An avid golfer and musician, Brad leads a very active life. He also enjoys spending time with his family and playing football with his kids. However, pain in his lower back and hip forced him to stop doing all of these things.
Initially, Brad thought muscles in his back were causing the pain. When an x-ray revealed that he had severe osteoarthritis and needed a new hip, he was shocked. His orthopaedic surgeon scheduled him for a total hip replacement at ProMedica Wildwood Orthopaedic and Spine Hospital.
Right away Brad was impressed by the hospital. He was amazed by the excellent care and personal attention he received by the hospital staff.
“You felt like number one,” said Brad. “Like the only person on earth.”
Throughout his stay, he thought he was treated like a member of their families, which helped put him at ease.
Brad was also impressed by the quality of the food at ProMedica Wildwood Orthopaedic and Spine Hospital. “My wife, who is a chef, saw all that food and she couldn’t believe it,” he said. “And I couldn’t believe it.” In fact, Brad enjoyed it so much he took the menu home with him to show to his friends.
Brad’s pain has decreased immensely. He is back on the golf course, working on his swing and back to enjoying life.
“My life has changed completely,” explained Brad. “It’s just amazing.”
