From the time I was a small child, I’ve loved being around and riding horses. A few years ago, that had to be given up, along with many other physical activities due to severe osteoarthritis in my right hip.
Upon realizing that the joint needed replacement, I began looking for options—Mayo Clinic and local orthopaedic surgeons to name a few. Thankfully, a colleague at my agency told me about her father, who traveled from Colorado in 2005 to Columbia, SC for hip resurfacing with Dr. Gross.
I immediately looked up the website, read everything and viewed the videos, then contacted Lee.
Within a few weeks, my prayers were answered and I have been riding horses again since spring of 2008. On September 6 my husband took this picture of Ebony and me, a horse I ride in Wolf Laurel, NC where we have a retirement home.
Being able to do what I love and be physically active again is worth much more than any money could buy! Thank you, Dr. Gross, Lee, Nancy and all the TEAM at Midlands Ortho.
