts and to participate mentally and psychologically in the healing process.So Dr. Hage we could never thank you enough.

The Surgeries I Perform:

Shoulder Surgeries

Shoulder surgeries encompass a range of procedures designed to address various shoulder conditions, each tailored to meet individual patient needs. Rotator Cuff Repair is a common surgery for repairing torn tendons in the shoulder, essential for restoring function and alleviating pain in patients with rotator cuff injuries. Shoulder Arthroscopy, a minimally invasive technique, uses a small camera (arthroscope) to diagnose and treat a variety of shoulder problems, including tissue repair. For more severe conditions like advanced arthritis or significant joint damage, Shoulder Replacement Surgery is performed, where the damaged joint is replaced with an artificial one, greatly improving mobility and comfort. Additionally, Labral Repair and SLAP Repair focus on fixing tears in the shoulder’s labrum, a ring of cartilage that helps stabilize the joint, a procedure often necessary after dislocations or due to degenerative conditions. Each of these surgical interventions plays a critical role in managing and resolving shoulder issues, enhancing the quality of life for patients with shoulder ailments.

Hip Surgeries

When considering treatment options for hip-related issues, it’s essential to understand the most common surgical procedures offered by orthopedic specialists. Total Hip Replacement, a widely performed surgery, involves replacing a damaged hip joint with a prosthetic one, significantly reducing pain and improving mobility, particularly in cases of severe arthritis or injury. For younger, more active patients, Hip Resurfacing is an alternative that preserves more bone and is often easier to revise. It involves capping the femoral head with a metal covering, rather than replacing it entirely. Hip Arthroscopy, a minimally invasive technique, addresses various internal hip joint problems, such as labral tears and impingement, through small incisions using an arthroscope. Lastly, Hip Fracture Repair is crucial for treating hip fractures, with methods ranging from internal fixation using hardware to partial hip replacements, depending on the fracture’s nature and severity. Each of these procedures is tailored to meet individual patient needs, ensuring the best possible outcomes for those suffering from hip-related ailments.

Knee Surgeries

For those suffering from knee issues, our orthopedic services offer advanced surgical solutions tailored to individual needs. Total Knee Replacement is a transformative procedure for patients with severe arthritis or significant knee damage, where the damaged parts of the knee are replaced with high-quality artificial components, restoring function and alleviating pain. For injuries to the meniscus, a critical cushioning cartilage in the knee, we provide Meniscectomy or Meniscus Repair, depending on the nature and extent of the damage. This surgery either repairs the torn meniscus or removes the damaged part to relieve pain and improve mobility. For patients with damage confined to a specific area of the knee, Partial Knee Replacement offers a less invasive alternative to total knee replacement. This procedure preserves much of the natural knee structure, leading to a more natural knee function post-surgery. Each of these procedures employs state-of-the-art techniques to ensure the best possible outcomes, helping our patients regain their mobility and quality of life.

Arthroscopic Surgeries

Arthroscopic surgeries are minimally invasive procedures commonly used in orthopedics to diagnose and treat joint problems. An arthroscope, a small camera, is inserted into the joint through a small incision, allowing the surgeon to view the joint area on a screen and perform surgery with minimal tissue damage.

Sports Injury Surgeries

Sports injuries can range from minor ailments like sprains and strains to more severe injuries requiring surgical intervention. Also, you don’t need to be an athlete to have a sports injury.

Knee Injuries
  • The ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) and PCL (Posterior Cruciate Ligament) are the most common injured ligaments in the knee that might require surgical interventions.
  • Meniscus Tear: Often occurs in activities involving twisting, turning, or direct impact.
  • Patellar Tendinitis: Also known as jumper’s knee, common in sports involving frequent jumping.
  • Patellofemoral Syndrome: Pain in the front of the knee related to overuse, injury, or muscle weakness.
Hip Surgeries
  • Labral Tear: Tear in the ring of cartilage (labrum) surrounding the socket of the hip joint.
  • Hip Flexor Strain: Common in sports with a lot of running or jumping.
  • Hip Bursitis: Inflammation of the bursa near the hip joint, often due to repetitive activities.
  • Femoroacetabular Impingement (FAI): A condition where bones in the hip joint rub against each other.
Ankle Injuries
  • Ankle Sprain: Overstretching or tearing of the ligaments in the ankle, common in many sports.
  • Achilles Tendinitis: Inflammation of the Achilles tendon, often seen in running and jumping sports.
  • Achilles Tendon Rupture: A complete tear of the Achilles tendon.
  • Ankle Fracture: Break in one or more bones that make up the ankle joint.
Shoulder Injuries
  • Rotator Cuff Tear: Involves tears in the group of muscles and tendons that stabilize the shoulder. Common in sports requiring arm lifting or throwing motions.
  • Shoulder Impingement Syndrome: Occurs when the shoulder blade (scapula) rubs on the rotator cuff and bursa, commonly seen in swimming and tennis.
  • Shoulder Dislocation or Instability: Often occurs in contact sports like football or sports involving falls, such as skiing.
  • SLAP Tear (Superior Labrum Anterior and Posterior): A tear of the ring of cartilage (labrum) around the shoulder socket, frequently seen in throwing or lifting athletes.
  • AC Joint Injury (Acromioclavicular Joint Injury): Common in sports with potential for direct impact to the shoulder, like hockey or rugby.
  • Biceps Tendinitis: Inflammation of the tendon that attaches the biceps muscle to the shoulder, often due to repetitive overhead actions.
Wrist Injuries
  • Wrist Sprains: Often occur due to falls or sudden twists, common in sports like basketball, skateboarding, and gymnastics.
  • Scaphoid Fractures: The scaphoid is one of the small bones in the wrist and is particularly vulnerable to injury from falls onto an outstretched hand.
  • Tendonitis: Overuse can lead to inflammation of the tendons in the wrist, common in sports like golf, tennis, and rowing.
  • Ganglion Cysts: These are swellings or lumps in the wrist, often appearing after repeated wrist strain or injury.
  • TFCC (Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex) Injury: The TFCC stabilizes the wrist, especially in rotation; injuries can occur in sports that involve gripping and twisting motions.
  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Although more commonly associated with repetitive work activities, it can also develop from sports that put pressure on the median nerve in the wrist.
  • Hip Fractures: Common in the elderly, often requiring surgical repair or replacement.
  • Wrist Fractures: Such as fractures of the distal radius (Colles’ fracture), often needing surgery to realign and stabilize the bones.
  • Ankle Fractures: Involving bones like the tibia, fibula, or talus, which may require surgery for proper alignment and healing.
  • Tibial Shaft Fractures: These are often serious injuries that usually need surgical fixation.
  • Femur Fractures: Including both the femoral neck and shaft fractures, commonly treated with surgical fixation.
  • Spinal Fractures: Depending on location and severity, some spinal fractures may need surgical stabilization.
  • Clavicle (Collarbone) Fractures: In cases of severe displacement, surgery may be required to align and fix the bone.
  • Humerus Fractures: Both proximal (near the shoulder) and distal (near the elbow) humerus fractures can require surgery.
  • Pelvic Fractures: Severe pelvic fractures often need surgical intervention for stability and alignment.
  • Patellar Fractures: These may require surgery if the pieces of bone are displaced.
  • Scaphoid Fractures: In the wrist, these fractures are tricky and often need surgery to heal properly.
  • Foot Fractures: Such as calcaneus (heel bone) or metatarsal fractures, which may require surgical treatment.
  • Olecranon Fractures: Fractures of the bony tip of the elbow, which often require surgery for proper healing.
  • Acetabular Fractures: Fractures of the socket of the hip joint, which can require complex surgical repair.

The Use of Virtual Reality in Surgeries

Before proceeding with surgery, scans and MRIs will be performed according to the diagnostic protocol. Dr. Samer Hage inputs your MRI data into a Virtual Reality device and utilizes it during the procedure. This approach allows Dr. Samer to visualize your internal body structure before operating.
