Hip And Knee Doc

Dr. LaButti thanks you for testimonials!

When you read these stories from my patients, you’ll see what drives me to be the best knee and hip surgeon. I remember each of these folks well, and I am so happy that they are out of pain and functioning again.

While my practice is in Tulsa, I have built a reputation across the country and internationally for my expertise. I’ve had patients from Bolivia, Alaska, Puerto Rico, New Mexico, Texas, Colorado, Missouri, Iowa, and Kansas travel to Tulsa for care.

Being able to make such a huge difference in my patient’s lives is the reason I do what I do. Helping them feel comfortable and confident in what I can do for them is a tremendous compliment. It lets me know that the time, attention and care I give to each person I see is appreciated.

To my patients: I sincerely thank every one of you who have placed your trust in me. I’m so glad you’re doing well, and I wish you all the very best!

I had a great experience with Dr. LaButti. He is a caring and compassionate surgeon who took the time to explain all of my options for a knee replacement. He also recommended non-surgical options that helped me avoid surgery until I was ready for it. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of orthopedic care. Also love Shanna, his nurse!

I had the pleasure of being treated by Dr. LaButti for my knee replacement surgery. He was professional, thorough, and genuinely cared about my recovery. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of joint replacement surgery. Be sure to have your surgery at Oklahoma Surgical, it’s TOP NOTCH!

Dr. LaButti is the only orthopedic surgeon in Tulsa who took the time to listen to me and not brush off my pain. While I was not happy about my diagnosis I know I am in the BEST hands for care.

I was fortunate enough to have Dr. LaButti as my surgeon for my knee replacement surgery. He is incredibly knowledgeable, caring, and made the entire process as comfortable as possible. A friend of mine referred me to him and it was worth the drive to Tulsa. Him and his office made a very scary surgery and easy and now I am walking pain free!

Dr. LaButti is an exceptional orthopedic surgeon with gifted hands. I was impressed with his bed side manner and attention to detail. His office has an in-house pharmacy which made it very convenient to pick up my prescriptions. I also enjoyed going to physical therapy, the staff was wonderful!

I had a wonderful experience with Dr. LaButti, who performed my hip replacement surgery 6 months ago. I was terrified of having the procedure but Dr. LaButti explained step by step what would happen. I truly appreciate that he took the time to answer my text messages, even on the weekend. He’s a rare gem in the medical field these days.

I hit the jackpot when I called Advanced Orthopedics for an appointment and they scheduled me to see Dr. LaButti for my knee. I have been under his care for almost a year and even though I need a knee replacement he is helping me delay surgery with non-surgical options until I’m ready. I know when I’m ready all I need to do is make the call, would highly recommend him to everyone.

I had my first visit with Dr. LaButti today and was very impressed, I had never been to an Orthopedic Surgeon before and he was very thorough in discussing the issues, possible solutions, and treatment.  I was also impressed also with Dr. LaButti’s friendly staff.  I am pleased I found Dr. LaButti office and highly recommend his practice.

A very positive experience with Dr. LaButti and his staff. He was very personable and considerate of my opinions and answered my questions to my satisfaction.

I feel so lucky that I have Dr. LaButti treating me. He takes the time to answer all my questions and always listen...never rushed. I also like the fact I always see him and not a PA. That is very unusual as most offices I have been to; I never see a real doctor.

I had knee surgery in October 2015, Dr. LaButti and he was amazing. I really had no pain because of the great job he did. I highly recommend this place. The only negative, and they may have fixed this, is the phone system was not the best but I honestly haven't called in so it may not be an issue. From a care perspective, they were all very kind, patient and friendly.
Lynn T.

I am a nurse case manager and I am very impressed with the professional skills of Dr. LaButti. He does the right thing for the patient 100% of the time. He doesn’t milk the system and does his best for the patient to get back to work with the best outcomes.

By far the very best orthopedic surgeon/hip and knee doctor in Tulsa. Our family has been treated here for years and every interaction has been a professional pleasure. What a great team Dr. LaButti has of physical therapists, nurses and reception staff. The onsite pharmacy is also AWESOME! Excellent all across the board!

I’ve had both hips replaced over the last six months and my only regret is not having it done years sooner! Smooth pre-op, surgery, and follow up. Dr. LaButti and his team are the absolute best! The nursing staff at OSH was great too.
Kathy W.
January 2021
Dr. LaButti is the nicest, most capable and professional doctor. After doing a TKR on my right knee which is now perfect I was worried he wouldn't be able to match that perfection. I was totally wrong. He did it again! I also liked the fact you see him at every visit and not a PA. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me my life back.
Eddie H.
January 2021
My experience with Dr. LaButti and his staff was a 10 out of 10! He did surgery on my knee and I have had very little pain and a very quick recovery. Dr. LaButti is an awesome doctor and his nurse Shanna is wonderful. I would highly recommend him to anyone!
Blaine H.
January 2021
Dr. LaButti is an excellent surgeon. He has replaced both of my knees and I was up walking the same day. I have family that had the same procedure from other physicians and they are still having pain and trouble walking over a year later. He and his staff are very friendly and helpful with insurance and such and I highly recommend him to all of my family and friends. BEST in TULSA as far as I’m concerned!
Vernon W.

Dr. LaButti has always been great, he deals with my hip and knee. He is very fast and straight to the point. He will always tell you want you need to do in order to get better regardless if it’s good or bad. That is the part I appreciate the most. I like the fact I see him at every single visit!
Shannon L.

Was recommended to Dr. LaButti through Work Comp. He was professional and accommodating from start to finish. This is the second surgery with Dr. LaButti and my attorney said he is the BEST in town! I am very pleased with both outcomes and have recommended him to friends.
Wanda K.
February 2021
Dr. LaButti handled my hip replacement. I have been in pain for years and within weeks I feel like a new person! Entire surgical staff was great and I was up walking same day, without walker or cane within 3.5 weeks. Six weeks later I’m already back to my normal walking routine outside 30-60 minutes daily. I cannot thank him enough for giving me a pain free life back!
Cole E.
February 2021
This will be my third surgery performed by Dr. LaButti. He is the BEST surgeon I have ever had. Left hip zero pain and back to work in two weeks! Right knee revision, driving my car two weeks later, back to work in four weeks, rehab was a breeze compared to others in rehab. Scheduled for right hip next week and expect the same results.
Ted V.

Replaced my hip and knee at 43 and 44 years of age respectively and improved my quality of living dramatically with both! His staff are phenomenal and too. Follow his exact instructions and you will have a wonderful result.

Dr. LaButti is easy to get a appointment with. Convenient office location and the facility is nice, clean, and new. His staff is friendly and helpful. I have known Dr. LaButti for many years and have worked with him professionally. He is absolutely the BEST surgeon in Tulsa for joint replacement. I have referred other family members, neighbors and friends who have also been pleased with his services. I have had surgery by him twice now and both times I seem to heal and get moving and function back sooner than other surgical experiences. I would recommend Dr. LaButti without reservation.
Duane J.
March 2021
Had my first visit with Dr. LaButti on Monday. It was a great experience because unlike some places, the office took the time to listen to me, promptly scheduled an appointment and got me in the office in a timely manner. Very professional team and seemed to care about my concerns. Had a phone call back in a timely manner with test results. I would recommend Dr. LaButti and his staff to anyone interested in the quality of the care of the doctor and his staff.
Evelyn C.
April 2021
I absolutely love Dr. LaButti. He is the ultimate professional. I’ve had two surgeries in the last two years ( knee and hip) . My recovery time was short on both surgeries. I was surprised that I saw Dr. LaButti at my follow up visits, at other offices I always saw the PA. He gave me his complete professional attention to my situation and even gave me his cell phone number. He answered all my questions and the staff was awesome, especially Shanna.
Judy O.
April 2021
Dr. LaButti did a total knee replacement for me almost 3 weeks ago, and I am so happy with the results. Less than two weeks after surgery, I was able to walk very well with a cane, without any real pain. My friends that went to another surgeon had a lot o f pain and couldn’t walk. They all wish they would have listened to me and went to Dr. LaButti. My experience was a 10 out of 10!
Ruth K.
May 2021
The recovery has been so much easier than I dreamed it would be and I wish I had seen Dr. LaButti years ago. If you are in pain don’t wait! There was no reason for my fears about recovery, I had very little pain, just some minor discomfort. Dr. LaButti is always kind and compassionate to me, and I feel confident that I am in good hands. If my other knee gets bad enough to need replacing, I won’t hesitate, except to wait until the school year is over and I can have the surgery without needing a substitute in my classroom.

Best decision to replace my hip! I should have done it sooner.
Debbie H.
July 2021
I had a partial knee replacement done August 2,2021. This replacement was by far the best one so far! The surgery was done at Oklahoma Surgical and it's very nice and clean, all the people there were very friendly. Dr. LaButti has really perfected this surgery procedure and his office personnel are top notch. The physical therapy done in the office is convenient and the therapists are wonderful. My care made this experience a five star event!!!

I cannot say enough positive comments about Dr. LaButti and his staff. This is my third surgery (both hips and total knee replacement) with them and everyone has come out perfect. Everyone there is courteous, professional, and thorough. Dr. LaButti is not only one of the best surgeons in Tulsa, he’s one of the best in the country!
Molly C.
August 2021
I saw Dr. LaButti because of horrible pain in my left knee, but hoping knee replacement surgery would not be necessary! We tried an injection but it didn’t help. Dr. LaButti was patient and explained why surgery was necessary at my next visit. He and his staff made me feel at ease throughout the procedure and the process of healing! I highly recommend Dr. LaButti and his staff!

Dr. LaButti, THANK YOU!!! I can Zumba, walk for miles and conduct my business without pain. You were true to your word and I will be eternally thankful I found you!!!!! I also appreciated having your cell number to text you on the weekend. Your compassion and kindness is appreciated.

I have great thanks for where I am today. A year ago I couldn't hardly get up off my chair. Another clinic kept me from receiving my knee replacement by holding my weight for the reason. I had done all the conditioning asked. Lost over 30lbs but refused surgery until I lose more weight. I have no medical problems, no routine medications, none. Dr. LaButti took all factors into consideration and came to the decision to preform total knee replacement. August 29th left knee replaced fifteen weeks later right knee. I know without Dr. LaButti I would still by struggling to be active enough to live a life without pain. I can't say THANK YOU enough...!

Just telling the truth on what a great doctor he is. You can contact him anytime, I don’t know of any other doctors who do that.

Had my right hip replaced last April out within 24 hours walking, This January 01/17/2019 I had my left knee replaced for the second time in and out less than 24 hours up walking no problems, Dr. LaButti and his staff are the best. Just had my right knee replaced 10/18/19 not even a week has gone by and I'm walking without a cane! What a difference with robotic surgery thank you again Dr. LaButtti and staff.
January 2019
Excellent surgeon, knee replacement feels great, 2 years later and all is well. Make sense why all the doctors I know in town trust him with their family.

I would like to thank Dr. LaButti and his staff. I had my first total hip replacement on August 20, 2015, spent a few days in the hospital. The staff there was understanding to my needs. The food was excellent. My recovery went well and doing excellent. As time and years go by I had my second total hip replacement done in September 2018. A very big thank you to Dr. LaButti and his staff. The surgery went well. Went home the next day. I look forward to getting better every day. Thank you very much Dr. LaButti.
A. Wilson
May 2019
I just wanted to share ANOTHER excellent experience with doc. Look... I had my left knee replacement done 5 years ago and have excellent flexibility but I unfortunately have severe fibromyalgia and it complicates things for me. I have never met a doctor like Dr. LaButti. I remember my first meeting I was so unsure because he was SO SURE. If that even makes sense. I was constantly falling. I still have problems.. but not from my new knee...but if not for doc and my surgery I know I'd still be falling. I was 47 when I had to have it replaced and I had to make the tough decision after falling in a empty parking garage at work and my phone going under my truck and pretty much being "stranded ". I went in to see him last week and I can say this... I COMPLETELY trust what he tells me and the advice he gives me. Even when it isn't what I want to hear. (My own fears and phobias) he explains things to me so I understand them, and it means everything... especially when a person is hurting and or frustrated it is ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING! I have put off my other knee replacement because I just want to keep it as long as I can cause I'm still so young and it's my "get out of the tub knee". But... this is the year. If you are a new patient or considering Dr. LaButti he is honestly there for you for the long haul... even 5 years later. He is sooooo busy... we all know he is... but he NEVER EVER makes you feel like he has anything else to do once he comes in that little office and sits on his stool. Thank you Doc... I truly... appreciated your kindness and patience last week. You definitely made me feel more confident about our game plan!!

Doctor Ronald LaButti gave me my freedom back! I have suffered from knee pain beginning in April of 1995. I have had a total of eight knee surgeries from April 4, 1995, through September. In May, Dr. LaButti replaced my left knee. I could not believe how it erased the annoying pain I had come accustomed to living with all these years. I was using a rollator walker to get around, and I was only 54 years old. I had tried everything to get relief, including surgery, injections, therapy, ice, braces, and drugs. Finally, in May, I was able to walk just a few hours after my total knee replacement without the debilitating pain. After recovery and therapy, I elected to have my right knee replaced in September. Best gift I ever gave myself!

August 2019
I had put off, seeing a doctor, for severe right knee pain, for over ten years. The idea of having a knee replaced, was just out of the question, due to downtime, anxiety, and only understandable fear. Finally, after non-stop pain and barely being able to walk, my wife set up an appointment, with Dr. LaButti. His calm, reassuring nature and explanation, of the procedure, removed a lot of my anxiety. I wish I had done this many years ago. No time, was my post-surgical pain, even close, to the pain I had been experiencing, for so many years. I was able to walk on my new knee, within hours of the surgery. I was walking a mile a day within ten days. I have a fully active life again! Thank you, Dr. LaButti, and to your excellent staff!

S. Wilson
September 2019
Dr. LaButti confirmed what I already had guessed that I had mild to moderate arthritis in both of my knees. I had irritated my right knee, driving to Iowa and back. He suggested that a couple of Kenalog shots would help quiet down the right knee and support the left one that had started hurting me as I was doing everything I could on that leg. 15 mins later it was amazing that I could get in and out of my Corvette without hurting like hell! Thank You, Doc!

I am currently out eight weeks from total knee replacement on the left knee. My knee is so straight! I have regained my height and have minimal pain. I started walking with a cane at week three and stopped using it for week five. I am thrilled with the results! Everyone is wanting to know who did my knee surgery after seeing the progress I have made. I am looking forward to getting my right knee done in September. Thank you to Dr. LaButti and staff!

Dr. LaButti did a hip replacement for me and I have not suffered any pain in the hip after the recovery. He is a wonderful doctor and person.
H. Hopkins
October 2019
Dr. LaButti was conservative in his treatment plan, which was terrific. I had been referred to him, having been told that I needed a hip replacement. After reviewing my films, he indicated that I was not appropriate for a replacement since my hip capsule itself was not very deteriorated. And that I had three ligament tears.. two in the gluteus minimus and one in the labrum area. He set me up with an EXCELLENT physical therapist, administered a shot and following me every few months. I went through three series of p.t. and continue to do my exercises for maintenance. I would highly recommend Dr. LaButti and his staff for expertise, diligence, and timely responses to questions and concerns.
Meryl K.

Dr. LaButti and his staff are incredibly caring and professional. Dr. LaButti is so efficient and explains all the results and answers all questions. He is so detailed and a wealth of information.

Total hip replacement for me 2 year ago! It took me from walking like a pirate to being able to walk normal again. Thanks Dr. LaButti!

I had my total hip replacement in 2009 and a total knee replacement in 2010. I want to thank Dr. LaButti for doing such a great job on my hip and knee. I haven’t had any problems with either surgery and I’m so happy that I chose you as my doctor.

Dr. LaButti is the best! He is the only doctor I will ever let touch my knees. Knowledge, honest, and upfront, this man is everything you could want in a doctor. He is amazing and second to none!

Dr. LaButti did a total knee replacement on my knee 5 years ago and it’s like magic. No pain after way too many years of putting up with it. Time to get the right one down now. I’m seeing him tomorrow, he’s great!

Yes indeed, my knee replacement went fine. Dr. LaButti cares for his patients.

A doctor that listens and isn’t quick to write a script for everything under the sun. This is why I go to you for my knee issues. You listen and try to find the least invasive way possible.

So happy to have this site available for questions and answers. Great idea. I had my left knee replaced in June of this year and my right knee in October of this year as well. It has been quite a year getting through the recovery of both surgeries, but I am totally convinced that Dr. Ronald LaButti was the right orthopedic surgeon for the job. I have been 100% satisfied with all aspects of care from him and his staff. I was also very impressed with Oklahoma Surgical Hospital for both procedures. It was the best hospital experiences I have ever had. I am looking forward to 2016 and pain-free knees. Thank you Dr. Ronald LaButti.

You are very good at what you do and your reputation could not be more accurate. I keep forgetting I have had a total knee replacement. No one believes me either. After two weeks I was walking better than I have ever walked in my life. Just two weeks! The physical therapist could not believe it. You’re the best and you’re doing my left knee in August. I am in the best hands ever.

My mother and brother both had hips replaced. A doctor in Tulsa performed my mother’s surgery, and my brother had one hip replaced in Dallas and one by a prominent doctor in Chicago. He tried to convince me to go to the Chicago doctor, but I’m so glad I didn’t. Mine actually turned out better than both of theirs! It was pure luck that I was referred to Dr. LaButti, and he is absolutely wonderful. After surgery, it was like boom! I had a totally new lease on life, the pain and discomfort were completely gone. I was amazed at how attentive and focused on my comfort he was. Before the surgery, he walked me through the procedure, showed me the prosthesis, explained what to expect in terms of scarring and pain, he went through every little detail, so I never felt anxious or worried. After the operation he came in and spoke with the nurse to make sure I was comfortable, even checking that the pillows were propped up behind me! A few miles here and there didn’t deter me at all! I would follow Dr. LaButti to the ends of the earth if necessary. To say he knows what he’s doing is a tremendous understatement. There’s no health care to speak of in Barrow except for the taking care of the common cold. The good thing is my insurance company provides two trips a year to another state to visit a doctor or tend to whatever health issue you may have. I enlisted the help of my cousin in Oklahoma and it didn’t take us long to find Dr. LaButti. He got nothing but rave reviews from everyone we talked to including nurses, past patients, and other doctors. According to Dr. LaButti, the only activities I should avoid are skydiving, skiing and other similar activities that may cause serious damage to my knee. That’s a far sight better for a person who once had trouble walking across a room. Even though choosing him was pretty much a no brainer, it turned out to be one of the smallest things I’ve ever done!

Dr. LaButti was the first doctor to offer me hope. He was positive and reassuring but very open and upfront at the same time. I couldn’t have asked for a better doctor. Being able to do things with my son has brought us even closer. I thank Dr. LaButti for that and for so much more. Not only has he given me a leg to stand on, he has given me my life back

I had been experiencing pain and tightness in my hip which was getting progressively worse. One of the doctors I saw took an MRI of my hip, and immediately scheduled an appointment for me with an orthopedic surgeon Dr. LaButti. Dr. LaButti’s X-rays showed that I had developed avascular necrosis. The bones were deteriorating and rubbing against each other, causing me severe pain. He recommended total hip replacement surgery. By then the pain had become so intense, I took the first opening he had for surgery. I could really feel my hip deteriorating. Before the operation, my life revolved around trying to feel better. When I got home from work, I would take a hot bath to try and ease the pain. It hurt to get off the couch and walk to the kitchen, and I was limping all the time. After Dr. LaButti performed the surgery my turnaround was phenomenal. I woke up, and the pain was gone. I was so amazed. Right from the beginning, the pain had completely disappeared. I was even walking a little the very next day. Five weeks after the surgery, I could easily walk without a problem. I think that if you do what Dr. LaButti instructs you to do, you’ll be successful. He is personable, reassuring and will discuss your situation with you where you’re at and what your options are. He is very thorough and knowledgeable. Even though it is a major operation, no one should be afraid of having a hip replacement. It’s one of the least painful surgeries I’ve ever had and is 100% worth it. I feel like my life is being given back to me.

I have never had arthritis, but about six or seven years ago I was in Branson trying to keep up with a group of young people, and I ended up having a bad fall. Eventually I found out that a fall can cause a joint to completely fall apart. A friend of mine who lives in our retirement community had undergone hip surgery, and encouraged me to visit her orthopedic surgeon, Dr. LaButti. I didn’t think I needed a hip replacement yet, but I decided to check it out. When he told me that no cartilage was left in my hip joint, I was surprised, but I still didn’t feel like I was prepared for surgery. Dr. LaButti knew I wasn’t ready yet, so he started me on a shot treatment. The shot only helped for a couple weeks, and then I knew it was time to have the operation. I really respected that he didn’t rush me into anything I wasn’t comfortable doing. I am absolutely thrilled with the outcome. I have no limp when I walk, and I am totally pain-free. I almost forget which hip I had replaced.

The first thing that impressed me about Dr. LaButti was what other medical personnel had to say about him. Everyone I encountered, from the person who scheduled my appointment to the person who escorted me to my room, said the same great things about him. I had to get a cardiac clearance before the operation, and the doctor and entire staff there told me how thorough and detailed-oriented he is, never cutting corners or skipping a step. Now my left knee is jealous, I’m so thrilled I went through with it. Even though it’s something everyone says, it really is true! I should have done this a long, long time ago. I give Dr. LaButti a score of ten out of ten. He does everything he can to get remarkable results and to make sure you experience as little pain as possible.
P. Conwell
THE BEST......without a doubt. He did knee replacements on my husband in 2008 and 2010. NO problems since! He is like a new person! Dr. LaButti is the BEST without a doubt! I 100% recommend him!!!!!
M. Evans
Dr LaButt is the VERY best! Very attentive and explains things in a way that you can truly understand no matter your background. He makes himself accessible to his patients and follows up with them promptly. One of the best doctors I’ve seen.
T. Kearney
Before my surgery, I read the information booklet about Dr. LaButti, and it was obvious he is very experienced and family-oriented. It made me feel more comfortable going into it. I’ve written him several thank you letters. Dr. LaButti took me from having a lot of pain and not being able to walk to pain at all. Now I am dancing.

Before the surgery, everything I did was based on how far the parking was and if a lot of walking was required. I was so depressed. I’m a boater, and it’s tough to walk on a boat with a bad knee. I can’t put into words how happy I am not to have pain. Dr. LaButti is like Santa Claus to me. He gave me back my life. Everyone is right when they say, Don’t wait. It takes a lot of guts to have a knee replacement, but it’s more than worth it. If someone is looking to change their life, Dr. LaButti is the one to go to. He is confident, experienced and straight forward. I have nothing but gratitude for him.

My doctor really bragged about doctor LaButti saying he was an excellent surgeon, the one you want to go to when you need hip or knee surgery. I liked Dr. LaButti from the start. He is very meticulous, and he expects his staff and patients to be the same way. I think that is why he is so successful. He expects everyone to do their part in realizing the absolute best possible outcome. I did exactly what he told me to do, and I have achieved wonderful results. After the surgery I had very little pain and healed much faster than expected. I was in physical therapy for two and a half weeks instead of the usual six. I was walking very soon afterward. In fact they had to tell me to slow down! Dr. LaButti has an amazing team. I had a really wonderful therapist, and everyone in the office was friendly. It was just a really great group of people to work with. There’s a good reason everyone has such good words about him. He is not only a good doctor, but also a good person. After the success of the surgery, he was happy for me as I was myself!

Dr. LaButti is truly a professional. He doesn’t use a lot of flowery language, he explains to you exactly what you need to do, before and after, to have a successful operation.
B. Stone

I was immediately impressed with Dr. LaButti because he gave me the real facts. He explained everything that was going to happen, and that’s exactly what I needed, someone who would be upfront with me and not sugarcoat anything. I had the operation two years ago, and today I feel absolutely no pain. I started feeling the positive effects as soon as four weeks after the operation. As a member of the German American Society, Oktoberfest is a big event for me, and it was taking place six weeks after my surgery. I set the goal for myself to participate in the event, and I accomplished that goal. I was very scared to have this procedure. I’m just so thankful I found Dr. LaButti and finally did it. Now I am pain-free and can truly enjoy life.

I put up with hip pain and discomfort for so long, for no good reason at all. I attributed it to aging, and assumed I had to live with it. The turning point came when I went on an out-of-town shopping trip with a friend. We had walked three blocks, and my friend had to go back and get the car to pick me up. I simply couldn’t walk the three blocks back. Dr. LaButti’s X-rays showed that I had developed avascular necrosis. The bones were deteriorating and rubbing against each other, causing me severe pain. He recommended total hip replacement surgery. By then the pain had become so intense, I took the first opening he had for surgery. I could really feel my hip deteriorating. My friend had gotten a total hip replacement, and she encouraged me to go to her surgeon, Dr. LaButti. The rest is history! He performed my hip replacement in August, 2009, and now I’m completely pain free. I’m so grateful to Dr. LaButti and was very pleased with my experience with him and his entire staff. His thoroughness and demeanor really made me feel confident that I was in the best hands.

I am very particular about my doctors, so the first thing I did was look at Dr. LaButti’s website. The main thing that attracted me to him was that he did a fellowship with the surgeon who helped develop the Stryker Surgical Navigation System. I wasn’t looking for someone who would pat me on the back and tell me everything was going to be fine, I wanted a skilled surgeon and that’s what Dr. LaButti is. For the two years following my initial visit with Dr. LaButti, I received knee injections to ease the pain. Then my knee began hurting again and Dr. LaButti told me I would need a knee replacement and to let him know when Ii was ready to do it. I kept putting it off. Surgery is always a scary situation. But arthritis is very insidious, it just takes bites out of your life. When I realized I could no longer do all the things I love doing, I called and made the appointment. It has been a tremendous success. I have not had any problems with my new knee. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat. Dr. LaButti is an excellent surgeon. You can ask him anything, and you can tell by talking to him that he cares about his patients. He also has a fabulous, caring staff. At my six month post-op checkup, Dr. LaButti congratulated me and reached out to shake my hand, but I told him I no, I want to hug you for giving me my life back
Dr. LaButti and his staff are wonderful. If want an honest, straight forward opinion he's the doc for you. I've had both my knees replaced and I followed his instructions and had an easy recovery. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing a knee replacement.

Wow I had both my hips done by Doctor Labutti back to back let me tell you he's absolutely the best I had the best care I had the best of everything . Thank you so much doctor laButti you're absolutely the best. That was 2 years ago now, and I'm doing great.
C. Repass
Dr Labutti did a complete knee replacement on my Dr knee in Nov 2009. It's the best thing I ever did! No pain and working great! Thank you!
T. Lamson
Best experience I've had at a doctor's office in a very long time. The staff was exceptional and very friendly. Didn't feel rushed and my time with Dr. LaButti was the best! I contacted him through his website and he replied within the next days about questions I forgot to ask.
I liked Dr. LaButti right away. He spent a lot of time with me and gave me a lot of information. He drew pictures and thoroughly explained the whole process. He also took every precaution, making sure I was really physically ready for the surgery. If you have faith in your doctor, you don’t dread surgery nearly as much. I’m so thankful to be able to do things I love, like golf. Choosing a doctor is sometimes a gamble. I’ve had two great successes with Dr. LaButti, and I tell others about him all the time.

I tell them it’s definitely worth it if you have a good doctor. The doctor makes all the difference in the world, and I highly recommend Dr. LaButti.

I wouldn’t be exaggerating to say Dr. LaButti changed my world. From our first meeting, I immediately liked Dr. LaButti’s straight forward, honest approach. He never pulled any punches and always took the time as much time as necessary to ensure I knew exactly what to expect. I can’t tell you how much I appreciated that. For years, intense pain was part of my daily life. Today, both of my feet are level and straight, and I feel great! I’m very grateful to Dr. LaButti. If there’s a way to improve a patient’s quality of life, he will find it. I’ll never forget Dr. LaButti; he is the one who put me back on top of the world again.

There’s no doubt, I am Dr. LaButti’s biggest fan. When you find out you are going to need a hip replacement, it is scary and you have all the concerns. From our first meeting, Dr. LaButti was straightforward and at the same time, very calming. I really appreciated how he accentuated the positive of the situation. I had all the confidence in the world in his abilities. After two weeks, I was totally off all medication and was completely pain-free. No one can believe I had a hip replacement. Nothing in my world has changed except my personality. I guess living with daily pain can take its toll on your outlook on life. My family and friends are glad to see the "old me" back again, but not nearly as glad as I am.

I broke my leg in my 20s, and by the time I was in my 40s, I started feeling some slight knee pain. Over time, the pain got worse and worse. A few years ago, my primary care physician referred me to an orthopedic surgeon, and I said I would look into it, but I never did. I thought I was too young for a knee replacement, and I didn’t want to have major surgery. I just kept putting it off. The pain continued to get worse and my wife finally persuaded me to visit an orthopedic surgeon. I went to see Dr. Ronald LaButti and he told me exactly what I did not want to hear that I needed a new knee. I was hesitant about having a knee replacement, but when Dr. LaButti asked me about my quality of life, I had to face the facts: It wasn’t good. I was in pain all the time. I limped. I couldn’t last through even ten minutes of walking. I thought about my little grandson and how he’d started walking with a fake limp to imitate me. I decided to have Dr. LaButti do the surgery. I’ve always liked that Dr. LaButti was straight to the point. He told me, “Do what I tell you, and you’ll be fine”. Now I’m 100% pain free and I have no limp at all. My wife and I took a trip to Fort Gibson Lake recently and I asked her if she wanted to take a walk. She said, I’ve been waiting years for you to say that. This has truly been life-changing. I believe I had the best doctor in the state to do my knee replacement. I really trusted Dr. LaButti, and he didn’t let me down.

Having a hip replacement isn’t one of the best things I have ever done, it is the best thing I have ever done in my life. It wasn’t until after Dr. LaButti operated on my left hip that I knew what a “pain-free” existence really meant. I couldn’t believe what I had been enduring for all those years. People were starting to ask me why I limped. I guess it had been so gradual I hadn’t even noticed. All I knew was the discomfort was starting to affect my everyday life. With any sort of activity at all, like running errands, shopping or gardening, I would tire very easily and have to lie down with an icy hot pack. Dr. LaButti had said I’d know when it was time for surgery and boy was he right! My condition had progressively gotten worse. What comes to mind as the ‘turning point’ was a business trip I took that year to Boston. I took a walking tour that was intended to be a fun thing, but resulted in a completely miserable afternoon and totally sleepless night. I was downing aspirin in hopes of relief. Absolutely nothing helped. It was definitely time to see Dr. LaButti, a.k.a “The Hip and Knee Doc!” An appointment the following week confirmed I had “bone-on-bone”. Wasting no time whatsoever, Dr. LaButti performed total hip replacement surgery on my left hip at the end of the week. That was the beginning of the end of my painful condition. Following my hospital stay, Dr. LaButti and his staff made arrangements for my in-home physical therapy. Dr. LaButti had done his job, now it was time for me to do mine. I made sure I did all the physical therapy exercises I was supposed to do. I think it is key for anyone considering this type of surgery to follow doctor’s orders and post-op instructions to a “T”. To this day, I am still amazed there is zero pain and that I have complete range-of-motion in my hip area and the limp is long gone. It’s been wonderful having a hip that feels and functions like it was intended to! I’m just delighted!

Highly recommend Dr. LButti. Most compassionate and caring doctor I have ever met. Excellent staff and returning calls pretty quick. My case is complex and his bedside manner has made all the difference. The nurses at OSH said he was one the best surgeons on staff.
