POST-OP BHR PATIENT TESTIMONIAL
“I have had both hips resurfaced by Dr. Rogerson. I had been told by other doctors that hip replacement was my only option and I seemed a bit young for that so should try to manage the pain as long as I could. I could no longer manage the pain. Most days I had to crawl up my stairs at home. I avoided leaving the house because my walk had become a lurch, and getting into a car was a very painful experience. Every minute of my life was consumed with dealing with the pain. I cannot stress enough how my life had become no life and I could find no help.
All I was given was more narcotics which I hated and they were never enough to stop the pain. It hurt me to know how my family was affected by my situation. A friend then suggested I see Dr. Rogerson. That visit saved my life.
Dr.Rogerson viewed my hip x-rays, was the first doctor to acknowledge how bad my hips were and said he could help. He explained in detail what the hip resurfacing procedure was, answered every question, discussed all the pros and cons and suggested I research him and this operation. No need, it all felt like exactly what I needed.
A few months later I had one hip done and was excited to have the second one done six months after that. I felt very well prepared for the operation and how to deal with recovery. Dr. Rogerson and his staff took care of everything. The package I received explained every detail and I knew that if I had any questions, I could call and be helped immediately. I cannot say enough about the care, professionalism and skill of Dr. Rogerson and his staff. The pre and post op care is second to none.
My hips are never in pain now. I can bend down, climb stairs, get in a car, and do anything I want including running with my greyhounds; and there is no pain at all. This seems like a miracle to me and to my family. Dr. Rogerson gave me my life back. If anyone is ever considering hip resurfacing and wants to talk to someone who has been a patient, I would be happy to chat.”
