ABOUT CYNTHIA

Cynthia had severe osteoarthritis in both of her hips, which was significantly impacting the quality of her life.

Prior to surgery, she had difficulty walking, bending over, going up and down the stairs, and carrying items due to pain in her hips. She made the decision to pursue bilateral total hip arthroplasty to relieve her discomfort and to improve her quality of life.


HOW DR. STEWART HELPED

She had a very good experience having her surgery performed at Sacred Heart Hospital.

Cynthia was very diligent about participating in physical therapy and performing her exercises on her own at home. She states she was able to return to activities of daily living approximately 2-3 weeks after her surgery and she had returned to working full time within 6 weeks of her surgery. She felt that she was fully recovered by 4 months postoperatively.
