My Name is Ray, 46 years and an Airline Pilot.
About a year ago my Hip totally gave out on Me. Eighteen years prior I was in an accident; the trauma was a dislocation. Now the pain had become unbearable. I could not windsurf, surf, step into a car or even walk through the Terminal at an Airport. Something had to be done!
I have the ways and means to go anywhere in the world for treatment. After months of research, recommendations and consultations; everything directed to Dr. Sands and the Birmingham Hip Resurfacing.
I went into his office having done my homework. During my consultation Dr. Sands thoughtfully explained the options (Dr. Sands was the only one for whom even presented options) and risk for a person my age, and answered every question I could throw his way. Just the type of individual I’d like to have on a Flight Crew/Co-Pilot.
Dr. Sands and his staff, the surgery, the hospital, the nurses, the home health care and Rehabilitation facility all hit a home run and I am Pain Free!
Today I am back to work and play 100%. I am so grateful for a second chance. We are fortunate to live in a day and age of this technology and expertise.
It is my hope Dr. Sands would be as comfortable flying as a passenger on my flight as I felt confident placing my future in his hands.
I have been writing instructional articles and testing equipment for Windsurfing Magazine for over 12 years.
Thank you for your web-site, its content and emotional support.
