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
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
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
I have been writing instructional articles and testing equipment
