Hip Replacement Surgery

Hip Replacement Surgery

Hey folks, I want to give a huge thank you to Dr. Sastry who performed hip replacement surgery on me. From the moment I met with Dr. Sastry to talk about the surgery, he gave me a feeling of confidence that the outcome would turn out great. The procedure done at York Hospital and my pre-op meeting with the anesthesiologist, physical therapy and hospital staff all addressed my questions, overviewed the pre and post operating procedures and left me with additional confidence that I was in good hands. The operation was a great success and I was in the hospital a total of 12 hours, I slept in my own bed and woke up the next day with no pain in my right hip, the first time in 3 years. I did every thing asked of me from daily exercisers, meeting with Visiting Nurse staff who checked in on me twice a week, to sitting back and taking it easy and heal. My follow up meeting with Barry Cusson was great, though he did a mild scold as I didn’t have my “cane” with me but all in all he was happy to see that things were going well. Yes, I used my cane every day thereafter until my follow up meeting with Dr. Sastry. I wish I could express the happiness I felt when Dr. Sastry walked in to the exam room. Dr. Sastry showed me the x-ray and told me everything looked textbook perfect. I cannot express enough how thankful I was to hear that result. Thank you Dr. Sastry!! But I was not done I had several weeks of physical therapy and home exercised to do. I want to give a HUGE shout out to the Hilary and Annie, of Pro Care who pushed me in my physical therapy work and helped me extend the flexibility of my leg and hip. Thank you both! Every day I am thankful to the fact that I have no pain in my right hip and can get my life back in many way. Thank you all; Dr. Sastry, Barry Cusson, York Hospital staff and Pro Care. You all performed beyond expectations. THANK YOU!
