Jenifer’s Story

Before Jenifer started experiencing hip pain, she considered herself “a bit of a part girl.” She enjoyed dancing with her husband, traveling, antiquing, and being active. She also liked to be outdoors and feed the many ducks that live in the pond behind her home—until the pain made it almost impossible.

After years of conservative treatments, Jenifer’s orthopaedic surgeon recommended she have a total hip replacement. After considering her options, Jenifer selected ProMedica Wildwood Orthopaedic and Spine Hospital because of its convenient location, great reputation and new, state-of-the-art facility.

When Jenifer arrived for surgery at Wildwood, she was immediately impressed by the hospital staff. “My quality of care and treatment by the nurses at Wildwood was stupendous,” she said. “I don’t know how they found such top quality staff to care of people.” Everyone was courteous and reassuring, which made her feel comfortable and less nervous.

There were several other features at Wildwood that helped make Jenifer’s stay more enjoyable, including the excellent menu that she could order from whenever she wanted.

The new, state-of-the-art facility and caring staff really stood out to Jenifer. “I felt like they knew what they were doing there,” she said. “Their specialty really shows.”

Today, Jenifer is back on her feet, moving with ease and confidence. She is back outside feeding the ducks and dancing with her husband.

“I can honestly say without any question, it is the hospital to go to for any kind of orthopaedic procedure.”
