Sanford, NC – (June 26, 2013) Most consider knee and hip replacement surgery to be a major operation followed by weeks of painful rehabilitation, but that’s not the case at Central Carolina Hospital (CCH) in Sanford. Developments in robotics are revolutionizing this surgery and the technology is putting younger patients back on their feet, nearly pain-free the next day. CCH is one of eight hospitals in the state to offer a new, less invasive option for people needing knee and hip replacements.
At 49, the only way John Parrish could manage his pain was to stop whatever he was doing and sit down and rest. But he couldn’t do this for long. As a landscaper and irrigation specialist, Parrish was active and accustomed to outdoor work. This was how he earned a living.
