Jim Banks Hip Resurfacing with Dr. Kusuma 2013
June 27, 2013
Before surgery, Dr. Sharat Kusuma and associates were recommended to me by two friends that had successful hip treatments.
I went on the minimally invasive orthopedics website to investigate my options for treating my sore left hip. X-rays showed a spur and arthritis. The hip resurfacing procedure looked like an option.
On November 2012 Dr. Kusuma determined that I could have the hip resurfacing procedure.
He and his staff explained all the details. I even watched an operation of this kind on the web. It did not look that bad.
Finally my surgery was scheduled for April 24, 2013. After walking 9 holes of golf on April 22 with a painful ending, I knew why I was having the surgery.
It has been eight weeks now and I started hitting short wedge golf shots on Sunday June 23.
That is as good as you can expect. Dr. Kusuma and the entire team at the Grant Medical Center have been very helpful and professional. I can’t compliment them enough.
