This was my second opinion! My first orthopedic surgeon said, you’re to young, a little to heavy, lose a little weight, and come back again. I said I was going to seek a second opinion in Portland, they said “good luck, they will say the same thing”.
My first appointment with Dr. Bryan, Barry and Nicki was amazing! Nicki greeted us, showed us to a room and said Barry would be with us soon. Barry arrived 5 minutes later, he was very thorough! I was shocked when he wanted to assess my range of motion, as the first P.A. didn’t do that. After Barry, Dr. Bryan came in. He was very professional, I told him what I had been told and without missing a beat said, yes, you are overweight, and you are young (55), but the severity of the arthritis in your hips far outweighs your age or weight, we’re going to do this!
Flash forward to surgery day! From the time I checked in at the hospital everyone there told me I had the best surgical team on the job! Everyone who cared for me told me that the attention to detail, and caring ways of Dr. Bryan and his team make them better at their jobs.
Surgery time! Dr. Bryan came in, marked my hip and a short 4 hours later, I was resting comfortably in my room. Dr. Bryan, Barry, Nicki and the entire surgical team are amazing! Barry checked on me prior to discharge, Nicki checked on me after I arrived home! I will have my right hip done soon and am so thankful for Dr. Bryan, Barry, Nicky and the team at Orthopedic & Sports Medicine of Oregon!
