Dr. Gross and Lee Webb are amazing, caring, dedicated people.

Thank you hardly expresses my feelings and gratitude toward Dr. Gross, Lee Webb, the office and hospital staff. I had always been a very active person. Riding 2,000 miles each summer on my road bike, golfing, downhill skiing, rollerblading marathons and working out at the gym 5 to 6 days a week defined my life.

My 45th birthday marked the beginning of my struggle with osteoarthritis in my right hip and over the next five years all of these activities were slowly taken away from me as my hip deteriorated.

I climbed [this mountain] 120 days after my 2nd hip resurfacing surgery.

This picture is from the top of Mount of the Holy Cross which is 14,005 feet. I climbed it on August 25, 120 days after my 2nd hip resurfacing surgery. It was a 12-mile hike and 5,700 vertical feet in elevation gain. I felt great and know that I couldn't have done it with those old hips. You guys are awesome and I will continue to send anyone I know that needs help to you.

Hip Resurfacing  Patient

Surgery has changed my life back to what it used to be.

I wanted to let you know a few success stories since I had my hip resurfaced by Dr. Gross. In August of 2006, approx. 1 year after surgery, I met my goal of climbing my first Colorado 14 thousand foot peak called “Grey’s Peak”. 1 week later I got pregnant and we are expecting our first child in May. For years, I could not consider having a baby due to the chronic and constant pain that I was living with.

Two years after the procedure, I now play tennis several times a week, with no joint pain whatsoever.

I can't tell you how indebted I feel to Dr. Gross, Ms. Webb, and Midlands Orthopedics for restoring my active lifestyle. I had always been active - biking, skiing, tennis, lacrosse, etc. But, starting in 2002, I began to develop severe osteoarthritis in my left hip, and I was soon unable to run; even walking was painful.

I thought I was faced with a choice of a total hip replacement, which - since I was in my 50s and used to being active - didn't appeal to me at all, or increasing doses of pain medication, which didn't really help very much.

Fortunately, I found out about hip resurfacing and made arrangements to come to South Carolina for that procedure.
