Susan's Story: As a fitness instructor and nurse, Susan could not be slowed down by her hip arthritis.
Condition: Avascular Necrosis (bone-on-bone with arthritis of left hip)
Interests: walking, spending time with family, exercises classes
"I live in Scituate, MA with my husband and two beautiful daughters. I work as a Nurse Assistant-HHA in people homes, and I teach a variety of fitness classes, like Pilates, Barre, Spin, Pure Strength and Body Chisel classes.
I had bone-on-bone arthritis in my left hip, and in 2014 I needed a Total Hip Replacement at age 51.
Dr. Kwon is so passionate about being a doctor. He was outstanding! Also his team was also excellent - the nurses, PT, OT, nurse assistants and staff were all awesome and very skillful. I cannot say enough about Dr. Kwon. He is simply the best!
In my own words, I think Mass General is the best hospital!
Thank you so much!"
