“I wanted to share my story with others that may need encouragement.
I am 43 years of age and in November of 2009, I was diagnosed as having Osteoarthritis of my right hip and thus I needed to seriously consider a Total Hip Arthroplasty.
I went to 2 other physicians for second and third opinions, respectively, but I knew that after meeting the other 2 HIGHLY recommended physicians that I only needed to see Dr. Downs here at Hughston Clinic Orthopaedics to replace my hip.
I saw Dr. Downs in mid December of 2009, and immediately Dr. Downs informed me I did in fact need to have this surgery performed, and we scheduled the surgery.
In January 2010, I had my right hip totally replaced by Dr. Downs at Centennial Medical Center and have not looked back since. I stayed in the hospital a few extra days and was released to home for home care and rehab therapy.
It’s now nearing Valentines 2010 and albeit I am still working very diligently to complete my physical therapy, my hip has never felt better.
Dr. Downs has been excellent throughout this entire process as has his staff.
I am so thankful that I went on and had this procedure done. I now have only good days that are pain free to look forward to.
Thanks Dr. Downs, you and your great office staff are just the best!!!”
A VERY SATISFIED AND HAPPY PATIENT,
