At just 50 years of age, Darlene Oglesby has suffered from tremendous hip pain. Many of the things we take for granted would typically leave her in tears. Sitting for a while would hurt, walking would hurt and even just getting out of bed would hurt.
That’s until she met with the doctors at Andrews Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Center.
Andrews is typically known for being THE doctor for professional athletes, with former patients such as Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Peyton Manning, Derek Jeter, Charles Barkley, and Allen Iverson (just to name a few). However, Andrews does more than just help pro athletes, his practice offers the same expert care to “non-athletes” to help get us back in the game of life.
I have my active life back!!
Darlene Oglesby met with Dr. James Flanagan, one of the doctors on the Andrews team. He performed a total left hip replacement. Although a total hip replacement is a major procedure, Darlene Oglesby was able to walk again just two weeks after the surgery.
“The outcome was excellent!” she says, “Prior to surgery, I had very little quality of life. Now just two weeks after surgery, I have my active life back!! I am walking without a walker and I am able to do things that I could not do before!”
The surgery occurred mid-April and her results have been so overwhelmingly positive that she decided to have her other hip joint replaced.
“I went ahead and had the other hip replaced so I could have both hips back to better than ever!”
That was two weeks ago, and Darlene Oglesby is on her way to yet another speedy recovery.
