Mary Swartz

“I am 89 years old and over the years Dr. Stewart has preformed bilateral hip anthroplasty and a total Rt. knee arthroplasty. My knee was out to the side when I walked into Dr. Stewart's office. He replaced my knee and made it perfectly straight. My friend thought I would end up in a wheelchair after surgery. She couldn't believe the result. Recently that same friend referred her daughter to Dr. Stewart for back surgery. When I moved into assisted living I tripped over a walker and broke my Lt. Hip, 3 months later I broke my Rt. Hip. Dr. Stewart replaced both of my hips and I'm getting around great. I can't wait for the snow to melt so I can drive. ”

“Dr. Stewart performed posterior spinal decompression and fusion of my lumbar spine 2 weeks ago. Before surgery I had extreme pain in my lower back and down my right leg. The only way to control the pain was to sit in a chair and take Tylenol and place heat on my right side. The pain was so bad I couldn't walk. Now, 2 weeks after surgery, I have no pain. I am able to walk the isles at Meijer, pain free. My therapist is very impressed with my results and so am I. I would do the surgery again in a heartbeat.”

“I fell a few years ago and had leg weakness and a difficult time getting up. My family physician ordered physical therapy but things weren't getting better. I went to see Dr. Stewart and he performed spinal decompression and fusion surgery on my lower back. It's been 3 weeks since surgery my weakness is gone and I'm functioning like I never had surgery. I was driving a car, on my own, 4 days after surgery. Thank you Dr. Stewart. ”

“I had a massive right rotator cuff tear and suffered from severe pain that kept me up at night and prevented me from doing simple daily tasks. Dr. Stewart preformed a reverse total shoulder arthroplasty on me on April 14, 2014. Now I can do anything. I am without any pain. I work in my garden, do canning and can even wash windows & walls. I'm so happy I have my life back to do whatever I please.”

“I had back pain and leg pain. Dr. Stewart determined I did not need a spine operation but that my pain was coming from my arthritic hip. He performed a muscle preserving total hip replacement and now the pain that was in my back and leg is completely gone. Thank you so much, Dr. Stewart.”

“I ruptured my right biceps tendon at work and Dr. Stewart repaired it 4 months ago. Since my surgery I've painted trim around my house, did some wood working, built a few storm doors, and helped a neighbor with his farm. I am able to return to work with no restrictions. My arm feels normal with no pain. Thanks to Dr. Stewart, I am able to do whatever I want. ”

“I was having a lot of pain and could not move my neck without moving my entire body. Two weeks ago Dr. Stewart did an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion on my neck. Today I'm pain free and can move my neck side to side without any difficulty. I'm also very excited to play ball with my children again. Thank you Dr. Stewart. ”

“I want to take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful job you did on my hip replacements, Dr. Stewart. Both surgeries and recoveries went amazingly well and gave me back the lifestyle I once lived. I walk over one hour each day and I do zumba. Most days I forget I had my hips replaced. Thank you Dr. Stewart ”

“Two years ago I fell while visiting a church and shattered my shoulder and fractured my elbow. I was in so much pain. Dr. Stewart performed a partial shoulder and I was feeling better shortly after surgery. Today I'm doing great. I was a music director for 21 years and now I'm a sub in the dioceses and work at the cathedral as an organist. I'm really grateful I can play again. Thank you Dr. Stewart ”

“After many years of severe pain in my right knee I decided to have it replaced. Dr. Stewart performed a total knee arthroplasty a couple of months ago and I'm regretting not doing it sooner. Prior to surgery, by midday, I was unable to work due to the severe pain I was having. Now, I'm back to working a full day and feeling great when I get home to do the things I enjoy. I'm very glad I saw Dr. Stewart. I definitely made the right choice.”

“3 weeks ago I had a MAKO partial knee replacement. Before surgery I had a lot of pain and had a difficult time walking. 2 weeks after surgery I walked all over Menards with my husband. Today I am doing the things I love and I'm able to start living my life without pain. I couldn't be more excited to celebrate the holidays pain free. And by the way I went home the same day from surgery.”

“3 weeks ago I had a reverse shoulder arthroplasty. Before surgery it was very difficult for me to use my left arm. When I did need to use it it would grind and was very painful. It has been 3 weeks since surgery and I can reach and grab things without any difficulties. Thank you Dr. Stewart ”
