There is a great team of caring, competent health care professionals in the Joint Center in the Soin Medical Center. My right knee volunteered to need their services with a total knee replacement. Dr. Aram Donigian orchestrated the surgery with a very engaging and connected operating room team.
The Soin environment offers a small town atmosphere, which I love.
For the day of surgery, the nurses, doctors, nurse practitioners and OR personnel were highly focused and organized. I noticed stainless steel hammers and other carpentry-like tools in the OR - then stopped looking. I sort of didn't want to know too much.
The spinal analgesia calmed my entire being and the propofol gave me sleep and the next thing I knew, I was waking in the recovery room with Nurse Shelby, who exemplified the Soin spirit. She was energetic, caring, honest, helpful, supportive and competent. I had the laughter that wouldn't quit and no pain in my right knee.
Now on the mend with great nurses, PT's, OT's and Nurse coordinators etc., I am being discharged and continue to sing the praises of the Soin Joint Replacement Team.
What a great example of Resilience!
They help each other to get the job done. And they Care. And they care. And they care.
