Dr. Thomas Gross, Dr. Lee Webb, and their staff (Nurse Nancy is the one I spent a lot of time conversing with) have changed my life SO MUCH. In less than a year, I went from having to crawl up stairs on all fours to getting back to my active life. I am 52-years old. I got my new hip. Now… I box, trail run, basketball, ultimate frisbee, crossfit, and more. I was very active before arthritis struck my hip, [...] ruining everything I [did]. JUST OVER ONE YEAR after surgery, I was nearly back to 100%. I couldn’t believe it! Dr. Gross’ pain management is amazing. Around here in the NC area, there are several of his patients with the exact same [hip resurfacing] surgery. We all call him “Dr. Magic”. My sister lives in SC just north of [Columbia]. I stayed with her for a week after surgery. She and my brother-n-law were shocked by the speed of recovery and are telling all their friends about Dr. Magic. People who knew me before arthritis, [...] right before the surgery, and [...] now are asking about Dr. Magic.
Now it is two years, and [I'm] fully recovered. My progress now is NOT about the surgery but is about me and [the] efforts I make. Just over a year after surgery, my running partner signed [us] up for one of the hardest marathons in NC. We finished our 26.2 mile marathon in 5:15. Not too shabby considering the terrain. It was good to be sore but not in pain! A marathon. 19 months after my surgery. Thank you Dr. Gross!
