Katherine W., Rexford, NY - bilateral hip replacements
I am delighted to write while on my Colorado ski vacation, 9 months after undergoing simultaneous bilateral hip replacement surgery. I had thought my surgery would have caused me to sit out this season. Instead, I am enjoying my legs, which are stronger and more reliable than they’ve been in years. The victory - made possible by HSS and Dr. Mayman - is so sweet. And the ski runs this week were more gratifying than ever.
Local physicians had told me I needed hip surgery, but that I should “live with it as long as possible."
I urge patients, if they are dedicated to do regular fitness workouts after surgery, to not wait. Get yourself back into the pursuits you love sooner rather than later and you too will feel like smiling from the top of a mountain.
