Approximately three years ago I noticed serious stiffness and lack of mobility in my left hip when working out, almost immediately unrelenting severe pain in this area set in. I had been a patient of Dr. Kimball for minor knee issues in the past, but brought my hip issues to the forefront. Dr. Kimball diagnosis was immediate, and accurate. My left hip required a hip replacement. The decision was not a question, I was having to use a can to walk, which negatively impacted my lumbar spine and I was totally overwhelmed by pain. The subsequent operation was unbelievably effective. I was walking and doing stairs (under Dr. Kimball’s guidance and the assistance of the physical therapist), the afternoon of the surgery. Absolutely no complications ensued, today I am pain free, working out including walking on a treadmill daily, but my story does not end here. About six months ago, my right hip completely failed, it seemed the pain and site complications were far worse than my left hip. Without a moment is hesitation I went to see Dr. Kimball. The right hip was replaced with the same results, walking the day of the operation, no complications, only missed one week of work. As I sit and pen this ‘Testimonial’ I can say I have honestly forgotten about the hip pain and have to remind myself I had both my hips replaced.
