Cynthia is a very pleasant 65-year-old female patient of Dr. Stewart’s who underwent bilateral total hip arthroplasty in November of 2015.
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 arthritis 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 hip 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 hip 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.
Cynthia is very pleased with the outcome of her surgery.
Cynthia is very pleased with the outcome of her orthopedic surgery. She can now do all of the things she could not do preoperatively with hip arthritis including walking, bending over, going up and down the stairs and carrying items without any hip pain.
