Dr. Swenson orthopedic surgeon Hampton RoadsA New Knee And A New Lease on Life
For many years, persistent arthritis in her right knee has threatened to slow Susie down. The constant pain led to many doctor visits and various treatment options. “We first tried conservative treatments to ease the pain of Susie’s arthritis, including a series of cortisone shots and viscosupplement injections,” explained Dr. Swenson. “However, as her arthritis progressed, these methods became less effective. Eventually, the pain became severe enough to make daily tasks difficult.”



“The world-class A+ good Dr. Aldridge proved his case to me as if there was nothing to it. That still impresses me most. That has been my experience from the welcoming automatic entrance door for the first visit, to the super-friendly, talented, efficient and patient-centered Dr. Aldridge team and the entire HROSM practice. This is a place of dedicated professionals who take a personal interest in the patient while showing deep commitment to the hard work their care requires.”

“This past year Dr. Fithian replaced first my right shoulder and then my left shoulder. My pain is totally gone and my range of motion is better than it has been in years. I have referred several friends to HROSM, and they too have been more than satisfied with their treatment. I have no qualms about referring anyone to HROSM and if any more of my joints go bad, I will know where to go. I hope Dr. Fithian and Dr. Carter know how much I appreciate their special skills.”

D. Farr

“These surgeons were so professional, which is borne out by the results. Six months later, I hardly know I had surgery and my golf game is much improved. The staff and nurses were also very good. I had both knees replaced at the same time and right after surgery you can’t do much for yourself. Professional case was a must and they provided it. For anyone who thinks they may require knee replacement surgery, I can think of none better to put your trust into than Dr. Baddar and Dr. Cavazos. Thank God and thank the doctors for their professional work!”
