Dear Dr. Matsen Ko, just a short note to thank you for giving me my life back. Prior to hip replacement surgery, many of the basic life activities were either not possible or extremely painful. I was unable to place a sock on my left foot without the help of my wife, unable to tie the shoe lace on my left foot, unable to walk without pain, unable to stand from a sitting position without a grab bar of some type, to name a few things I couldn’t accomplish. Since the surgery in March, I have no limitations and I am pain free. The relief was immediate.Thanks again – my wife thanks you too! I highly recommend that anyone with severe hip pain consider the replacement option sooner rather than later.
