It has been seven weeks today since I had my double hip replacement and I can honestly say that I feel like a new man. It is hard to get used to the fact that I am not going to hurt when I do certain things. I have astounded my friends.
Dear Dr. Steven Naide,
I wanted to thank you for changing my life at age 42. I was very nervous to be so young and in need of a hip replacement but thanks to you, the anterior hip has made my life what it was 20 years ago!
Thank you for performing first class surgery on replacing my right hip on December 18, 2007. The recovery was faster and easier than my left hip (which I wish could have been done by you). Yesterday, I walked up several flights of stairs and was amazed at the normal feel in the joint – it feels like new.
Thank you so much for letting me participate in your evening of explaining the anterior hip replacement procedure. I’m just so happy with the surgery and lack of any problems and with the extremely quick recovery. I will continue to promote your procedure to anyone I hear about or see limping. It’s absolutely fabulous!
I find it necessary to send you a written letter of appreciation so you can truly understand how happy I am with the outcome of my hip replacement procedure and my recovery.
After having had one hip replaced over 8 years ago, I was expecting the same outcome, that being a difficult surgery, a painful post-operative stay in the hospital and a long drawn-out rehabilitation and recovery. What a surprise; what an absolute miracle! I was on my feet within 36 hours and out the door in 3 ½ days. I was in a rehab center for another 3 ½ days and sent home with barely the need for a cane, let alone the use of a walker!
