In the beginning of 2016, I had developed an illness which needed treatment and a strong medication. My doctors told me that the pain I was experiencing was to be expected and would go away once the medication was stopped. It did not stop and in fact, it got much worse. After several unsuccessful visits to different doctors, I decided to see if this pain I was experiencing might somehow be arthritic. I saw Dr. Miranda at Florida Orthopaedic Institute at their Brandon location. I was very impressed with the facility and the fast handling of anything that needed to be done when I met with Dr. Miranda. He informed me that my problem was arthritis and the only solution would be to have surgery done. I was suffering so much that I asked how soon could he perform the surgery. In about two weeks everything that needed to be done prior to the surgery was promptly taken care of. Dr. Miranda successfully performed the surgery and I was in the hospital one day and released the next day. My care after the surgery was excellent.
As soon as I got home, I started physical therapy and I was already seeing improvement with less and less pain. I walked with a walker for only two days and no longer wanted to use as it became no longer necessary. I was so good after the surgery that I did not have to have more than a week of physical therapy. I had no pain at all after about two months and I certainly was glad I had the surgery done. If I ever have a problem with a hip or knee, I would definitely not hesitate to see Dr. Miranda to have my problem solved. I walk perfectly now and even better than I have in many years. Thank you very much Dr. Miranda!
