10 years ago, I was experiencing significant pain in both of my hips
10 years ago, I was experiencing significant pain in both of my hips. I tried to get help from an orthopedic surgeon at a large group practice, but he was unable to determine the source of my pain. I was simply told that I was too young for a hip replacement before being sent off with a physical therapy script, but without a diagnosis. When physical therapy did not provide any relief, another physical therapist, and a friend of mine, recommended that I see Dr. Domb. Meeting with Dr. Domb and his team gave me hope; Dr. Domb said that he believed that I had pain and he wanted to help me find a solution. From our first meeting, I knew I was in good hands -- Dr. Domb’s confidence was contagious.
Now, after one right hip scope and two left hip scopes, I am pain-free. I am so grateful for the care I have received from the AHI team over the past decade. I do not believe I would have followed the same life path if I had not achieved pain relief. As an elected office holder, I am constantly reminded of my good fortune as I walk in parades or campaign door-to-door. Thank you to Dr. Domb and the team at American Hip Institute - without you, I would not be able to hike, fish, and enjoy my life as I do now!
