"I never thought I would still enjoy an active life and pain free."

Emily Ylo,
Total Hip Replacement Recipient






Before his hip replacement, Erwin remembers one particular project in Kuwait where he experienced agonizing pain because of the long distance he had to walk. At another time, after a long flight, Erwin was unable to get up from his seat due to excruciating pain and had to be brought out of the aircraft on a wheelchair. Today, those persistent episodes are just things of the past. Erwin can meet the demands of his critical job with the best of his ability – pain free. Of this he says, “My life has changed, for the better!"

depaepweb2“Six years ago, I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and was experiencing severe pain on both hips. Simple activities such as walking were such an ordeal. Normal day-to-day activities were extremely painful. It was then that I decided to have a hip replacement. That was three years ago. I wish I had done the surgery sooner. I never thought I could enjoy life again and walk pain-free.”

Desiree Quintana, 39 years old.
Bilateral Total Hip Replacement Recipient


depaepweb3“After the surgery I felt like my life went back to normal! I was afraid that I would never be able to walk again.”

depaepweb4"As someone living with systemic lupus, the many years of steroid intake has affected my hip joint significantly that simply walking became a challenge. I had undergone hip replacement, which not only has enabled me to walk with ease, and pain-free but has given back the quality of life I now enjoy. To those of you who hesitate, it is my hope that you do not deny yourselves of worthy possibilities with the freedom of movement. Let health technology help restore your mobility and give you the best life you deserve. I have!
