New Found Opportunity

Jenny Rodriguez is a 25 year old who sustained a traumatic injury resulting in severe degenerative joint disease in her hip. She spent the last three years living with a hip joint with such limited range of motion that the simple act of sitting in a chair was impossible.

Our team performed a total hip replacement on Jenny and the day after surgery, she sat in disbelief at the edge of the bed with a straight upright posture and two new hip joints that could bend. With her mother by her side, Jenny took her first post operative steps and within a few days she walked out the front door of the hospital on crutches with a broad smile on her face and an opportunity for a new, pain free life.
