After 3 years of finding ways to buy time and delay surgery, I decided to go ahead with right hip replacement surgery on November 12, 2013. I am a very active 61 year old and wanted to stay that way. My goals were to continue playing golf, tennis, hiking and biking. For 9 months prior to the surgery I used a trainer to take me through a “pre-hab” program to strengthen all the muscles
Over a year ago, I suffered a spine and hip injury at work. I experienced a lot of pain, which affected my ability to stand, walk, sit, and sleep. I needed to constantly increase a dose of pain medicine to deal with my pain. Unfortunately, the medicine would become ineffective after a while.
I experience the best care I have ever had in my life
Dr. Domb made me feel comfortable from the moment I stepped into the patient's room. He listened to my worries about my hip injury and recognized a potential problem right away. He asked me take some X-rays and get an MRI, which revealed to him that I had a hip impingement and labral tear, and he recommended a hip arthroscopy surgery.
My initial symptoms were pain in the hip flexor area. I honestly did not know what it was, then got an MRI which showed a tear. I was highly recommended to see Dr Domb and I am glad I did. He was very personable.
I have had hip pain for almost 4 years. I saw Dr Domb for the first time one year ago and had the surgery. By the first postop appointment I was so thrilled and excited the pain had already diminished. And by 3-4 months postop I was about 80% changed in pain. It felt so much better.
Hi Dr. Domb, I want to let you know I am so happy with my hip replacement. At the time I could not walk without the help of a cane. Today I am back to walking 4 to 7 miles a day and doing Zumba and Mixfit.
Dr. Domb and his team are great to work with.
