I had been living with a torn labrum and bone spur in my hip for 6 years. Prior to this discovery I was constantly searching for a reason why my hip hurt all the time. I finally came to Dr. Woodson from a referral from my doctor’s office and he confidently told me he could take care of me. After a couple visits I decided to go thru with the surgery to repair this. He told me once the surgery was complete I would feel no pain. I am amazed and so very pleased!!! NO PAIN IS RIGHT!! My surgery was just 3 days ago and I feel amazing. I am on my way to recovery and just want to say thank you to him and his staff. They reassured me every step of the way all the way to the operating table. I can go on and on……he is a wonderful surgeon and doctor!!!
