Patient Stories

Ronald C. Childs, MD

Thanks to my care at OrthoVirginia, I can walk more than 5 feet without having to stop and sit. I can walk up stairs normally, not having to start with a certain leg. The 'normal' life activities I never cherished so much until I was unable to do them. Going from being very active to a lump on the couch over a period of 2 and 1/2 years was enough to finally propel me into having a surgery I swore I would never have. I was all too happy to lament over my ailments and now I need to praise OrthoVirginia and especially Dr. Childs for making my life so much better. I'm only sorry that I waited so long to make such a great decision for me!
