Jeffrey Pullen, Burtonsville, MD – double hip replacement
I have been battling arthritis in both hips for many years. This has limited my mobility and in some cases, I had to use a cane to walk. During this time, I saw many different doctors who gave me differing opinions on what to do, from losing weight to taking medication. Some doctors even stated that I was too young (in my 40s) for such a procedure. One Sunday morning, I was watching a segment on joint replacements on CBS Sunday Morning where HSS was mentioned. After the show, I investigated the information and found out that the facility was one of the top-ranked orthopedic hospitals in the US. After validating that my insurance would cover a visit, I set up an appointment, and was referred to Dr. Nestor.
