Harold Reynolds Speaks About His Hip Replacement Procedure!
Harold Reynolds – former All-Star Second Baseman who played for the Seattle Mariners, Baltimore Orioles, and California Angels, as well as currently serving as an analyst for MLB Network, discusses his Hip Replacement performed by OrthoManhattan’s Roy Davidovitch, MD earlier this year!
Reynolds underwent a hip replacement in May of this year, and after consulting his MLB Network associates and doing his own research, chose Dr. Roy Davidovitch for the procedure. Dr. Davidovitch is a world-renowned hip-surgeon – learn more about him below!
Harold Reynolds was truly amazed after being able to get back on his feet (with the help of crutches) immediately after surgery and was out and about walking within a week of the procedure. He credits Dr. Davidovitch and sticking strictly to the prescribed regimen of physical therapy, medication dosages, and the allowed amounts of physical activity for his quick recovery.
Thanks for the kind words, Harold, and we wish you all the best moving forward!
