The 1st surgeon as a child was reluctant to perform the surgery because he said it was too close the nerves & it’s dangerous, so my parents & I accepted that. The second surgeon as an adult said he wouldn’t recommend it, I was too young & I’ll wear it out by the time I’m 30, so I accepted that answer & gave up. Within the past 3 years, since 2017, my right hip became sore & I thought it was muscle pain & tried to walk it off ignoring my wife’s advice to see a doctor. Finally in 2020 I decide to see my doctor, Dr. Auora Mariani MD, who referred me to Dr. Paul Morton. Come to find out, I wore out my right hip & it wore down to bone on bone, & that was more painful than my already injured left hip.When I first seen Dr. Morton I can see how sincere & anxious to take on this challenge. I remember his words of I like challenges. He seen my CT scan & X rays & I could tell he already had a plan of attack. I finally got the left side done on 28 Nov 2020, & plan to repair the right side after Dr. Morton feels the left side is stable. Taking those walks with the physical therapist Carolina at Queen’s I was amazed how different life is now that my walking has improved. I used to drag my left left leg & turn from the hip to walk instead bending my leg up. I thank God that he has led me to Dr. Morton. I can’t wait till both hips are repaired & then I can finally spend more time playing outside with my 2 boys, helping them with their Judo exercises, & golfing with my father in law. Thanks Dr. Morton. I really can’t thank you enough!read less

I felt like he was first doctor who actually listened to me instead of brushing me off and minimizing my pain. He gave me hope and ideas on what lies down the road. He maybe a young surgeon but he definitely knows what he is doing. I also respect the fact that he had surgical training in Germany and was chosen as one of the top students in his field (I choose carefully my doctors). I like doctors who don’t sugarcoat and tell you upfront what is happening without making it sound too complicated. I would trust him to do my surgery.read less

He did my mom’s hip surgery at Kuakini in December 2018 when she had a nasty fall at home. She went into the ER there and he the did the surgery the next day. He has been taken care of her ever since. My mom is 98 years old and he provides excellent care. We highly recommend Dr. Morton!read less

I was shuffled around to 2 other orthopedics due to complications. I was a bit skeptical at first as I have very high standards for all my doctors but I read his bio and was blown away by it. Young knowledgeable and loves a challenge. Upon first meeting Dr Morton I knew I was in the right hands!! He was very informative, took the time to talk to me about a total hip replacement, thoroughly explained everything in detail beyond my expectations and dealt with all my allergies to put me right at ease. He is very calm nature, easy to talk to and a wealth of info. I went thru surgery as he is very involved with his patients one on one; which is very unusual nowadays. He is an amazing doctor and I have been so impressed with his bedside manners, caring personality and overall care and concern for my health!! I would highly recommend him. Thanks Dr Morton you are the best.Janet his office staff is very kind and considerate also.read less
