Getting back in the game

This week I had the opportunity to be given a complete tour of the dazzling Orthopedic & Sports Institute of the Fox Valley.

The facility is even more impressive inside than its beautiful outside. OSI is one of our newest partners at WHBY, and it was with great interest that I did the walk-through, checking out everything from the rehab areas to the patient rooms and operating areas that look more like a boutique hotel than a medical facility.

My great interest of course comes from the fact that shortly after Thanksgiving in 2000 I underwent total hip replacement surgery after an old tennis injury had robbed me of my active lifestyle. Now, after over 27,000 miles on a bike, that hip and I are going strong! But like any part, sooner or later it will wear out and I'll need a little refresher. I think when that time comes I'll be here.

Today at 3:30-ish we will visit with OSI's CEO who will have more info about a seminar they are holding there on Thursday evening. Aches. Pains. Replacements? Joint injury? Rehab. Whatever it is....get your life back the way you want it to be again. I never had a regret about my hip replacement.

Heck, come out to the seminar just to get a tour of this very impressive place.
