“I was amazed at the lack of pain during my recovery. I got offered strong pain relievers such as OxyContin. I even refused Tylenol. I stuck with CDB to relax me and let me sleep. The doctor and all the other people who helped me had no problem with my choice except for one nurse who attempted to take it away from me saying that he thought it lowered my blood pressure. Dr. Karegeannes was very understanding, and I believe that he did an outstanding job in replacing my hip. As a polio survivor, there is some anesthesia I may not be able to use. The anthologist was very understanding and used a spinal which I never felt. Compared to my recovery from a knee replacement the hip replacement was a “Walk in the Park.””

“I changed my primary doctor and the new doctor referred me to Dr. Karegeannes. I am so glad he did. I thought and had been told I needed a knee replacement. That was not the case. I only needed knee repair. Dr. Karegeannes knew what to do and he did it. It took about a month of healing and a month in physical therapy and now I can walk better climb stairs and DANCE. What a difference it made in my life. For this 77 year old woman, I can enjoy many more years without the wheel chair. Thank you Dr. Karegeannes.”
