The decision to undergo hip or knee replacement is one that should not be taken lightly, but oftentimes patients let their fear of the unknown prevent them from making the decision that will best impact their life. If you believe you’re a candidate for hip or knee replacement, we urge you to keep reading and learn about all the wonderful reasons why a replacement operation may be just what you need.
Is Replacement Surgery Worth It?
Instead of focusing on what could go wrong or how physical therapy after the operation may be a lot of work, consider all you’ll be able to do assuming the surgery goes as expected. Here are a few snippets from reviews we’ve received from satisfied patients following their hip or knee replacement operation.
“Thanks to my hip replacement with Dr. Botero, I ran a full marathon without any pain just 13 months after surgery!” ~ Eric
You may have thought that you’ll never run again due to a degenerative hip or knee, but as former patient Eric tells us, he was able to go 26.2 miles on his new hip!
“I can climb stairs without pain because of my left knee replacement” ~ Nancy
Running a marathon may not be on your to-do list after surgery, but everyday tasks like going up and down stairs will be on everyone’s list. Do it pain free following a replacement operation.
“I can get up from a seated position without experiencing pain” ~ Bill
Similar to Nancy’s point, sometimes we take for granted the most mundane actions. Know that pain when standing isn’t normal or something you just need to learn to deal with because you’re getting older. Consider replacement surgery and make daily tasks more bearable.
“I can walk just fine without a limp of any kind just three weeks after my total knee replacement with Dr. Botero.” ~ Charles
Not only can Dr. Botero help fix your gait, but using the most advanced techniques, he can do so in a way that leads to a much shorter recovery time than with a more invasive operation.
“I can enjoy life again” and “I can have hope for my future.” ~ Sherry and Renee
These are two of the most powerful testimonies we’ve heard from former patients after their replacement operation. Sometimes pain can get so bad that it impacts our quality of life and our ability to enjoy normal activities. With a replacement operation, we were able to turn back the clock for some patients and help them get back to enjoying life. If your knee or hip is affecting your quality of life, call Dr. Botero to learn about your options.
We love hearing from former patients, but most of all, we enjoy being able to help people reclaim areas of their lives that they have lost. Whether that’s running a marathon or simply enjoying the little things in life, we can help you meet your goals. Give Dr. Botero’s office a call today to see what we can do for you.
