How do you spell excellence? I spell it OJRI. When it comes to joint replacement, patient care and bed side manner, Dr. Paul Jacob is leading the way. Excellence starts at the top. It is clear that Dr. Jacob runs his practice from a patient perspective. He and his team aren't just nice, caring and compassionate, they are leaders in their field, true professionals who use state-of-the-art art technology to bring about excellent outcomes. As someone who has faced many skeletal and joint challenges, surgeries and treatments, I can speak firsthand about the difference Dr. Jacob and his team make in the lives of their patience. It is more than a profession for Dr. Jacobs, it is a calling. I am very grateful for the gifts and talents he has put into practice. I have regained a quality of life of thou

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Paul Jacob, his PA, Randall Pape, and Community Hospital North. Dr. Jacob did a full hip replacement for me in November 2018 and while I knew it was an easier recovery than knee replacement, I was unprepared for how easy and almost pain-free it was. I then had Dr. Jacob perform a total knee replacement in November 2019 and was again in disbelief at how fast my recovery was. I will not tell you there was no pain but it was minimal compared to my previous knee replacement and to what others were expressing after knee replacements with other doctors. I was off of my pain meds after one week and walking with no assistance after two weeks. Amazing!! I would encourage anyone who is contemplating a hip or knee replacement to use Dr. Jacob. You might have to wait to get in to see him but it will be well worth your time.

I had endured knee pain for years, had two previous arthroscopic surgery with different surgeons, and had run out of options other than total knee replacement. Dr Jacob had performed a partial knee replacement on my other knee a few years back and I was very happy with the outcome. However, I was not looking forward to a total knee replacement and kept putting it off. I wish I didn’t . A big thank you to Dr Jacob and his surgical team. Had the surgery end of March and by Jun was vacationing, walking up and down hillsides, pain free. Thank you again

Dr. Jacob and his team have been an answer to prayer. Had total hip replacement on May 9 and July 10 (both hips). The difference it has made to my life is amazing. Dr. Jacob is a genius with a heart and a God-given talent for what he does. The surgery and healing were far easier than I imagined. Certainly easier than living in pain. Randy, Kristy, the pre and post-surgery and surgery teams, the hospital nurses, I just can’t say enough nice things about them all. Home PT with Progressive Health made my recovery swift and sure. I am 6 weeks post-op on my last hip and I am back at the gym walking laps and back to my usual daily routine with the exception of prescribed hip precautions for another 6 weeks. That’s a long way for a woman who couldn’t even walk up the block without extreme pain a few months ago. I can’t thank Dr. Jacob enough for giving me back my life.

I can not say enough good things about this Doctor and his staff. From start to finish I have had a great experience. Absolutely top notch.

March 9, 2019

Two knee replacements, February 2018 and November 2018. Absolutely thrilled with the process and the results. My mobility is unrestricted in every way and there is no more pain. Not only is Dr. Jacob a genius, he has surrounded himself with an incredible team, in the office and in the hospital. His pain management program was very beneficial to me because it allowed my rehab to progress effectively and better than expected. I am 67 years old and these replacements have allowed me to maintain a very active lifestyle - golf, hiking, swimming, bicycling and daily walks! I will be an ambassador for Dr. Jacob for as long as he continues to improve the quality of people’s lives.

Hip replacement went amazingly smooth. A year after the procedure I am doing everything I was doing before; gardening, hiking and in general just living without that awful debilitating hip pain! Dr Jacobs is excellent.

Jan 19, 2019

I had run out of time and options and desperately needed to have my hip replaced but at the age of 42, there is a lot at stake. Dr. Jacob and his team are phenomenal. My recovery has been very smooth and quicker than I had even dared to hope for. I was back to work, attending my kid’s band concerts and basketball games 2-3 weeks after my surgery. I’m so thankful to be able to return to my busy life pain free!! Thank you so much for an extremely successful surgery and outcome!

WOW Dr. Jacob is a rock star in the OR and out!! He is truly gifted in what he does! The staff as well have been wonderful and caring. I never felt rushed or confused about what was going to happen. My pain has been kept under control. The hospital was amazing to let my husband stay all night with me and he even ate the same meals I ate. Everyone is so wonderful. I would recommend Dr. Jacob to anyone and if I need something fixed or tweaked in the future, his office will always be on speed dial.

This guy is on another level. No other orthopedic surgeon in the state can hold a candle to Dr. Jacob. We were so lucky to find out about him.

Best of the best! Dr. Jacob did both total hip replacements on me and he did a spectacular job on both hips. I couldn’t walk at all and now I’m strong and able to have a normal life. I trust Dr. Jacob with my life.

August 25 2017

WOW! Dr. Jacob has changed my life, literally. I've always been an active person, work hard, play hard. I discovered when I retired a year ago that my knees were really bad. My activity level was 0. Now, 3 weeks post op from my second knee replacement, I am amazed at how great I feel. All without pain. I will forever be grateful to Dr. Jacob and Kristy, his PA-C.

This was my best doctor/patient relationship ever! Dr. Jacob is so great at explaining every little detail so nothing was a surprise to me. He really listened to my concerns from a surgery I had with another doc and addressed them all. He was quick to respond via email. He showed great kindness in the hospital before and after surgery. The surgery was great and recovery has been super. I would recommend him and his staff over and over.

Dr. Jacob and his staff are excellent people. They are very knowledge about their work and explain everything thoroughly so that the patient understands. Very courteous and accommodating. After doing my knee replacement, I have felt better than I have in over 20 years. I did everything Dr. Jacob asked, and I have had a speedy recovery. I highly recommend Dr. Jacob for knee replacements!

April, 2017

Under Dr. Jacob's excellent care, all I can say is that you are never too old to have a total hip replacement! My mother's was done in 2016 at the age of 89 and she has no regrets. Following physical therapy religiously, the entire process from operation to walking without a walker or cane was only 7 weeks. With a previous hip replacement on her other hip 10 years ago, she was left with a leg-length difference of 1/4 inch. In surgery, Dr. Jacob was able to even out her legs. It is truly a gift not to rely on lifts and inserts for her shoes anymore. Without a doubt, Dr. Jacob is outstanding and, thanks to him, she has quality of life and can walk without pain! One final note, please, Dr. Jacob, take that horrible photograph down from your website! You are much better looking in real life!

Dr. Jacobs explained my knee issues. Answered my concerns. But most of all, he was up front on the expectations, and prepared me as to what to expect. I have now had both knees done. His physical therapist, Jennifer, is an extension of his top quality of care.

Dr. Jacob is the best, very caring! He did my knee replacement 11 weeks ago, not a lot of pain . I was off pain meds in 6 days, walking with a cane after 1 week. I am doing very well because Dr. Jacob is so good at what he does. If you need a knee or hip replacement, please make an appointment with Dr. Jacob.

I highly recommend this doctor for anything relating to knee issues with the utmost confidence. I suffered with chronic knee issues resulting in several anthroplastys with a recent one eleven months ago which rendered me almost cripple with my left knee. I was referred to Dr. Jacob and from the very start I knew that I was in the right place. He ruled out infections, something the last Dr. didn't do, then a revision surgery was done . I'm now six weeks post op and walking with barely a limp.

I never imagined that at 49 years of age that I would be faced with debilitating osteoporosis of my hip. Dr. Jacob's confidence in the ability to restore my quality of life enabled me to move forward with my total hip replacement. I was back to work in 6 weeks, enjoying walks and no longer sitting on the sidelines! Best decision of my life! Thank you Dr. Jacob!

Dr. Jacob and his staff were awesome! He spoke in laymen's terms and spent as much time visiting with me regarding my diagnosis, the procedure and the final outcome as I needed to feel comfortable. He listened to my concerns regarding how anesthesia has made me sick in the past and did everything in his power to minimize those problems. He was actually the first doctor who took this serious. He was also always accessible to me even over the holiday season. Many days during my recovery he took time to call me directly and check on my progress. I could not have asked for better surgeon. His staff was outstanding and a pleasure to talk to as well. His office always made me feel like they genuinely cared about me and never like just another patient. The double knee replacement has changed my quality of life for both me and my family. It is so great to play with my children again! Thank you for improving my life Dr. Jacob.

I was in extreme pain for years, but Dr. Jacob explained my options in a fashion that made me feel informed. There were no stupid questions from me and he provided resources for me to read about my procedure in advance & through the rehab process. I have made substantial gains and after only 2weeks had no regrets & only wished I would have met him sooner. This was a great experience & I am greatful GOD blessed me with a physician in Dr. Jacob.

I had a total knee replacement and I have had a great experience with Dr. Jacob. He took time to talk with me at each appointment and he made sure I knew what to expect following my surgery. I have worked hard in therapy, but I feel certain that Dr. Jacob's skill in surgery has given me the greatest opportunity for a fully functioning knee. My total knee replacement was only 3 months ago and I am already mowing the lawn and walking up and down stairs without having to take them one step at a time. I feel certain that with continued exercise, my knee will continue to improve. I am looking forward to doing sports and activities I haven't been able to do for years. Thank you, Dr. Jacob. I am only 54 and I wasn't ready to give up so many of the things I love. Now, I don't have to.

Dr. Jacob is the greatest Surgeon and I am so thankful I found him for total hip replacement surgery. He diagosnsed me immediately, and scheduled me for surgery right away. I went from frightened and horrified to relaxed and confident thanks to Dr. Jacob.

I had total knee replacement with Dr. Jacob in December, 2015. He and his PA were awesome in explaining everything, noting particular concerns and all follow-ups. He was with me everyday in the hospital and impressed my daughter also who stayed with me. It was and remains clear to me that he cares about me as a person and not me solely as source of income. I always appreciate finding that in a physician because many do not have those attributes. I always felt I was in superior hands.

I recently had my second hip replacement. Dr. Paul Jacob performed my most recent surgery. Dr. Jacob, PA Randy, and all staff are attentive, caring, friendly and most of all very skilled in their care. They stay on top of what is going on in the orthopedic community and use the most effective procedures, prosthetics, etc. My down time has been less with this surgery than my first. I have a total knee replacement in my near future and I undoubtedly will be back to Dr. Jacob.
