Shortstop Back To The Diamond

“I played college baseball and was an athlete in several sports in high school. I remained extremely active and played sports for years after college. A few years ago, I developed extreme and constant pain in my hip. I could not sleep through the night, sit in a chair for more than a few minutes, and was in agony. I was diagnosed with a hip labral tear, cam, pincer, and multiple cysts in my joint. In addition, my hip ball joint was malformed and not in the correct shape. Every doctor I contacted or saw refused to perform surgery on me because of my age (49 at the time). They all said that no one would touch me because of this. I finally went to Dr. Nho. He agreed to perform the surgery, and I assured him I would put in the extensive rehab work. After surgery and 9 months of rehab for 3 hours per day, I was able, at age 50, to play in a competitive 12" softball league, playing shortstop and playing at a highly competitive level against players less than half my age. This could not have happened without the stellar work and care by Dr. Nho and his wonderful staff. Now 4 years post-surgery, I remain 100% pain free, am able to perform not only daily activities, but still remain athletically active with no decrease in motion and no deficits of any kind. It has come to the point where I sometimes have to remind myself which hip was done because I can't tell the difference. It is that good. Thank you, Dr. Nho, for taking a chance on a 50-year-old shortstop and for believing in me. Your skills and care have given me back a pain-free life.”
