Total Hip Replacement Surgery - Patient Stories
- Peg M
"Dr Benjamin Domb performed my total hip replacement surgery (anterior method with MAKOplasty) on Feb. 4, 2013. I had been diagnosed six years earlier at age 58, and I was determined to research the best doctor for my procedure. Dr Domb gave a lecture on MAKOplasty related to hip surgery in July of 2009, and I was impressed. The orthopedic rock stars at Rush and NorthShore did not use this new technology. After further exploring his excellent credentials, I chose Dr Domb as my surgeon.
My surgery took place at Adventist Hinsdale Hospital. Dr. Domb called me at home before the surgery to answer some of my questions. I was pleased with my communication with my doctor and with his knowledgeable physician assistants. The staff at Hinsdale Hospital gave me excellent care. When I returned home after surgery, I was surprised when I did not need any of my pain medications. Dr Domb gave me goals to work toward, and I carefully followed the instructions of my physical therapist.
Today I am back at the health club for my aerobics, pilates, and weightlifting classes. My limp is gone and I can walk for four miles. Best of all, I was able to dance (really dance) at my daughter's wedding on May 11, 2013.
I would highly recommend Dr Benjamin Domb to anyone considering hip replacement surgery."
