Patient Testimonial - 1520020352

First Name:

Dr. Southerland and his PA Joel Phillips were fantastic. In fact, the whole Rebound Team is fantastic for many reasons. The most amazing thing is that I was pain free from the minute I woke up from double hip replacement surgery! No arthritic pain, but not even incision pain. After 3 months of recovery, I was in the gym doing yoga, stationary bike, elliptical machine and walking up and down the gym's two-story stairs. And I suspect that I will be back on the squash court in another 2 months.

The whole Rebound experience is great. First, the Team educates you before and after surgery so that you know what to expect and how to make a speedy recovery. Second, Dr. Southerland and his PA Joel are highly skilled and compassionate. They answered all of our many questions before and after the surgery. They performed the surgery (both hips) in less than 2.5 hours leaving only two 5-inch scars. Third, I had great nursing care and physical therapy while in the hospital ... yes, you start walking right after the surgery. And fourth, I had great physical therapy from Mike Colby at Rebound for two months. His weekly evaluations and advice on movement allowed me to progress through ever more demanding physical tasks at just the right pace for a quick recovery.

It's the whole Rebound organization that makes the orthopedic experience wonderful and takes much of the anxiety out of having major surgery. I can't say enough good things about the core people involved in my care: Dr. Southerland, Joel Phillips (PA) and Mike Colby (PT).
