Life has so much more meaning

I had both shoulders replaced; before the surgeries, I could not reach the top of my head, movements were so limited and I really wasn't living the quality of life I want and deserve. Now I can reach behind my back, use a back brush, wash and comb my hair which I have let grow again since I can take care of it myself. Doctor Ward, is a very inspiring person, he also doesn't like for you to be in pain. I am truly blessed to have had him as my surgeon and doctor. It is now going on to 3 years and all is well with my shoulders and I now have a 8 month old grandson and I hold him and play with him and rock him, I love it. Life is meant to live to the fullest and my surgery done by Dr. Ward allows me to live that quality of life. I am an optimistic person and determined to get quality back for me and I have it. I am so proud to have had him as my surgeon.

Excellent Dr. He did a hip replacement on me. I saw two other regular orthopedic Drs, but because of the damage to the hip bones, they would not do the surgery. My only complaint was getting prescription refills after the surgery. I left messages and no one got back to me for 2weeks. I tried again to get refills a year later for another issue...same result. I was in a lot of pain and finally my cancer Dr gave me a prescription.

Wonderful doctor he cares and works so many long hours away from his little family, the reason i know is that this doctor has done surgery on myself and my husband. My sister has cancer when i told him about her you could feel how concerned he was he has a gift that the Lord has given to him and his team.
