Before having hip replacement surgery, Robert had received a lot of advice from friends about what to expect, but what he got couldn't have been more different. Robert met with Health First Physicians Group Orthopedic Specialist, Kenneth Sands, MD, because of a constant and debilitating pain in his hip. "We bonded right away," says Robert of Dr. Sands. "Everything was exactly how I had hoped it would be. I was up and walking right after surgery and home three days later."
"I went on a cruise the month after my surgery. I started out using a walker, moved to a cane, and by the fourth day I was walking on my own. My friends were amazed, saying they'd never seen anyone recover so fast. I just smiled and said, 'I had a darn good doctor.'"
"I tell all my friends that they need to go see Dr. Sands - he has newer treatments that are better and help you heal sooner."
Hip pain may be the result of a sudden injury such as a fall but could also be due to a degeneration of healthy tissue at the hip area.Explore More
