A busy mother of three, Julie lives an active life playing with her daughters, but her hip pain made it nearly impossible to keep up. Even basic daily activities were difficult, like carrying the laundry up the stairs and sleeping at night.
After years of conservative treatment and visits to numerous doctors, Julie’s orthopaedic surgeon recommended a total hip replacement. She elected to have surgery at ProMedica Wildwood Orthopaedic and Spine Hospital.
During her stay, Julie was amazed by the
staff’s friendliness and professionalism.
“They had me up walking around [after my surgery] immediately,” she said.
Julie grew to enjoy the nurses and therapists so much she did not want to leave. She was also impressed by the facility itself and the beautiful features that made it seem unlike a typical hospital.
“It was a happy place to be,” she said.
Now, Julie is back to the things she loves to do, including long bike rides, kneeling down to play with sidewalk chalk, and swimming after her daughters.
She’s appreciative of the hospital staff who helped her. “With all the amenities offered to me, they are making [recovery] easy,” said Julie.
“When people ask about ProMedica
Wildwood Orthopaedic and Spine Hospital, I
cannot say enough positive things about it.”
