After experiencing severe hip pain and feeling like she was living on aspirin, Patricia began researching her options. She heard an advertisement for a free hip pain seminar given by Dr. John Woodward on the radio and attended the event in November 2014. During the seminar, many people with hip pain were able to openly ask questions about their options, the total hip replacement surgery and recovery.
“I was so impressed with Dr. Woodward’s presence, his knowledge on the topic and his candidness when answering our questions,” said Patricia. “He took the time out of his day to talk to us and it felt like he truly cared about helping us.”
On January 7, just two months after initially attending the seminar, Patricia underwent total hip replacement surgery. Just five days after surgery, she was off of all pain medications, including aspirin. Two weeks after surgery, Patricia reports feeling stronger every day.
“During this process, I never faced an unknown and never felt alone. Dr. Woodward and his staff were very caring, and I had complete confidence in them from the beginning,” said Patricia. “Before this surgery, my lifestyle was extremely limited due to the severe hip pain. Today, I feel like I can accomplish more than ever before, and Dr. Woodward opened that door for me. I feel immense gratitude and my heart is filled with optimism for the future.
