Pam G.

I am extremely grateful to Dr. O’Neill, Jessie and his staff. I had struggled with constant hip pain for almost a year. I finally realized it was more than an overworked muscle and went to see Dr. O’Neill (he was suggested by a friend who is in the medical world). I was diagnosed with Arthritis in my left hip. Dr. O’Neill suggested Direct Anterior Hip Replacement. He explained the surgery and the benefits that went along with this procedure. He and his staff worked to schedule me in for surgery as soon as possible.

The surgery was performed at St. Francis Hospital on March 30, 2015. All the staff at St. Francis was wonderful. I was back in my room by 2 p.m. I felt wonderful! I was up and standing without a walker or crutches by 6 p.m. I was walking the hallways of St. Francis the next morning; I was also able to do steps without any assistance. I had absolutely no pain, it was amazing. I was fortunate; I never had to take any pain medication after the surgery.

I left St. Francis the day after surgery. I was back to work in 2 weeks. My life is back to my normal, which is busy. I have 3 adorable grandchildren from 5 months to 2 years that I can carry, crawl and run with. I am back to being able to walk, exercise, garden, shop without having to take Advil, Tylenol or Ibuprofen.

Thank you so much Dr. O’Neill, Jessie and all the staff I am able to move freely without pain!
