Patient Testimonials Submit Testimonials Paul N, 43 yrs's Story My doctor, the technology — they gave me the freedom to be myself again.My hip pain was undiagnosed for awhile. I was in pain no matter what I did. I have three children who are active in sports year-round — which means I need to stay active, too. Just a day on my feet was exhausting, but what was worse was the inability to sleep. Ultimately, the pain became so great, no kind of painkiller could help. So, I interviewed a number of surgeons until I found my Stryker orthopaedic specialist, who had done hundreds of these surgeries. As soon as I woke up, I knew I made the right decision. It really was instantaneous that the pain relief was so significant. My doctor, the technology, the experience — they were all integral to making a good decision. It’s made a big difference in my life, and to the people around me as well.
