Expertise, dedication and commitment
Dear Dr. Bruce Janke,
I wanted to put in writing how appreciative I am of the amazing anterior hip replacement surgery you performed on me on October 18, 2010.
When I realized that the pain and discomfort I was experiencing, plus not being able to walk without limping and not being able to sleep meant that I needed hip replacement surgery, I researched very extensively all the options that were available. Your name and the procedure you perform is the one I chose. GREAT DECISION.
I went home on the 4th day after surgery with minimal restrictions; used a walker for 2 weeks and a cane for 2 1/2 days; no physical therapy other than walking and several exercises to do at home that took 20 minutes. Also, went back to work 3 weeks after surgery. When I was concerned about discomfort that I was experiencing (not pain), you assured me that it would pass and you were right! It is now 7 weeks since surgery; I sleep at night, I walk without limping, and I drove 2 weeks after surgery. I can actually bend down, or lift my leg to put socks on and tie shoelaces — unbelievable.
Friends and family are astonished when they see me walking without a limp in such a short period of time after surgery. So thank you so much for your expertise, your dedication and your commitment to ensuring the best outcome for your patients.
