Patricia Stroop – Hip Replacement

Orthopaedic & Spine Center

Dr. John BurrowAfter “trying” to manage pain in my left hip for over a year, I finally went to an Ortho doctor for relief. I won’t disclose the doctor’s name, but after a single cortisone shot which did nothing and a very blunt “you need to face the fact that you need hip replacement,” I decided to seek out a second opinion….and boy am I glad I did! After my first visit with Dr. Burrow, I knew I had come to the right place. He showed genuine concern about my pain and provided me with detailed information on my options; I could try steroid injections which would alleviate the pain for some period of time or I could opt to have hip replacement surgery (knowing I would ultimately need surgery, but the choice was mine on when). I decided to try the injections and they actually worked really well for about 2 years (receiving an injection every 3 months), but then they stopped working, so I knew it was time for surgery. Now, just a little over a month later, I can say that I wish I had done it sooner. I am pain free and back to where I was long before my hip started hurting. Dr. Burrow and his team are wonderful and made me feel at ease through the entire process. Everyone I meet now, I tell them if they ever have to have hip replacement surgery, schedule an appointment with Dr. Burrow and they will receive the best care possible! Thank you so much Dr. Burrow and to your entire team at OSC!!!
