"Dr. Hughes did an AWESOME job on my surgery and corrected what needed to be done from the first surgery I had. I've been pain free now for about a year and a half. I'm glad he was able to fix the problems and also fix the scar from my last surgery. Go Dr. Hughes!! I would definitely go back to see him if I had any other orthopedic problems and I highly recommend people to see him as well."
