I couldn’t be happier with Dr. Owen O’Neill and his team. The whole experience has exceeded my expectations. Before my left hip started giving me trouble, I was very active at the club doing HIIT, barre and spinning classes, but I gradually had to stop. I wish I didn’t wait a year and a half before finally deciding to go through a total hip replacement. Dr. O’Neill was highly recommended by a friend, so I decided to go through with it. Since this would be my first surgery, I was very nervous about pain, having to depend on pain medications and physical therapy. I thought I would be laid up for a couple months or more. To my surprise, I had no pain at all and took only Tylenol for 10 days (no opioids). The only physical therapy needed was walk, walk, walk and a few leg exercises. I was able to walk around my cul-de-sac with a walker the second day home and I ditched the walker after 5 days. I’ve gradually increased my walking to 3 miles per day. All of my friends and family thought I was a “rock star,” they couldn’t believe how well I was doing in such a short time. Now after 8 weeks, I am able to get back to the club and resume all my normal activities. I have, and definitely will always, recommend Dr. O’Neill to anyone with hip, shoulder or knee issues.
