Davis Roya, Neponsit, NY — hip resurfacing
I am a 69 year-old fitness and health food fanatic, as well as an instructor of Taekwondo and yoga. I am also nature hiker and cross-country skier. Although remaining at peak fitness, my right hip was so bad, I couldn't make it around the block. I have always been against all medication and doctors in general, but I was not ready to be put out to pasture. I searched for the best hospital and the best surgeon, and I got both in Dr. Su and HSS. Five weeks ago I got a right hip resurfacing procedure done and I now feel blessed. I have my life back. I have zero pain, my strength and flexibility are back, and every day I feel better. I feel fantastic. I had no problems from the operation at all. The incision was painful and the medication made me sick, but I was off the pain medication in 2 days. However, even the aspirin made me sick (it never had before). My advice to anyone getting hip surgery is to get in peak condition before the operation and start rehab immediately after surgery.
