Patient Stories

Kristopher D. Collins, MD

Thanks to my care at OrthoVirginia, I can do just about anything now. It's been about 2 years since I had both my hips replaced, one in November and the second one was in April I think. I could not do a whole lot of anything before the surgeries. Just getting in and out of a car was difficult. Going to Wal-Mart and walking around the store was a major effort, as well as picking anything up off the floor or walking my dogs. Dr. Collins had just started at OrthoVA a few months earlier and had been out of residency maybe 3 years or so, so I asked how many of these surgeries he had done, and it was a lot, so I said let's do it! Wish I had done it earlier. I was 61 at the time, but felt like 80. Now, no pain. My recovery was wonderfully short and I am thrilled to be able to climb the very long stair case at my church!! Thanks so much, Dr. Collins!! Keep up the wonderful work!
