I was in for a visit to coordinate my scheduled surgery and pre op testing. This is my second knee replacement this year. I think the best thing is that I am willing to have the second surgery five months after the first one.
Though the doctor was advised that I was seeking a second opinion, he had x-rays showing the cusp of my hip socket was not fully formed which would ultimately wear and be painful. I fully respect the conclusion . However, no examination was performed to determine whether the discomfort I was experiencing was indeed the hip and not my back, muscles or some other problem. I was informed that various factors may contribute to discomfort and when the discomfort became severe enough, I might consider the replacement of the hip joint. Though this may be a true, I am not comfortable with the knowledge I acquired. Otherwise, the doctor was polite, and knowledgeable and confident and should I ultimately require a hip replacement I will definitely return and request it be performed by this doctor.
The doctor explained the surgery and post-op issues with great concern for my well being. We spent 15 min but he was patient in answering my questions.
