Happy Happy Happy

Having pain with every step with no pain after my hip replacement, I am thrilled with Dr. Michael Higgins surgery. From the staff to the Operation at Sentara Care Plex Orthopedics Surgery Wing, I was treated with excellent care. I would recommend Dr Higgins with 5 stars. He and the Orthopedic wing at Sentara Care Plex are the best kept secret in Hampton Roads!

Excellent results

Dr Higgins did a total hip replacement in 2012 for me and a revision on the other hip in 2013. This was from a hip replacement in 99 done at MCV. Both surgeries went well and I responded to the surgery well...Thank God! I have an active job teaching tennis and have been able to continue in my occupation since about 5 weeks after each surgery. Of course not full force but was able to get back to work. Dr Higgins made sure I understood all that was going on and listened to all my concerns. I did have some bursitis show up sometime after the first surgery and it took some time for it to heal. Come to find out I was actually overworking the muscles. But these are things that one's own body deals with and everyone is different as to how the body reacts. Finally, I found Dr Higgins to be a good listener, very concerned on the impact of the surgery, and the followup was excellent. Highly recommend Him!

So glad Dr Higgins did my total hip replacement

I wasn't sure I should do the hip replacement, but now 2 months afterwards am so glad I did. Didn't realize how bad the pain was until it was gone. Don't do the surgery unless you are willing to do the exercises after physical therapy.
