Thanks to Dr. Mileti's great skills, this 77 year old golfer who had a shoulder replacement in 2018, got a Hole-in-One last month in Florida!
Many thanks for your help!

My story begins with a common hip replacement in Zanesville, performed by a well-known surgeon. The surgery was not successful, so my surgeon sent me to see a trauma specialist for a revision. Unfortunately, that surgery was unsuccessful as well, and afterward I actually had to manually pop my hip back in the socket because it would pop out. You could even see it on an x-ray!
After two failed hip replacements on same side, the second surgeon wanted to do a third surgery, without really being able to tell me why the first two procedures failed. I advised him that I wanted to go to Columbus to see a specialist. He had worked with Dr. Fowler in the past. They spoke and Dr. Fowler agreed to see me and discovered that I had an infection from my previous surgeries. I scheduled another operation, so Dr. Fowler could help me get better. He took everything out, put a spacer in and left me with a PICC line, a big incision and a wound vac.
At this point, I had been wheelchair bound and unable to put weight on my right hip for 8 months. Once the infection completely cleared up, Dr. Fowler ordered a custom hip and I prepared for another hip replacement surgery. At this point, I never thought I would be able to get around without a wheelchair. Much to my surprise, I was up and able to put weight on my hip the morning following surgery!
If it wasn’t for Dr. Fowler, I would probably still be in a wheelchair. He was so caring and concerned that I put my life and leg in his hands! He also had a very positive attitude, but never kept the truth from me or my family. Dr. Fowler and his medical secretary, Heather, are #1 in my book! I actually feel like Heather and I are friends, as much as we have talked!
Thanks to Dr. Fowler and his team for giving me my life back!

In May of 2019 I was diagnosed for a hip replacement by my rheumatologist at OSU. A good friend of mine works at your office so I chatted with her and went ahead and made an Appt. with Dr. McShane. I put up with the chronic hip pain for a few months and was anxious to get a new hip. The surgery was on Nov. 25th and as I write this it is 5 weeks post-op and I couldn't be happier with the results. Everyone at Ortho One is wonderful and very professional. A very special thanks to Dr. McShane, Ron Hopkins, Jackie Russell, Nichole Centeno, and Jon Williams. You folks are fantastic! Thank you very much!

I had some difficulty getting insurance approval for the Synvisc injection that Dr. Triffon recommended. His team not only called me to tell me about the delay, but Deb H. went above and beyond, contacting my insurance company and staying on the line with them until my treatment was approved.
Other doctors' offices have asked that I call to get the insurance approval. Deb H. took the time to stay on the phone with the insurance company to get approval, so I could get the next available appointment. I was able to get my shot the following week, which has helped manage my knee pain effectively.

I was referred to Dr. Van Aman by my primary care physician, after delaying foot surgery for nearly two years.
Dr. Van Aman viewed my X-ray and explained my need to move forward with surgery, in order to minimize further damage to other body parts. I was not looking forward to the 12 week recovery that he explained was needed in order to fully heal. In the first 5 days after surgery, I took minimal pain medication and after stopping the use of pills completely, I was taken back by the absolute lack of pain!
As part of my treatment, I completed 6 weeks of physical therapy at Orthopedic ONE's Therapy Services location in Westerville. At the beginning, my appointments left me with very tolerable soreness, that would only last a short while. By my last therapy appointment, I was easily completing my regimen with no pain or discomfort.
The entire experience, including all staff I encountered from reception, to nurses, to MA’s, were timely, professional and always explained everything entirely. I thank you all for making “lying around healing” the only troublesome part of the entire journey!
