I’m a 51 year-old firefighter who is 3 weeks post op from having my left hip resurfaced by Dr Raterman out of Tampa.
Dr Raterman resurfaced my right hip 4 years ago and I’ve had great results ever since doing that surgery. Walking without a cane now and riding my bike twice a day in the neighborhood.
My physical therapist comes to the house 3 times a week. I have one more week of home therapy then I’ll drive to a PT facility. Have a 6 week appointment in April and hoping to get cleared back to work at the Fire Department by week 8 or 9. I was playing hockey twice a week before surgery and was told no hockey for 6 months. I do plan on getting cleared for golf after my next appointment with Dr Raterman.
Dr Raterman and his staff at Florida medical Clinic were awesome and I would highly recommend Dr Raterman for Hip Resurfacing.
