I was experiencing hip pain and it dramatically got worse over time. I was on a trip to Hawaii and I couldn’t go up and down stairs. It hurt while I was scuba diving.
I came to Dr. Crovetti and he said my hip was bone-on-bone. My hip replacement was August 15th and I walked out of Coronado Surgery Center three days later and it was great! The food was fantastic. The staff monitored my progress, walked with me, showed me the exercises I needed and was very impressed that the pain went away almost immediately.
I was back to a regular level of exercising soon and by Christmas, I was back on skis with really no restrictions or limitations. I consider myself an avid skier so I wasn’t skiing intermediate runs, I was on single and double black runs and happy as could be that I decided to have my surgery with Dr. Crovetti.
