I just wanted to write you a brief “thank you” note of appreciation for the hip replacement surgery that you performed on me in late 2006. I have been hiking and biking in many countries around the world free of pain. Check out this photo of me In the Stirling Ranges, SW Australia, note the good hip strength and flexibility! Again, I am forever grateful for your fine surgical skills. May you live long and healthfully!
