3 years postop w/ Dr. Kusuma
« on: June 14, 2013, 03:55:48 PM »
My name is Ron and I am 65 years old. I have always been a busy body and love to work outside on my pool and then yard. I have always been an active person. 3 years ago, I began having pain in my left hip that caused me to limp and I was unable to do a lot of things that I normally would do. 

I went to see Dr. Kusuma at Grant Medical Center. He informed me that I had hip OA. He gave me a steroid shot and I felt great...for only a week, unfortunately. Next step was surgery. I was a candidate for a BHR. I had the surgery in October 2010. Upon waking from anesthesia, the arthritic pain was GONE!! Of course, there was the typical postoperative pain and soreness but by the third week, I was wanting to lose the walker and cane. I was given home exercises to do but no outpatient physical therapy was needed!

 I can't say how much I recommend this surgery!

It was a life saver. Thanks to Dr. Kusuma for his wonderful work!

Thank You for your story.  I changed the subject to add Dr. Kusuma's name.  Many people look for stories from specific surgeons.

I am glad you took time to write a story.  If you have any updates in the future, please feel free to add them.

Meanwhile, Good Luck and enjoy that new hip.
