Randy Lovett is an energetic Santa Rosa resident for whom physical mobility and strength are necessities for work and play alike. In his construction job, Randy regularly lifts heavy objects, climbs scaffolding, and bends down in a crouched position. Outside of work, Randy’s hobbies include participating in rodeos and exercising at the gym to stay competitive at his sport. After decades of enjoying a very physically active lifestyle, arthritis developed in Randy’s right hip. Randy came to see Dr. Gary Stein at SRO who performed a total hip replacement on Randy, and Randy is now pain free and comfortably as active as ever.

He explains, “I put up with the pain in my hip for about three years before I came to see Dr. Stein. Eventually it got to the point where I could hardly walk around the house without experiencing extreme pain. Dr. Stein was great from the moment I met him. He carefully explained everything I needed to know to the point where I felt totally involved in my care and prepared for my surgery. The procedure and my recovery went exactly how he said they would. Throughout my care, Dr. Stein and his medical assistant Cheryl stuck by me and they are both really amazing people to be around.

“My arthritic pain was gone the day after my surgery, and today my mobility is over 90% of what it was before I ever experienced any hip problems! I can once again compete in rodeos, exercise regularly, and get around at work without needing to favor my left side. Needless to say, I am thrilled with the results of my hip replacement, and I owe my thanks to Dr. Stein and the staff at SRO.”
