Orthopedic Patient Story

Beverly—66 years old. Manteno, Illinois. Computer system installer, mother of 5, Grandmother  of 15, hip replacement patient.

Riverside: What led you to seek care at Riverside?

Beverly: I had hip pain and was constantly limping. I had my other hip replaced 12 years ago and knew the symptoms of what I was experiencing. I wanted to see the best physician there is, and I was referred to Milton Smit, M.D.

Riverside: How was your experience at Riverside?

Beverly: It was excellent. More than anything, I felt like the staff really cared about what I was experiencing.

Riverside: Do you feel the technology is more advanced at Riverside?

Beverly:Yes. For the first hip replacement, I was in the hospital for six days. This time (at Riverside) I was here for three days. I started physical therapy the day after my surgery.
