Staffing was efficient, waiting room comfortable, waiting time good. I did recover and my self-diagnosis was correct. Will most likely return if need be.

Well
, God bless him, looked at the radiographs for my left knee and didn't hesitate to say I needed a total knee replacement and then offered to do it if that was "OK" with me? OK with me? I was ecstatic. I didn't need to ask him; he offered to do it. He looked at the problem, identified the pathology, realized he could repair it and offered to do it. The others surgeons were obviously too concerned with "peripheral" issues instead of just the immediate problem at hand and whether or not they could do the job!
Therefore, I came back to S.
when my Right Knee started to give me problems. I found out I did require a Total knee replacement for the right knee now! These are very aggressive surgeries and painful, afterwards. I wasn't looking forward to it, but knew if I followed through and did the physical therapy, it would be much better by the end of the summer. If I did nothing at all the ends of the bone would continue to degrade and scrape against each other as I walked, giving me increased pain and discomfort, not a good tradeoff.
I had to have the surgery performed in Lancaster since his practice is in Lancaster (Lancaster Regional which used to be called St.
). They have been renovating the hospital - it is now considered a "for-profit" institution. I registered early on 6/21 in the Day Hospital as instructed, which was uneventful except for the fact I was asked if I could pay for any part of my daily co-pay (since I would be an in-patient for ~ 3 days). This is the first time I have been asked by a Registrar in a hospital to "pay up front" for any part of my insurance co-pay" instead of having them just bill me for that, which is typically what happens. They also bill for what you cannot pay, but I didn't expect this and it left a "bad" taste in my mouth since I didn't feel it was a very customer-friendly thing to ask at that time. They could have waited, at least, until the surgery was completed and I was feeling less nervous and tense. I just thought it was in poor taste to present the request at that time.
I was soon
into the patient prep area and nursing staff helped me prep for surgery; then
into an "anesthesia" suite where I was prepped in a special way (different from my 1st surgery) - they give an epidural to numb the body from the waist down which is a bit unnerving, but helps immensely with pain control after surgery plus giving a femoral block in the leg receiving the knee replacement. This femoral block will stay in for a couple of days with anesthetic agent infused into the leg to keep it at a certain level of "numbness" which helps the patient with pain control instead of gobbling up more pain pills (good idea). Dr.
came by this anesthesia prep area to check on me and make sure I was feeling OK and to explain what was going on since I had never been prepped this way before. I then saw him again in surgery before I was put "to sleep" and again after surgery. The surgery did not take as long as I expected it would take - he must have the steps down to a science and he seems to work well with his surgical team to get the results he wants. One thing i especially appreciate about him is his attitude - he is sweet, funny, and down to earth, NOT pompous and self-righteous like many surgeons tend to be (and I know because I've worked in many hospitals in my life). He's interested in using his talents and gifts to get the job done and helping his patients get back to their lives in better shape than how they entered his office.
I'm still recuperating, so I'm not totally healed yet. I still have to go through the whole outpatient physical therapy segment of rehab for total knee replacements which is a lot of work and painful. The PA,
came by to see me in the hospital. He was very friendly and down-to-earth and easy to talk with. We actually laughed together! He listened to me and adjusted my medications.
