Dr. Vannozzi is, without a doubt, the finest surgeon any patient could hope to have. In the past 2 years, he has provided me with two new hips and each operation has been a qualified success.
This time, I was discharged from the hospital after 2 nights and a nurse came to my house on 2 occasions. An excellent physical therapist, Hazel, also came to the house and worked with me for 1 week. After 16 days, Dr. Vannozzi cleared me to drive and I am now doing 4 weeks of outpatient PT.
All aspects of my operation – before and after – have been quite magnificent. I did not need any equipment, as I had it from my first operation on the opposite hip, two years ago. I did not use a walker or crutches and was free-walking after 5 days.
I see Dr. Vannozzi again in December, hen he says he will clear me to ski in Colorado in January where I am a ski and snow shoe guide.
