What a thrill and gift to be able to water ski and play tennis again; particularly barefoot water-skiing. More importantly is the opportunity to sit with my family at church and the dinner table again. I have lived a very active life, and thought being so active would keep my joints healthy. Unfortunately this wasn’t […]

Knee Replacement

My siblings (Dorine F. and Virgil K.) and I have had wonderful experiences of Dr. Schaap’s skill and care. She did a double knee replacement for me on Feb. 10, 2009. I still marvel at what a beneficial difference that has made in my life. Gratefully, Linda K

Double knee replacement

I was an active male, age 47, who enjoyed tennis, golf, and snow skiing before developing bone on bone degenerative arthritis in my left hip. I lost range of motion and experienced pain with every day use of my hip. I delayed my surgery for four years in hopes of improved materials and techniques. Finally, […]

Hip surgery

Before my surgery, not being able to walk any distance and standing for an extended amount of time bothered me the most. Since my surgery I was able to return back to my job at the computer lab in less then two months and return to the activities I really love; like participating in my […]

Dear Dr. Mulawka, I hope this is going to be helpful for your website. These are some of the activities that I couldn’t have done before my knee surgery. I would walk very gingerly before the surgery, because my knees felt as if they were crumbling. At a women’s retreat, just 3 weeks after surgery, […]

Knee replacement

On Dec 16,2008 Dr Schaap replaced both of my knees. By doing this I got a new life again. I was walking within 2 days of my surgery. Dr Schaap to me is like the pilot that put the plane into the Hudson River. He gave alot of people a second chance. She had previously […]

I am delighted with my muscle sparing hip surgery. The pain was gone immediately. I had my surgery on Friday and was home again on Monday, using only a cane. I was faithful about doing my at home physical therapy 3x a day. I started walking 1/2 mi. when I got home and increased my […]

Muscle sparing hip surgery

Although I never restricted my activities, the groin pain when sitting was the most bothersome to me. Both of my surgeries were with the limited invasive procedure and I was hospitalized three days. I was walking without a walker in two days and without a cane in a week. I am pleased with my results […]

Surgery

Osteoarthritis had caused the cartilage surface to wear out in my hip. At 58 years old, the pain and stiffness had caused me to be less and less active and finally not able to continue a daily physical fitness routine. The procedure was the Dual Incision Muscle-Sparing Surgery and lasted only 1 hour and 15 […]

Charles V. Skiing

Eight months after my hip replacement I hiked above Greeley Bowl at Alta, Utah ready to ski into perfect conditions: 12″ of fresh powder and a clear blue sky. Only one thing was missing – the pain I had endured from my arthritic hip for 20+ years. I’ve always been active but I had given […]

Total knee replacement

Dr. Mulawka gave me my way of life back. Before my first knee replacement in May 2009, at age 70, I had constant knee pain. It was difficult to sit or stand for any length of time. Getting in and out of vehicles was a huge problem. I had given up on taking my walks, […]

Total knee replacement left and right

My compliments and gratitude to Dr. Hiesterman for putting me back together!! Last spring I foolishly hopped over the gas hose while filling my car but caught my sandal on the hose which sent me down to the cement. I completely smashed my wrist. Dr. Hiesterman gently assured me before surgery that he would do […]
