Reaching Their "Joint" Replacement Goals

Health Articles, Patient Stories |
Susan and Jim Rosica

Doylestown Health's Orthopedic Institute is a comprehensive center, featuring fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons, fully coordinated care teams and state-of-the art technology and facilities ensure patients receive the best care available.

Susan and Jim Rosica loved supporting their grandchildren at their sporting events. But both Doylestown residents suffered from chronic joint pain issues that pre-empted most outdoor activity.

In 2013, Susan received a "resoundingly successful" knee replacement from Chuck Burrows, MD, medical director of Doylestown Health's Orthopedic Institute. In September 2014, Jim followed suit, with Dr. Burrows replacing Jim's arthritic hip. Jim was eligible for an innovative rapid recovery program.

"The process was just phenomenal. I was walking around the block at home with only a cane less than two weeks later," says Jim. Today, Susan is pain-free, comfortably roaming the Doylestown Hospital halls where she volunteers as a lay chaplain. Jim is able to enjoy weekly golf games and, more importantly, helping to coach his grandson Brandon on the soccer field.
