Patient Stories

Steven S. Hughes, MD

Thanks to my care at OrthoVirginia, my surgery was a complete success. Just as Dr. Hughes told me, it would be simple surgery taking 1.5 to 2 hours. I'd spend two nights in the hospital, have a two-week recovery and be back in the yard or garden in a month -- and that's what happened! Plus, I had no pain and never used the Oxycodone, and I got off the Morphine way early. I was well cared for by Dr. Hughes excellent staff, especially his PA Jen Leeman. I hope others who need surgery but are fearful of it decide to proceed and solve the problem that, without surgery, may continue to get worse.
