Dear Dr. Leone,
It’s a miracle that I am the way I am just 5 weeks after a full hip replacement. I am a very active and young 59-year-old lady who can now walk, exercise, work and have a full life again…free of pain!
Only 5 weeks ago, I was in excruciating pain all over my body. My limp had gotten so bad over the last 6 months that my entire body hurt. I took OTC and prescribed meds but nothing helped the pain that I was experiencing. When I would try and do any exercise or stretching, my pain only got worse. I had reached that point where I knew I had to do something. I simply could not go on living like this with morning-to-night pain. I was miserable!
I met Dr. Leone who evaluated me. I felt so confident that I scheduled my surgery that very same day. To me, Dr. Leone is the best surgeon in the world. He has made me all better. I once again feel whole. His staff and Susan are wonderful. With the help of my therapist I am now walking fine without even a cane, just 5 weeks after surgery.
I am so grateful that you were put into my life.
Me being pain free is truly a miracle.

Thanks to you, I’m now just 9 weeks since surgery and I’m doing great. I am a walking miracle of your work. If you’d ever like me to speak to another patient or “show off,” I’ll be happy to. If I knew that I would have turned out like this, I would have done it a year ago when I started to go downhill.
