Hip Replacement for the Orthopedic Surgeon: On the Other Side of the Scalpel; pt.16 & 17

11-05-2012

Just eight days post surgery and already it feels like distant memory for Dr. Alan Beyer, Executive Medical Director of Hoag Orthopedic Institute. He’s now walking without the assistance of a cane, and isn’t taking any more Tylenol. Still just a little sore and plans to go back to work in a few days.
“One of the best decisions I ever made,” adds Dr. Beyer.

12 days post surgery and Dr. Beyer is getting ready to go back to work tomorrow. He’s still walking with a little limp, and uses a cane at the end of the day which is normal. One thing that he found was a little difficult was getting his socks on for first couple weeks. You might need some help with that among other things!
