Patient Story 794256260

"I had a total hip replacement last October.  Before the surgery, it was bone on bone and getting very difficult to walk and so incredibly painful. At 58 I am too young to be crippled like this. Dr. Thaxter and his assistant made me feel relaxed and took good care of me. They spent time answering all my questions and used a top of the line hip joint. The Fresno Surgical Hospital was a wonderful place to have the replacement done.  My surgical pain was kept to a tolerable level and my hip pain was gone. I went back to work doing light duty after three weeks without even a crutch. I faithfully did my exercises and now after seven weeks I am about ninety percent of normal.  If I ever need another replacement I will go to Dr. Thaxter." -- David D.
