TotalHipReplacement PatientAt 97-Years-Old, a Redding Man is Pain-Free Following Total Hip Replacement

Before he underwent hip replacement surgery last November, 97-year-old Henry McQuade had been suffering for years with arthritis pain in his left hip. Then, last fall his pain became so unbearable he worried that he wouldn't be able to do many of the things he loved. Outdoor work, including caring for his stunning field of daffodils, was one of the many activities that Henry, who turns 98 in June, looked forward to each spring.

Henry, a retired Joel Barlow High School teacher who lives alone since his wife died, sought help from Dr. Robert Deveney, an orthopedic joint surgeon at Danbury Hospital and Chairman of the Board of Managers, Western Connecticut Health Network Joint and Spine, LLC. Dr. Deveney advised him that since he was in good, overall health, he was a candidate for hip replacement surgery. "He scheduled my surgery for the very next week," said Henry. "I had been in pain for such a long time. I thought if I could fool others that I wasn't in pain, I'd fool myself. But that didn't work." Henry was happy to learn joint replacement surgery might offer a solution - and that his age was not an obstacle.
