Patient Stories


Wally still hits them to the right. Only pain free.



Wally
Golfer / restaurant manager / hip replacement patient

When I was playing golf, I noticed my hip and my back were bothering me. I could play about nine holes and by the tenth or eleventh hole, I was really kind of dragging the rest of the course. It was torture. I was up two, three four times a night in pain. I finally went to the doctor and he said, "You need hip surgery."

St. Luke's has a program called "Stride to Success." It really walks you through the whole process. I knew exactly what to expect. The next morning after surgery, they have you up and walking.

Since the surgery, I'm hiking, I'm back on the golf course - pain free. The enjoyment is back in the game again.
