One year and two hip replacements later (one on each side), Steve Sharps, 62, of Holderness says, “I never expected to be where I am today. This fall I went hunting at our camp up in Pittsburgh, climbed Crystal Mountain twice, and went canoeing. I feel great.”
Not so this time last year following a fall off a woodpile. Having worked in the woods since he was five years old, and doing business as Sharps Lumber since 1977 logging and selling lumber, the only time he had been in the hospital was when he broke his leg following a logging accident.
Having had a good experience at Speare Memorial Hospital before, he went to see Dr. Victor Gennaro, orthopedic surgeon, at Plymouth Orthopedics & Sports Medicine Clinic. X-rays revealed Steve had arthritis in both hips, and Dr. Gennaro informed him he needed to replace his left hip immediately and the right hip sooner rather than later. Click here to continue…
Steve Danosi of Laconia spent an afternoon clearing shrubs on his property. A couple of hours later he noticed cramping in his right thigh but only gave the discomfort a passing thought. A month later, however, he was walking bent over and had lost muscle tone in his leg.
Being the director of emergency medicine at Speare Memorial Hospital, he sought out his colleague Dr. Victor Gennaro of Plymouth Orthopedics & Sports Medicine. Turns out he had a herniated disk that was crushing a nerve on his right side, hence the pain in his upper right thigh. Because of the pressure on Steve’s nerve, Dr. Gennaro recommended surgery, noting the typical regime of steroid shots and physical therapy would not help. Click here to continue…
Biking with the Thursday Night Hybrid Ride is always a good time, but Donald “Don” Stoppe jokes, “Sometimes it can be too much fun.” Thankfully Dr. Gennaro rides with the group. “We all feel a little safer knowing he’s only a few seconds behind,” says Stoppe. During one of these hybrid rides, while biking down a gravel road going about 25 miles per hour, the front tire of Stoppe’s bike came off and he crashed. Luckily, Dr. Gennaro was there to help. Because of his experiences biking with Dr. Gennaro, when Stoppe recently sustained a knee injury unrelated to the bike, his first choice for surgery was Dr. Gennaro. Says Stoppe of his friend, “What’s great about Dr. Gennaro is that he cares first and foremost about the patient. People seem to think they need to travel to the big city to see a top-notch surgeon, but what they don’t realize is that we have top-notch doctors living (and biking) alongside us right here in our community.”
While preparing wreaths during the busy holiday season, Peggy Smith, the owner of The Flowersmiths in Plymouth, began experiencing numbness in her fingers. Smith had Carpal Tunnel Syndrome for years, but the repeated twisting motion of her wrist necessary to assemble the wreaths resulted in a return of her symptoms. Numerous treatments, including wrist braces and deep tissue massage therapy, all worked for a while, but eventually, the numbness persisted and Smith knew she needed to do something more. She chose Dr. Gennaro because of their good reputation, and because she wanted the convenience of having her surgery done locally. Additionally, she knew Dr. Gennaro used a newer technology to perform the procedure, meaning that her surgery would be non-invasive, resulting in a quicker recovery. Four years ago in January Smith had surgery on both wrists. By February she had recovered 100 percent and was able to get back to work in time to prepare for Valentines Day. “I just can’t say enough about how I was treated. There were no complications with the surgery, the recovery was quick, and I have no scars,” boasts Smith, “It was wonderful working with Speare. I had confidence in Dr. Gennaro, and everything went perfectly.”
