Patient Stories from Orthopaedic Services
Patient Costen Irons
Patient Costen Irons: Even though Costen Irons was young and athletic, he suffered from debilitating hip pain. But a unique hip arthroscopy procedure performed at Wake Forest Baptist has left him pain-free.
Patient Joe Owings: Joe Owings was a busy man, so getting right back to work after a partial knee replacement was important. In fact, he returned to work two days after having a procedure that reduces pain and recovery time.
Patient Nellie Kirk: Nellie Kirk suffered for years with severe pain in her ankle caused by a serious accident. Now after having an ankle replacement, she is walking everywhere - she even climbed Grandfather Mountain in western N.C.
Patient Sarah Shutt: Born with spina bifida, Sarah Shutt has had 21 surgeries to help her walk and function. For her most recent surgery, orthopaedic surgeon L. Andrew Koman replaced her worn hip socket with a new one created from pelvic bone.
Patient Russ Decker: Russ Decker’s anterior hip replacement surgery was on Wednesday. He walked into church with a cane Sunday. He threw away the cane soon after surgery and then returned to the golf course in about one month.
