Debra A.

I had the anterior approach hip replacement on May 1st, 2017.  The reason I am writing this is because I was you at one point. I wasn’t sure which doctor to use. I wasn’t sure what I was going to experience. Most of all, I wanted to see what the outcome of others were. I am 52 years old and was worried I wouldn’t be able to play Pickleball again. I went through the Excel program with Dr. Owen O’Neill.  I had surgery at the Crosstown Surgery Center. The surgery went well. A few hours later, I was moved across the street to an assisted living facility to spend one night to recover/rehab. I was up and walking just a few hours after surgery.

The entire staff at both places were very kind and put me at ease. I followed all of the exercises and stretching suggestions. Dr. O’Neill told me I would be back on the Pickleball court 8 weeks after surgery. My goal was to play in the July 4th tournament. He was right!  I was playing slowly at 6 weeks and by July 4th, 2017 (8 weeks and 3 days) I was in the tournament and we won the gold!

I highly recommend Dr. Owen O’Neill, Jessie Donovan and the rest of the staff at Twin Cities Orthopedics!
